The role of the Public Interest Registry Advisory Council is to represent the voice of the .org, .ngo and .ong end-user communities to Public Interest Registry and serve as an intermediary between end users and Public Interest Registry on everything from technical to policy to social issues affecting the internet. The council also provides input and recommendations for new registry strategies, policies, services and education initiatives to meet the needs of the niche communities.
The Council is accepting applications, including self-nominations, for five open council seats. The Council members will reflect a diversity of sectors, potentially including, but not limited to, educational, artistic, cultural, human rights, political, religious, internet technology/domain and scientific sectors. No two members of the Council will be from the same organisation and the Board will work toward selection of an approximately equal representation of small, medium and large organisations. The members are selected by the Public Interest Registry Board of Directors in accordance with the Council Charter. All seats are for three year terms.
We would like your help in soliciting the best possible nominees. New members must have experience working in the domain industry and must have demonstrated commitment to the responsible, ethical and effective use of the internet. Strong English communications skills are preferred as the Council will convene and communicate in English.
Interested individuals can nominate themselves or other candidates using this form. Candidates should submit their expression of interest and qualifications, three references, and biographical information highlighting relevant experience, expertise, and contact information by April 12, 2019.
