ARIN Comment

24 February 2015

Thank you for your suggestion, numbered 2014.7, regarding term limits for the ARIN Advisory Council. Your suggestion that ARIN institute a 6-year contiguous term limit followed by a 3-year ineligibility period for Advisory Council representatives was forwarded to the ARIN Board of Trustees' Governance Committee (GovCom) as input to their deliberations regarding ARIN's governance.

This suggestion was discussed by the ARIN GovCom and Board at the April 2014 meeting, as well as discussed at the ARIN 33 Member Meeting. While there was no official community consultation, there was substantial discussion on various ARIN mailing lists on this topic with no consensus. Given this input in its June 2014 report, the ARIN GovCom indicated that refinements to improve transparency and accountability were the thrust of its work in 2014, and that based on the input received it was not recommending any further changes at this time.

As such, we are closing this suggestion, and thank you for your participation in the ARIN Suggestion and Consultation Process.
