Just in case anyone missed the nuance, I see value in asking the
engaged and hardworking volunteers on the AC to sit out once in a
while, just long enough to regain perspective from the outside. I
don't see why that need be for longer than until the next election. I
also note that we haven't had so many qualified volunteers for the
position that we can afford to have folks sit out for three years.

Change for change's sake is rarely for the better. Stability is
usually a good thing. I don't see rotating out AC members having a
negative impact on ARIN's overall stability. Frequent turnover on the
board, however...
