Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the Board of Trustees decision 
to increase the size of the elected Board membership.

I am strongly in favor of diversity as a goal for the makeup of the ARIN 
Board of Trustees.  ARIN is turning 20 this year, and not a single woman 
or non-white person has ever been elected to the Board (though two women 
have served: Kim Hubbard as CEO and Merike Kaeo as a current appointee).

It is difficult, however, to offer support for the current consultation 
without knowing why the Board collectively feels this is the correct 
solution to the problem. There are many options on the table (term limits, 
evaluations, etc.), and the Board chose this one. Why did it do so, and 
why is this better than other solutions?

Thank you,
