Would you be interested in helping guide the future of the Public Interest Registry (PIR), the non-profit operator of the .ORG, .NGO and .ONG domains? If so, the Internet Society is seeking nominations for three positions on the PIR Board of Directors. The nominations deadline is Monday, November 30, 2015.
More information about the positions and the required qualifications can be found at:
As noted on that page:
The Internet Society is now accepting nominations for the Board of Directors of the Public Interest Registry (PIR). PIR's business is to manage the international registry of .org, .ngo, and .ong domain names, as well as associated Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs), and the new OnGood business.
In 2016 there are three positions opening on the PIR Board. Directors will serve a 3-year term that begins mid-year 2016 and expires mid-year 2019.
If you are interested in being considered as a candidate, please see the form to submit toward the bottom of the info page.
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.
