Excerpts from the RIPE NCC Articles of Association:

Article 8.2 The Executive Board of the Association shall consist of at
least three and at most five natural persons. They shall be members of
the Board in a personal capacity and do not have to be Members of the
Association. Employees of the Association cannot be appointed members of
the Executive Board.

Article 9.1 The members of the Executive Board shall be appointed by the
General Meeting from a list of nominees to be drawn up by the Members.

A nomination for the appointment of a member of the Executive Board
shall need the written support of at least five Members and shall be
submitted no later than three weeks before the General Meeting. If three
weeks before the General Meeting the number of candidates nominated for
appointment as referred to above does not exceed the number of
vacancies, the Executive Board shall have to nominate one or more
candidates for appointment so that the total number of proposed
candidates shall exceed the number of Executive Board members to be
appointed by the General Meeting.

Article 9.2 If the members or the Executive Board should fail to draw up
a list of nominees within three months after the vacancy has occurred,
the General Meeting may appoint a member of the Executive Board at its
own discretion.
