Looking for other ways to be an active participant in CIRA’s governance without joining the board or nomination committee? Find out below.

Endorse a member nominee

Is there a nominee that stands out as more qualified to advance to the final election ballot? Endorse them!

For a member nominee to become a final candidate on the members’ slate of the election ballot, they must receive at least 20 shows of support from other members. Only CIRA members can endorse a member nominee during the show of support period, starting on August 30, 2023 at 2 p.m. ET.

To participate, each eligible member will receive an email on August 30 containing a link to the voting site and a unique voter ID and PIN number to login.

Participate in the campaign forum

To help members make an informed decision when electing directors, we open the campaign forum—an online platform that facilitates discussions between candidates and members and provides a channel for candidates to promote their candidacy.

Starting on September 20, get to know the final candidates better by engaging in discussions about key points in their election statements, their knowledge of the internet industry and related issues, their skills and experience, and why they are the best candidate to represent CIRA.

Cast your vote to elect the directors

CIRA members decide who will lead CIRA by voting for the candidates best qualified for the job.

Members will have the opportunity to vote for three nomination committee candidates and one member candidate. The voting period begins on September 27, 2023 at 2 p.m. ET and members have seven days to cast their vote.

To participate, each eligible member  will receive an email on September 27 containing a link to the voting site and a unique voter ID and PIN number to login.
