Assigning a proxy

Assigning a proxy to vote on your behalf

An APNIC Member is entitled to attend and vote at an APNIC conference. If you do not plan to attend the conference, you may appoint a person to attend and vote on your behalf as your proxy. Only a Corporate Contact of the Member organization may appoint a proxy to vote on their behalf at an APNIC election. The proxy need not be a Member of APNIC, but the appointed proxy holder must be registered as an attendee at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) and can only vote on site during the APNIC conference.

Appointment as a proxy differs from being assigned voting rights. A proxy appointment is valid only for a single election. Assigned voting rights remain in place until they are changed or removed by the Member’s Corporate Contact.

Proxy forms will be emailed to all Corporate Contacts at least two weeks before an election. If you have access to MyAPNIC, you can also appoint your proxy using the web form in MyAPNIC.

Proxy forms are accepted as soon as online voting is open, up until 48 hours before the on-site election.

When is the proxy appointment valid?

APNIC will validate the information in the proxy form. The proxy appointment is valid only when confirmed by the APNIC Secretariat. Confirmation emails are sent to the appointed proxy and the Corporate Contact. The appointed proxy is required to present personal identification when collecting their ballot paper.
