[Community-Discuss] [AFRINIC-Announce] Call for Nominations for AFRINIC Board

Hello Alan,

Thanks for your prompt reply.
My main concern is about the time given to apply:
2016 Election: 8 days (12 April to 20 April)
2015 Elections: More than 1 Month ( 18 March  to 15 April 15).

People used to plan according to past experience and I think that this drastic variation (from more than 30 days to 8) is not helping.
I will suggest to extend for even 10 days.

Kind Regards.

Allow me to reply instead.

The notice was published on the web site on 22 March, as it says, but there was a delay before the notice was sent in email.  I take responsibility for the delay, so please don’t blame NomCom.  The underlying reasons for the delay involved changes to the nomination form (which has different requirements from last year), uncertainty about whether or not self-nominations were allowed (no, in accordance with the bylaws, but different from last year), and confusion regarding the timeline.
