Call for Nominations to the Public Interest Registry .ORG Advisory Council
Posted by PIR on Jan 16, 2007

The .ORG Advisory Council has been a valuable global resource for the 
Public Interest Registry (PIR) management in the areas of policy, 
outreach, new services and support. The council continues to provide 
PIR with beneficial recommendations to improve registry operations 
and support the noncommercial .ORG community. Eight of the 21 
Advisory Council seats are to be filled on April 2, 2007. Six seats 
are for three-year terms, one seat is a two-year term and one seat is 
a one-year term. We would like your help in soliciting the best 
possible nominees for the open seats. We are seeking individuals with 
significant Internet leadership experience within the nonprofit, 
nongovernmental organization (NGO) and domain name arenas who 
represent the broad and geographically diverse spectrum of the global 
noncommercial community.

Interested individuals are encouraged to submit nominations, 
including self-nominations. A nomination statement of approximately 
400 words should include details of the nominee's experience with the 
Internet, commitment to promoting the noncommercial use of the 
Internet, understanding of the technical or policy issues facing the 
.ORG registry, and perspectives regarding the needs of the .ORG 
community. A current biography and digital photograph also are 

The council consists of 21 members selected by the PIR board of 
directors in accordance with the Charter of the Council [PDF] 
<http://www.pir.org/PDFs/pir_ac_charter.pdf>. New council members 
will be announced April 2, 2007. Nominations must be submitted by 
Wednesday March 14, 2007. Please submit nominations to 
<nominations at pir.org>.
