On behalf of the Internet Society’s Board of Trustees Elections Committee, I wish to extend our appreciation and thanks to all of the nominees and candidates for the Board of Trustees Elections in 2016. We are pleased and honored that such well-qualified individuals stepped forward and committed themselves to serve on the Internet Society Board.

A list of all Chapters eligible to vote in the 2016 election, indicating which Chapters exercised their voting privilege, is posted to the Chapters Leaders area in Connect.
In the Organizational Membership election three candidates were available for two open Trustee seats. In the election, each organizational member vote was weighted between 1 and 6 based on the membership category. Each voter had two votes. Desiree Miloshevic received 202 weighted votes out of the 240 weighted votes cast. Harish Pillay received 94 weighted votes out of the 240 weighted votes cast. The other candidate received fewer votes.
