Author: Sylvie LaPerriere I am a Board member on the CANARIE board, and in that capacity I have come to know Nancy over the past 8 years. Nancy brings a broad perspective - financial, legal, organizational and common sense - to her work. She participates and works well with others, facilitates positive actions and conducts herself with the highest degree of professionalism and integrity. As CFO at CANARIE she is very knowledgeable on matters related to networking, the research and education community, and the Internet community. I know that Nancy has contributed extensively on ARIN's Board of Trustees over the past three years, providing some much needed financial and governance expertise to the Board, and I fully support her candidacy for another term.

Author: Barb Carra I've known Nancy for the past 10 years in our respective roles in Canada's National Research and Education Network landscape. She is a solid leader and trusted colleague in the research and education community. As an ARIN Board of Trustee member, Nancy will continue to bring years of experience in governance and financial oversight to the ARIN Board. As the CFO at CANARIE, Canada's not-for-profit Research and Education Network operator, Nancy fundamentally understands the importance of ethical and transparent operations. She is passionate about multi-stakeholder engagement and believes in the community-based internet policy development process that is unique to ARIN. Beyond Nancy's principled and determined work ethic, she is a great mentor and friend. Nancy is a strong woman who faces challenges head on with tenacity. Nancy is thoughtful and open in her approach and brings diversity of ideas to the table. I have a great deal of respect for Nancy.

Author: Alyssa Moore I've known Nancy since 2014 in her capacity as CFO at CANARIE. I was pleased that she agreed to let her name stand for the Board in the 2017 ARIN election. Based on her track record and the positive changes to the organization during her term, it is a good thing for the ARIN community that she is running a second time. Nancy has brought much-needed financial and governance chops to the ARIN Board. The impact of her participation shines through in her clear and concise treasurer's reports - made possible by new metrics and the development of thorough budgets in support of ARIN's operations. Aside from her obvious professional qualifications, Nancy is also a straightforward and hard-working person. You always know where you stand with her. When she makes a commitment, she's in 100%.It is without hesitation that I throw my full support behind her.

Author: Bill St. Arnaud As the former Chief Research Officer at CANARIE, I worked with Nancy for over 10 years, and was always impressed with her desire and ability to contribute to the advancement of the Internet. Nancy has worked extremely effectively in a technical environment and was always keen to learn the relevant skills and understand context in pursuit of excellence in her role. Nancy will bring governance and finance experience as well as her legal training to the Board of Trustees. I strongly support Nancy's candidacy, as she is resilient, passionate, collaborative, and results-oriented. I know that she will make a contribution and a difference to not only the ARIN Board of Trustees but also the ARIN community as a whole.

Author: Peter Thimmesch To the ARIN community, the staff of ARIN and Nancy Carter, It has been only three years since I met and began working with Nancy Carter as part of the ARIN ecosystem. She has accomplished so much in these few years though. She has delved into the often overlooked nitty-gritty details of corporate governance with resolve and integrity. Simply said, she is now the single most valuable member of the Board, in my opinion, and it would be a significant step backwards if her invaluable experience and deliberate methods were suddenly no longer a part of our registry's governance. Therefore, it is without hesitation that I plea for her re-election to remain a member of the Board of Trustees, as she truly understands the meaning, responsibilities and commitment to be a Trustee.

Author: Erik-Jan Bos Nancy is an experienced executive in the not-for-profit sector, with a long term proven track record in governance, finance, legal, and program delivery. She has shown over and over again to well understand the Internet environment we work in and we live in. As Nancy has been active in working groups that have a global reach, she has a clear view on the big picture of the Internet, in numerous dimensions. I have the pleasure of working with Nancy in these global working groups, and I truly believe that she can leverage this vast experience and invaluable view on the Internet at large in her role at the ARIN Board of Trustees, once she is reelected into the Board. On top of that all, Nancy is an awesome person to work with, kind and dedicated to the job.

Author: Andrew Dul I support Nancy's reelection to the ARIN Board of Trustees. Her financial background and expertise has been a valuable addition to the Board and ARIN as an organization. The additional insight that she has brought to the organization is something that Board needed and continues to need as we navigate through the current unknowns of today and the longer term transition to a primary IPv6 world.

Author: Peter Thimmesch To the ARIN community, the staff of ARIN and Tina Morris, I have had the pleasure to get to know Tina, both in a professional transactional capacity and through long hours of debate/discussions, her Internet policy/services at-large views too. I will address each below; Over that last 4+ years, I have been fortunate to work alongside Tina through numerous detailed and complex business transactions. Never once did I feel that she wasn't up-front, above reproach and throughly engaged. She was a committed partner in all-phases and worked well with each various team member. She understood each component, its requirements and guided a bevy of concurrent issues with complete aplomb. She showed a near textbook recall of each separate detail. Why does this matter? Being on the Board of Trustees for ARIN, this dense understanding will serve the entity exceptionally well as she alone has this intimate experience. As to grasping the vexing disparate levels of services provided by the group of Internet Registries, she had spent years buying and parsing this services from each of them. She again, stands alone in in the global system of working within each registry. Throughout these years, she has spoken with me personally about each one individually and collectively about the areas she sees as been an outlier or ripe for replication. Her strong sense of equality lends itself to enabling the Board to lead the global system to embrace a framework to secure routing, lead in the sharing of best practices and most importantly be a leader in bringing inspiration to underdeveloped classes of members of the overall community to be involved. So it is with complete confidence and sincere appreciation that I wholeheartedly state my full, unconditional support for Tina Morris to be chosen to serve our region's Internet Registry's Board of Trustees.

Author: Andy Newton I have known Tina for over a decade, and I believe she brings the correct balance of technical knowledge, business know-how and Internet-governance experience to help guide ARIN in the right direction. From her professional experience and service to the broader Internet community, she is uniquely qualified to understand ARIN's role with respect to the other RIRs and the services, strengths and benefits each RIR brings to the Internet. Tina's focus and willingness to tackle the legal hurdles standing in the way of RPKI adoption in the ARIN region and her push to make ARIN more operationally excellent stand her apart from other candidates.

Author: Amy Potter Tina Morris is a much needed voice on the Board of Trustees. She has both the technical knowledge and business-acumen required to help ARIN address the biggest issues it faces today. She spent many years as an Engineer for a major cable provider, and understands the impact that ARIN has on network operators. She has spent the past six years doing technical business development for a major cloud provider, and understands both the high-level and day-to-day business decisions ARIN members deal with. She has vast experience with the IPv4 market and the impact that IPv4 exhaustion and ARIN policies have on organizations in our region. She is committed to RPKI and increasing ARIN's ability to meet the operational needs of its members. I think she is exactly what the ARIN Board of Trustees needs.
