As a result of the Elections for Board seats 5 & 6 that took place on Friday 05 June 2015 during the Annual General Members' Meeting (AGMM) in Tunis, we are pleased to announce the appointment of the following candidates to the AFRINIC Board:
The new Board members will serve for a term of three years starting 01 July 2015. We congratulate the new Board Members and wish them success in their new roles.
During this meeting, the following two directors also announced their decision to resign from the Board with immediate effect:
- Paulos Nyirenda (Southern Africa)
- Badru Ntege (Eastern Africa)
They will be replaced in the Board by the following two people, who will serve until the end of their terms on 30 June 2015:
- Mark Elkins (formerly the Alternate director for Southern Africa
- John Walubengo (formerly the Alternate director for Eastern Africa)
The now-vacant posts of Alternate Directors for the two affected regions will not be replaced, because the position of Alternate Director is being phased out per the bylaws approved in 2013.
We would like to thank all the other candidates who stood for this election, as well as the outgoing board members. Their interest to serve the community is highly appreciated.
