ARIN Elections (Logo)

Each Fall, representatives from ARIN’s General Members in Good Standing elect candidates to the ARIN Board of Trustees and Advisory Council (AC) to serve staggered three-year terms. Visit the Board of Trustees page or Advisory Council page for more information on either body and the ARIN Election Processes page for specifics about each step of the election process.

Two out of three years, eligible ARIN Member organizations' Voting Contacts and Fall NANOG/ARIN Meeting attendees elect one ARIN representative to the Number Resource Organization Number Council (NRO NC) to serve a staggered three-year term. Every third year, ARIN’s Board of Trustees appoints an ARIN representative from a community-developed pool of nominees. To learn more about the NRO NC, visit the NRO NC website. For more information on this election process specifically, visit the NRO NC election details page.
