I would support adding additional seats for the purpose of increasing
such seats had some sore of restriction...
For example each of the three new seats will be scoped as follows:
1 seat will only have nominations from Caribbean region community.
1 seat will only have nominations from individuals identifying as a women
1 seat will be designated as a "new comer" and will only have nominations
that have never served on the ARIN Board.
This proposal lacks any such restriction.
