Nominations For Board of Public Interest Registry (Operator of .ORG) Close Nov 24

Dan York

Would you be interested in helping guide the future of the Public Interest Registry (PIR), the non-profit operator of the .ORG domain? If so, the Internet Society is seeking nominations for three positions on the PIR Board of Directors. The nominations deadline is Monday, November 24, 2014.

More information, qualification requirements and the submission form can be found at:

http://www.internetsociety.org/pir-call-nominations

As indicated on that page:

The Director positions are a 3-year term that begins midyear 2015 and expires midyear 2018. PIR's business is to manage an international registry of .ORG domain names, and is currently in the process of preparing to manage an additional registry of .NGO and .ONG domain names, solely intended for NGOs around the world.

If you are interested in helping advance the mission and activities of PIR, please do consider applying by this coming Monday!

P.S. In full disclosure, the Internet Society is my employer but I have no direct connection to PIR and am passing this along purely because I think members of the CircleID community of readers might be excellent candidates for these positions.
