The .ORG Advisory Council has been a valuable global resource for the Public Interest Registry (PIR) management for providing advice on policy, outreach, and new services to improve registry operations and support the noncommercial .ORG community. The council consists of 15 members, with at least 2 from each of the following 6 regions: Asia, Asia Pacific, Africa, Europe, North America and Latin America, selected by the PIR board of directors in accordance with the Charter of the Council. All seats are for three-year terms.

We would like your help in soliciting the best possible nominees for the open seats. We are seeking individuals with significant Internet leadership experience within the nonprofit, nongovernmental organization (NGO) and domain name arenas who represent the broad and geographically diverse spectrum of the global noncommercial community.

Interested individuals are encouraged to submit nominations, including self-nominations. A nomination statement of approximately 400 words should include details of the nominee's experience with the Internet, commitment to promoting the noncommercial use of the Internet, understanding of the technical or policy issues facing the .ORG registry, and perspectives regarding the needs of the .ORG community. A current biography and digital photograph also are requested.
