members are elected by ARIN membership.   I can't even nominate myself
because I am personally not an ARIN member and I do not work for an ARIN
member.  I have no idea if I will run again when my term is up but for the
past 13 years I have been nominated and elected by the ARIN members.  If my
"mental center" (as you put it) has drifted from the "community's center"
then they can feel free not to re-elect me.
