Respectfully, this is an impossibly subjective standard on which to hang a credible decision making process. Pending an objective standard of diversity accepted by the existing board, I believe the question of enlarging the board should halt. Full stop.

Bill -

   To some extent, the Board has ramped up its discussion of diversity as a result
   of community-expressed interest in the topic (e.g. as raised from the floor at the
   recent ARIN meetings...)   I do not recall any objective standard of diversity having
   been suggested, but given that the Board is trying to be responsive to community
   input, perhaps the Board should hear more from the community on what objective
   standard of diversity it feels would be appropriate.  Do you have a specific standard
   in mind?

President and CEO
