Andrew - 

Interestingly enough, such a mechanism exists today within the Nomination Committee charter.  While to date it has only been used to encourage an improvement in overall diversity in the composition of the candidate slates,  nothing precludes it from being used to make more specific requests.   

The guidance within the 2018 NomCom charter reads as follows - 

	"ARIN Board Guidance to the 2018 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 NomCom for its consideration in the development of the candidate slates.”
