I resigned my position on the AC when I moved to Europe to work for an ISP 
(GTS/Ebone) whose operations where about 99.5% within the RIPE region. It 
didn't seem right to stay on in that situation. At the time I was already 
considering resigning because my work was taking up more of my time that 
it had been when I was voted onto the AC. 

Now I am working for a global network provider which has somewhere between 
40% and 50% of its activity within North America which is why I am once 
again interested in ARIN affairs.

Looking at the AC from the outside, I don't see much external evidence of 
the effort that goes into the job. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but 
it means that we may be incorrectly assuming that the job is easy or the 
workload is light. I wouldn't be surprised to find that some AC members 
have resigned when they discovered what the job really entails. That's 
perfectly normal in an organization like ARIN.
