ARIN Seeks Community Input for 2019 Candidate Nominee Questionnaires

Posted: Monday, 17 June 2019

In preparation for ARIN’s Board of Trustees, Advisory Council (AC), and Number Resource Organization (NRO) Number Council Call for Nominations on Monday, 15 July, ARIN seeks community input regarding this year’s nominee questionnaires.

In Q4 of each year, ARIN’s Membership elects individuals to the ARIN Board of Trustees and AC, and two out of three years, one ARIN representative to the NRO Number Council. To be considered for a seat on one of these bodies, a nominee must submit an online questionnaire to provide detailed information about their relevant experience and positions on key community issues.

Candidate questionnaire responses will be published online along with their bio via an electronic ARIN 2019 Voter Guide when the Initial Slate of Candidates is announced on Monday, 16 September.

If you have questions that are relevant to policy issues or challenges facing ARIN that you’d like candidates to answer, please send your suggestions to for the 2019 Nomination Committee’s (NomCom) consideration no later than Friday, 21 June 2019. Please be sure to mark whether your question is directed to candidates for the ARIN Board of Trustees, AC, or the NRO Number Council, or any combination of the three.

The 2019 NomCom will review all submissions for the Board and ARIN AC questionnaires, and ARIN’s Executive team will review all submissions for the NRO Number Council questionnaire to determine a final list and phrasing of all candidate questions. (Per the Board-approved ARIN Election Processes, Section III, Nominee Qualification Questionnaires, the ARIN Board of Trustees has already approved a base set of questions to be completed by Trustee nominees, and the NomCom may propose additional questions to be added to the questionnaire.)
