The ARIN Board of Trustees adopted Bylaws changes at its meeting on 20 
May 2016. The changes include:

*  Improving language for appointment of a Trustee for purposes of 
improving overall Board diversity of skills or background

*  Clarifying the staggering of terms for Trustee and Advisory Council 

*  Modifying the Trustee removal process to make removals by the Board 
of Trustees subject to membership ratification

*  Clarifying the process for interim appointments and partial terms

*  Changing the processes for Bylaws changes and Articles of 
Incorporation changes so all changes are sent to community consultation 
before final adoption by the Board of Trustees.

These changes were adopted following the Community Consultation on 
Bylaws Changes held 3 March to 2 April 2016. The changes include Article 
VI, Sections 1.b., 3, 4, 6, 7 and Article X, Sections 5 and 6.
