Trustees, the ARIN 2002 Nomination Committee has decided to extend the

ARIN Board of Trustees has been reopened.  Nominations must be received
by 23:59 EDT October 15, 2002 in order to be eligible.

ARIN Members to participate in this nominations process.

ARIN's Board of Trustees is responsible for the business affairs, 
financial health, and property of ARIN. Board nominees should be able to
demonstrate experience in performing fiduciary duties at the corporate 
level and making high-level budgetary, contractual, or other 
corporate/executive decisions. Board nominees should be available to 
attend several board meetings a year. 

There are three ways to become a candidate for a seat on the Board of 

  1. Be nominated by an ARIN member. Nominees do not have to be ARIN 
  2. If you are an ARIN member, you may self-nominate. 
  3. Nomination by petition as described below. 

  Nominations for the Board may be made without the Nomination
  Committee's participation by presenting a petition signed by 
  5% of the total ARIN membership. Current ARIN membership 
  totals 1,840; therefore ninety two (92) members will be required 
  to send statements of support to elections at arin.net in order for 
  the petitioning candidate to be nominated 

Per the ARIN Bylaws, a Nomination Committee has been formed to aid 
in the Board of Trustees election process. The seven-member 2002 
Nomination Committee members are: 

  Board Representatives: Scott Bradner, Bill Manning 
  Advisory Council Representatives: Bill Darte, Barbara Roseman 
  General Members Representatives: Daniel Salama, IFX Corporation; 
          Miguel Fernandez, Prima SA; Kris Foster, Telus 

The Nomination Committee is responsible for identifying and recruiting 
nominees, in addition to certifying a properly selected list of
candidates for the Board of Trustees. The Nomination Committee is 
required to send at least two (2) candidates per open seat to the 
general membership for a vote.
