ISOC-NY Board of Directors – Call for Nominations

ISOC-NY 1997-2017ISOC-NY is a 501(c)3 corporation, chartered by the Internet Society. Under our By-laws we have to hold an election every two years for our various offices and board of directors.

The current officers and directors terms will end on Dec 31 2017, and fresh terms beginning on Jan 1 2018. So, this leaves us just a matter of days to hold the 2017 election, so we’d better get on with it!!

Nominations: Dec 5 – Dec 20 2017 Midnight EST

Voting: Dec 21 – Dec 30 2017 Midnight EST

According to our By-laws the offices are

1. President.
2. Executive Vice-President.
3. Administrative Vice-President.
4. Secretary
5. Assistant Secretary.
6. Treasurer.
7. Assistant Treasurer.

Only the Secretary and Treasurer are permitted to hold more than one position.

There is a minimum of 7 directors and a maximum of 15 directors.

If you look at the Community Portal you’ll see the current directors. It is anticipated some will be stepping down.

The officer’s roles are clearly defined in the Bylaws. What does it mean if you become a director? Well.. it’s hoped that you will attend meetings/events, but more to the point you will be added to several mailing lists:

1) ISOC-NY BOD list, where we hash out the nitty gritty of ISOC-NY activities and policy.

2) the North American Leaders regional list, where we share thoughts with our fellow USA Chapters.

3) the Chapter Delegates list, where we share thoughts with our chapter colleagues around the world.

So, we are looking for nominations! Self-nominations are fine. Just one thing, please make sure that you are a member of the chapter! This can be done by going to and checking your status. If you’re not, just join – doesn’t take a mo’!

Then send your name, with a brief statement of interest saying why you’d be a good director, to before midnight on Wednesday Dec 20 2017. If you are also interested in standing for one of the offices say so. You will then be approved, or not, by the nominations committee.
