ARIN Reopens Call for Volunteers for the 2019 Nomination Committee

Posted: Friday, 10 May 2019

ARIN wants you! Did you know that ARIN’s Nomination Committee (NomCom) plays a vital role in the annual ARIN Elections? ARIN has reopened its call for volunteers to serve on the 2019 Nomination Committee (NomCom). ARIN seeks five volunteer representatives from General Members in Good Standing to serve a half-year term on this key committee.

Each year, the NomCom is responsible for identifying, recruiting, and assessing candidates who are standing for election to the ARIN Board of Trustees and Advisory Council (AC), as well as putting forth an initial slate of candidates to the ARIN Membership for election. This is done in accordance with ARIN’s Bylaws and Election Processes.

The NomCom is comprised of seven representatives, including two members from the ARIN Board of Trustees (one serving as Chair) who then select and appoint five individual representatives from a General Membership pool of volunteers. The representatives may include up to two serving AC members.

Volunteer representatives must be from an ARIN Member organization that is in good standing. No person may serve as a member of the NomCom and be a candidate for election in the same year.

Individuals interested in learning more about the committee’s role and responsibilities can review the Charter for the 2019 Nomination Committee (NomCom) at the link below:
