[rpd] Board Election 2017: Final Candidate Slate

Hi Ish,

I've held a position on NomCom probably more times than anyone else and
believe I can answer this question.

NomCom does not look for Citizens, it looks for Residents - that is -
people that live in the country or region.
There is no point in having a Citizen of (lets pick on) Mauritius who
now lives in the USA and has done for the past ten years, standing for a
position within AFRINIC.

On the other hand, it makes perfect sense for an American who now lives
and works in Mauritius as a permanent resident for the past ten years, 
who is involved within the community, standing for a position.

That is, NomCom looks for residents.

I am sure that AFRINIC will soon have all candidate profiles for view on
the AFRINIC Website, as is the normal practise. It will include their
application information (nominators - etc), Photo, CV/résumé and any
other information that the NomCom may have gathered about the candidates.
