2015 NANOG Elections General Information

Hello NANOGers!

We are once again approaching the annual NANOG election and appointment time. In addition to the "call for nominations" message at the opening of the process, the following is an overview and timeline of the actual election process. We encourage those in the community who are not currently NANOG members to consider becoming members of NANOG and to consider standing for a position in our leadership. Through membership and voting, you will be an active participant in directing all NANOG activities.

Only NANOG members are eligible to vote and serve in the 2015 election process. Click here to become a member today!

At the December 15, 2014 NANOG Board meeting, the Board of Directors voted to extend the term of all current Communications and Program Committee members through February 2016.  In early January 2015, all members of the committees agreed to the extension.  Therefore, in this 2015 annual election process, there will be no committee member vacancies.  


If you care about NANOG and think that you would like to take a turn at volunteering your time to help make it better please consider joining as a member and running for a position. If you know someone else that you believe would be interested, nominate them by completing the Online Process.   Any questions should be submitted to [email protected].

As NANOG continues to evolve, our Board of Directors and Committees will continue to play an increasingly important role in our success. By joining now, you can be an integral part of the process.

For more information about the role of a Board of Director or any Committee Member, or to find out more about what's involved in serving, please consult the current NANOG Bylaws or follow the links to the Responsibilities documents provided at the top of this page.

Best regards,
Daniel Golding
On behalf of the NANOG Board of Directors
