Dear members, This is a final reminder that there will be an election for two seats at the RIPE NCC General Meeting on 15 May 2013. The closing date for nominations to the RIPE NCC Executive Board is 24 April at 23:59 (UTC). Nominees need five nominations/support mails in order to be confirmed candidates. If there are fewer than three candidates for the election by 24 April, the RIPE NCC Executive Board will nominate a third candidate to ensure that more candidates than open seats are available to choose from, as proscribed by the Articles of Association. The method of choosing a candidate is at the Board's discretion. A list of the current nominees and instructions on how to nominate or support a candidate are available at: http://www.ripe.net/lir-services/ncc/gm/may-2013/nominations-support Register to Attend the General Meeting -------------------------------------- https://www.ripe.net/lir-services/ncc/gm/may-2013/registration Electronic Voting ----------------- Members were mailed invitations to register for electronic voting in February and March.
