You keep talking about "diversity of background" but have not concretely defined what that means. Playing loosey goosey with the terminology makes the whole thing theater.

Bill -

At this time, the only more detailed expression of Board intent
regarding diversity would be in the directions to NomCom, as
contained in their charter -


"d. ARIN Board Guidance to the 2017 NomCom

The ARIN Board of Trustees notes that diversity in the composition of the Board and the Advisory Council (including but not limited to gender, industry, and geographic diversity) is encouraged, and provides this guidance to the 2017 NomCom for its consideration in the development of the candidate slates."

Given that the Board has been listening to the community on

this issue (and there are quite a range of views), it is not certain

that a more precise definition is possible.



John Curran

President and CEO
