Meet the Candidates for the 2013 ARIN Elections

By Jennifer Bly - Public Affairs Specialist, ARIN

Team ARIN slate of candidates now available 2013 elections

With ARIN 32 in Phoenix just around the corner, it is just about time for ARIN elections. There are three distinct elections this year—one for the Board of Trustees, one for the Advisory Council (AC) and one for the NRO Number Council. The initial slate of candidates has been announced and you can now read their biographies and cast a statement of support right here at TeamARIN.

Get to Know the Candidates

All the candidates completed a questionnaire to help you learn more about them and their position on issues facing the ARIN community.  This year candidates told us their thoughts on items like:

  • What is ARIN’s role, if any, in promoting IPv6 adoption?
  • What are ARIN’s greatest challenges and how do you see ARIN addressing them?
  • What is your position on the multi-stakeholder Internet governance?

Take the time to read through their answers and to get to know where they coming from and use this information to inform your voting decision.

If you already know a candidate, and think they’d be a good fit for the position, consider leaving a public statement of support for them. Your insights can help other voters determine how they should cast their ballot.  Likewise you can read statements of support for each candidate directly below their answers to the questionnaire.

Before we send you off to learn more about our candidates, please give us the chance to introduce them to you.
