Internet Society Seeks Nominations for Board of Trustees

Are you passionate about preserving the global, open Internet? Do you have experience in Internet standards, development or public policy? If so, please consider applying for one of the open seats on the Internet Society Board of Trustees.

The Internet Society serves a pivotal role in the world as a leader on Internet policy, technical, economic, and social matters, and as the organizational home of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). Working with members and Chapters around the world, the Internet Society promotes the continued evolution and growth of the open Internet for everyone. The Board of Trustees provides strategic direction, inspiration, and oversight to advance the Society’s mission.

Based on a rotating schedule, in 2015 the Internet Society’s Organization members will elect one Trustee; Chapters will elect one Trustee, and the IETF will select two Trustees. Membership in the Internet Society is not required to nominate someone (including yourself), to stand for election, or to serve on the Board. Following an orientation program, all new Trustees will begin 3-year terms commencing with the Society’s annual general meeting in July 2015.

Nominations close at 23:59 UTC on December 20, 2014. Find out more by reading the Call for Nominations and other information available at: http://www.internetsociety.org/trustees
