Only One Week Left to Submit Nominations for PIR Board of Directors (Closes Nov 30)

If you would like to help guide the future of the Public Interest Registry (PIR), the non-profit operator of the .ORG, .NGO and .ONG domains, the deadline for nominations is MONDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 2015!

More information about the positions and the required qualifications can be found at:
https://www.internetsociety.org/call-nominations-pir-board-directors

As I noted in an earlier post here on CircleID, there are three open positions on the PIR Board whose terms will begin in mid-2016 and run through mid-2019.

After reading the information about the PIR Board requirements, you are welcome to nominate either yourself or anyone else using the PIR Nomination Form. Nominations close at 23:00 UTC on November 30, 2015, so don’t delay!

The Internet Society Board of Trustees will then begin a selection process that will go through March 2016.

In full disclosure, the Internet Society is my employer but I have no direct connection to PIR. I just think CircleID readers would be obvious potential nominees for the PIR Board.
