We don’t ask candidates which region they are from; however, from personal memory I believe the last candidate who was associated with the Caribbean sector was Bernadette Lewis in 2013.  Results: https://www.arin.net/vault/announcements/2013/20131023.html <https://www.arin.net/vault/announcements/2013/20131023.html>

Not counting the CEO there are currently three Board Members reside in  Canada and four Board Members reside in the United States.
