Elections: 2022

General Elections for Board of Directors and any proposed Bylaw Amendments will take place in October 2022. Stay tuned for further information to be posted by mid-August.

The NANOG Board of Directors is an active and engaged component of NANOG. The Board is responsible for and works closely with Committees to promote, support and improve NANOG. The Board is responsible for the selection of all committees including, but not limited to, the Program Committee. The Board is responsible to the members ensuring that the NANOG organization remains open, relevant, and useful and financially sound. A Voting Board member will be appointed to serve as ex-officio to NANOG committees to facilitate communication. A voting member of the Board of Directors may not serve concurrently on the Board of Directors and other committees.


Per the NANOG bylaws, Board members must also be NANOG members in good standing, and must attend at least two of three yearly NANOG meetings while in office. Each candidate must declare any and all affiliation(s) relevant to NANOG, which will include his or her main employer, as well as any other major relationships (for instance, if a candidate's primary employer is a nonprofit entity which is sponsored by a vendor, the candidate would declare both the nonprofit and the vendor as affiliations).

A good candidate will have experience with Internet technology, operations, and governance organizations as well as the principles and practices which guide them. Consensus organizing, leadership, outreach, and communications skills are prized, and a willingness to be engaged in the governance process is required.
