CIRA's board of directors is democratically elected by CIRA members. Membership is free to anyone that registers a dot-ca domain. All members get one vote regardless of how many domains they have registered. There are three ex-officio non-voting appointed directors. All voting directors are elected by the members. One of the ex-officio directors is a representative of Industry Canada. The Canadian government through Industry Canada plays an advisory role to the board. The other non-voting directors are the CEO and John Demco the founder of the dot-ca registry when it was operated by volunteers working at UBC.

We have drifted way off the topic. I'm happy to talk about CIRA but we should start a new topic if you want to continue this discussion.
