 NOMINATIONS FOR 2014 AFRINIC BOARD ELECTION ARE NOW CLOSED.

According to Section 13 of the AFRINIC by-laws, 2 Board seats will be up for renewal in June 2014. In application of the new by-laws, the second seat of the two non-regional Directors (Seat 8) will also need to be filled.

We are pleased to invite nominations for candidates to fill these three seats.

 

Any suitable natural person residing in one of the above regions can be nominated (for that sub-region) provided they comply with the requirements in Section 13 of the by-laws. Seat 8 can be filled from any AFRINIC region provided they comply with the requirements in Section 13 of the by-laws.
