The Public Interest Registry (PIR) is the non-profit operator of the .ORG, .NGO and .ONG domains. PIR has been a champion for a free and open Internet for more than 15 years with a clear mission to be an exemplary domain name registry, provide a trusted digital identity and help educate those who dedicate themselves to improving our world.

If you or someone you know has the interest and qualifications to help guide the future of PIR, the Internet Society invites you to submit a nomination for a seat on the PIR Board of Directors.

Prior board or senior executive experience is preferred. All directors must have an appreciation for PIR’s Mission and the potential impact of PIR decisions on the customers of PIR and the global community served by .ORG and the other TLDs PIR operates. Directors must be able to read and understand a balance sheet, as well as read and communicate effectively in the English language.

Gender balance, geographic, cultural, and other forms of diversity will also be considered during the selection process.

In 2022 there are three positions opening on the PIR Board. The appointed directors will serve three-year terms, beginning mid-year in 2022.

More information about the position, the qualifications, and a link to the nomination form can be found at:

The deadline for nominations is 12:00 UTC on February 1, 2022.
