The AfriNIC board is pleased to announce that Alan Barret’s term on the NRO-NC has been extended.
Andy Linton has been appointed by the APNIC Executive Council as a representative on the Number Resource Organization (NRO) Number Council (NC).
We are about halfway through the ICANN Board Seat 9 nomination phase, which ends on 16 January 2012. If you are considering nominating someone, do not wait until the end of the nomination phase. Nominees will need time to complete the necessary documents, and furthermore, the ASO AC Qualification Review Committee will need time to review those documents and select candidates. This must all be done by the close of the nomination phase.
On Saturday, 3 December 2011, maintenance work will be conducted on the backend storage for the NRO/ASO websites and mailing lists. The websites will be inaccessible for a period of approximately one hour at some point during the maintenance window of 9:00 – 17:00 CET (GMT+1). Email will also be unavailable while the website is down, and any email received will be queued for delivery once operations resume.
