[rpd] AFRINIC Board Elections - 2014: Call for Nominations

You are the guys we are looking for. The Nomination Committee CANNOT manufacture names unless YOU volunteer.  As Mark says, getting volunteers to do offer their time, effort and knowledge practically for free has proved to be very difficult in Africa.

And so I wish you and others would have come out and responded to the call for board members that I believe is widely circulated.  I tend to agree that AfriNIC board needs "new" blood, but "old" blood is often forced to stay on due to non or poor response to the call for volunteers.

And in any case, the community is free to vote out the old blood when the vote is called :-)

 Me Just curious!
 Aren't some of the nominated folks already
 or were  members of the board in the recent past....the
 names look familiar ....
 Should some of us assume that there is no new blood in some
 of these regions who can be nominated or there is less
 awareness in the community thus we keep seeing the same
 names over and over most of the time? 
 Consequent to the call for nominations and subsequent
 evaluation of
 nominees by the Nominations Committee (NomCom), we are
 pleased to
 announce the following final slate of candidates for the
 seats on the AFRINIC Board:
