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 2011.

The Board of Trustees and Advisory Council election has a Nomination 
Committee (NomCom) that is responsible for identifying, recruiting, and 
certifying a properly selected slate of candidates to be placed in 
nomination before the membership for election. This year's NomCom 
members are: Board of Trustee members Paul Andersen and Paul Vixie, 
Advisory Council members Chris Grundemann and Chris Morrow, and general 
member volunteers Dmitry Kohmanyuk, Tina Morris, and John Kuhn. Paul 
Vixie is serving as NomCom Chair.

New Board and Advisory Council terms begin 1 January 2012. The two Board 
seats to be opening are held by Timothy Denton and Bill Woodcock. The 
five Advisory Council seats to be opening are currently held by: Dan 
Alexander, Marc Crandall, Bill Darte, David Farmer, and John Sweeting. 
ARIN Board and Advisory Council incumbents may be re-elected for 
consecutive terms.

Please note:

1. You must be a Trustee or an ARIN General Member in good standing to 
make nominations. However, those nominated do not need to be ARIN 
members. Self-nominations from General Members in good standing are 
permitted. A petition process will be available to nonmembers seeking to 
nominate themselves.
