ARIN seeks community input regarding this year’s ARIN Board of Trustees 
and Advisory Council (AC), and Number Resource Organization (NRO) Number 
Council nominee questionnaires.

In the fourth quarter of each year, ARIN’s Membership elects individuals 
to the ARIN Board of Trustees and AC, and two out of three years, one 
ARIN representative to the NRO Number Council. This year the NRO Number 
Council representative will be appointed by the Board of Trustees. To be 
considered for a seat on one of these bodies, a nominee must submit an 
online questionnaire that provides detailed information about their 
relevant experience and position on key community issues.

ARIN Board of Trustees and AC nominee questionnaire responses will be 
published online along with their biography via an electronic 2020 ARIN 
Voter Guide when the Initial Slate of Candidates is announced on Monday, 
14 September 2020.

If you have questions specific to policy issues or challenges facing 
ARIN that you’d like nominees to answer, please send your suggestions to 
members at arin.net for the 2020 ARIN Nominations Committee’s (NomCom) 
consideration no later than Friday, 8 May. Please mark whether your 
question(s) is directed to nominees for the ARIN Board of Trustees or 
AC, or the NRO Number Council, or any combination of the three.

The 2020 NomCom will review all questionnaire submissions for the ARIN 
Board and AC, and ARIN’s Executive team will review all questionnaire 
submissions for the NRO Number Council to determine a final list and 
phrasing of all candidate nominee questions. Per the Board-approved ARIN 
Election Processes, Section III, Nominee Qualification Questionnaires, 
the ARIN Board of Trustees has already approved a base set of questions 
to be completed by Trustee nominees, and the NomCom may propose 
additional questions to be added to the questionnaire but may not alter 
or revoke the Board-approved questions.
