ARIN is issuing an open call for General Members in good standing to
nominate candidates for two (2) seats on the Board of Trustees and
five (5) seats on the Advisory Council that become open when current
terms expire on 31 December 2006.

selected slate of candidates to be placed in nomination before the
membership for election. This year’s NomCom members are: Bill Manning
(Chair), Bill Woodcock, Paul Andersen, Rob Seastrom, Kevin Moshayedi,
David Smith, and Michael Smith.

Bradner and John Curran. The Advisory Council seats opening are
currently held by: Leo Bicknell, Mark Kosters, Lea Roberts, Robert
Seastrom, and Stacy Taylor. Individuals may be re-elected for
consecutive terms.
