I agree that diversity is important, and I would encourage the members to consider diversity when they elect Directors. Diversity is not the only consideration, and I would also urge the members to consider experience and skill. It may easily happen that multiple good candidates come from the same country or organisation, and the voting members should be free to choose how they balance diversity against other considerations.
My main goal in the current round of Bylaws changes is to make it very difficult for AFRINIC to be captured by a minority interest. The proposed limits of two Directors per organisation and two Directors per sub-region are more than sufficient to ensure that no one organisation or one sub-region has the majority of votes in the Board.
