Perhaps I missed it… What is the procedure for those not on the board to change the constitution of the appeal committee?

As to the board, your advice is absolutely correct… People should seek to get new board members. Unfortunately, the nominating committee has a tendency to present a less than
diverse slate of candidates, in one case going so far as to appoint a known criminal to the board unopposed.

Also agreed… I think that the regionality requirements in the board election process have done nothing but harm to AFRINIC and the AFRINIC community.

Well… That’s the theory anyway. I’m not sure it actually works as advertised.
