Nominations Now Open for 2021 Internet Society Board of Trustees Elections

By George SadowskyMember, Internet Society Board of Trustees

The Internet Society Nominations Committee is now inviting nominations for candidates to serve on the Board of Trustees, effective at the start of the Annual General Meeting which is currently scheduled to be held 31 July-1 August 2021.
 
In 2020-2021, Organization Members and the IETF will each select two Trustees, and Chapters will select one Trustee. Following an orientation program, all new Trustees chosen by the IETF and Chapters will begin three-year terms commencing with the board’s Annual General Meeting. With respect to the two Organizational Members to be chosen, the candidate with the highest weighted vote count will be seated for a three-year term, while the candidate with the second highest weighted vote count will serve the final year of a three-year term initially served by a Trustee who resigned from the board in mid-term.
 
The Board of Trustees provides strategic direction, inspiration, and oversight to advance the Internet Society’s mission of preserving the open, globally-connected, trustworthy and secure Internet for everyone. Trustees also currently serve as members of the Internet Society Foundation’s board.
 
I encourage you and all of your community members to identify appropriate candidates for these positions. Further information regarding the positions, as well as the official Call for Nominations and links to online nomination forms can be found at:

The nominations period closes at 15:00 UTC on Friday, 4 December 2020.
