When a nomination is received, the APNIC Secretariat will contact the nominee (by email) to accept or reject their nomination as a candidate for the NRO NC election. If a nominee is not contactable via email or does not respond, then their nomination will not be confirmed and they will not be eligible for election.
The nominee is invited to attend the election held during the APNIC conference. The travel cost for the nominee to attend the conference is not covered by APNIC. It is not necessary for nominees to attend the conference in order to stand for the election. However, those present have an opportunity to make a statement supporting their candidacy.
Nominees are listed on the conference website after APNIC confirms the nominee is able and willing to serve on the NRO NC. Nominees have the opportunity to submit a written statement in support of their nomination. This is published on the relevant conference website. In addition, others may express support for a nominee by completing and submitting another nomination.
