There was a call for nominations from the RIPE NCC service region to fill one vacant seat on the Number Resource Organization Number Council (NRO NC).
Filiz Yilmaz was elected to the seat at a plenary session of the RIPE 67 Meeting on 18 October 2013. The election was to fill the seat being vacated by Hans Petter Holen, who was elected to a three-year term on the NRO NC that began on 1 January 2011.
The NRO NC was established in October 2004 under a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). The NRO NC is made up of three individuals from each of the five RIR's service regions. Of these three seats, two positions are filled by the election of nominees from each RIR's service region. These two members of the NRO NC act as individuals and do not represent an RIR or act as representatives of any organisation. One seat is currently filled by Filiz Yilmaz and the other by Dmitry Kohmanyuk.
The remaining position is filled by each RIR's Executive Council (EC). This individual acts as a representative for the RIR, reporting regularly to their EC. For the RIPE NCC, Wilfried Woeber currently holds this position.
