Call for nominations
An election for the two Co-Chair positions will be held as the first item on the SIG meeting agenda at APNIC 45. The procedures are outlined in 2.6. Electing a Chair or Co-Chair of the Guidelines.
Nominations for the position will be declared open on 23 January 2018 and close on 22 February 2018. Nominations can be lodged using a form published on this site during that time period. The list of candidates and their statements will be also published here.
A Chair and two Co-Chairs were last elected at the Policy SIG meeting during APNIC 43. At that time, the nominees for the Co-Chair positions agreed to serve a one-year term rather than a two-year term. This allowed “for the staggered Chair and Co-Chair election timetable” required by the APNIC SIG Guidelines.
Nominees and self-nominees will be required to attest they can perform the Co-Chair responsibilities detailed in the SIG Guidelines.
If a candidate is unable to obtain funding from their employer, APNIC can provide travel support allowing one (1) Co-Chair to attend each APNIC conference. This ensures both can meet the minimum requirement to attend one SIG meeting per year.
