Nominations Now Open for 2022 Internet Society Board of Trustees Elections

By George SadowskyMember, Internet Society Board of Trustees

The Internet Society’s Nominations Committee is now inviting nominations for candidates to serve on the Internet Society Board of Trustees. If you or someone you know has the interest and qualifications to help guide the future of the Internet Society please consider submitting a nomination.

The Internet Society’s by-laws specify that a total of four trustees are to be selected each year by the Internet Society’s Chapters, Organization Members, and the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). The number for each community changes annually to maintain the board’s balance.

In 2022, Chapters and the IETF will each select one trustee, and Organization Members will select two trustees. Following an orientation program, all new trustees will begin 3-year terms commencing with the Internet Society’s annual general meeting in June.

The Board of Trustees provides strategic direction, inspiration, and oversight to advance the Internet Society’s mission of preserving the open, globally connected, secure and trustworthy Internet for everyone. Trustees also currently serve as members of the Internet Society Foundation Board.

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, 7 January 2022.
