The ARIN Board of Trustees adopted Bylaws changes at its meeting on 16 
May 2014.

The changes include streamlining text and shifts defining the 
composition of the Nominating Committee (Nom Com) to the NomCom Charter 
for ARIN elections.  This change will be in effect for the upcoming 2014 
election cycle. The Board also updated the bylaws to stipulate a number 
of sections of the bylaws that can not be changed without community 
consultation. These include changes to ARIN's purpose, mission, and 
methodology (Article II, sec. 1 & 2), as well as the process to remove 
of elected officials (Article VI, sec. 6) and voting and reporting 
results of elections (Article VIII, sec. 4).
