ISOC is looking for 3 people to join the PIR Board

The Internet Society (ISOC) seeks nominations of highly qualified individuals to serve on the Board of Directors of the Public Interest
Registry (PIR) for the period 2008-2010. PIR was created by the Internet Society to manage the .ORG domain. The Internet Society
seeks to fill three open seats on the PIR board. The Board meets in person 3-4 times per year. The time commitment is approximately 14-18 full days per year plus additional phone calls and e-mail.


The priority skills are as follows:

* General business acumen with either significant entrepreneurial, non-profit and/or marketing (not sales) skills
* Known as a contributor in ICANN – Understanding and engagement in the retail domain name space (e.g. a Pindar equivalent)

Additional useful skills are:

* Long term strategic thinker
* Financial acumen; PIR is a $40M/yr. enterprise
* Familiarity with the non-commercial enterprise world
* Geographical diversity

Please also note that without current exposure/involvement with the highly volatile name space business arena, it will take board member 6-12 months to get up-to-speed. With two new members next year, it will be crucial to make sure at least one new member is actively engaged in the name space arena.
