American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN)

Suggestion: *

Increase the diversity of the ARIN Advisory Council by requiring at 
least 1 representative from each region ARIN serves. (Canada, Caribbean 
or North Atlantic islands, and the United States)

Value to Community: Having a council member from each region ARIN serves 
would create a more balanced AC representative of all regions served by 


Thank you for your suggestion, numbered 2014.19, regarding increased 
diversity of the ARIN Advisory Council.

The ARIN Board of Trustees has noted the need for diversity in the 
composition of the ARIN AC, although it has not established specific 
regional quotas in its guidance to the 2014 Nomination Committee.

Specifically, the NomCom Charter states that "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 2014 NomCom 
for its consideration in the development of the candidate slate." 

Your suggestion for specific regional quotas will be provided to the 
ARIN Board of Trustees for consideration in formation of next year's 
NomCom charter.

This suggestion is now closed
