APNIC Executive Council elections

The APNIC Executive Council (EC) serves as the governing board of APNIC, as defined in the APNIC Bylaws.

Defined by the APNIC By-Laws, the main functions of the EC are to act on behalf of the members while guiding the actions and decisions of the APNIC Secretariat. Meeting quarterly in person, the members of the EC establish the basis for the APNIC budget, consider broad Internet policy issues in order to ensure that APNIC’s policies and strategies respond to the constantly changing Internet environment, and ratify for implementation the decisions made at the Annual General Meetings (AGM).

We strongly encourage all APNIC members to participate in the EC election process. To ensure a fair and transparent process for EC elections, there are rules governing how member organizations can participate. It is important that you review this information carefully to ensure you are ready to have a say in these elections.
