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). The three-year term of Filiz Yilmaz is set to end on 31 December 2019.
The election to fill this seat will take place at the RIPE 79 Meeting in Rotterdam in 14-18 October 2019.
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 Regional Internet Registries' (RIRs') 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 Nurani Nimpuno.
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, Hervé Clément currently holds this position.
