In 2017, Richards and Trotman made history by becoming the first Caribbean members of the ARIN advisory council, since the registry was founded on April 18, 1997.

Trotman says she is running again because there is still more work to be done.

Harrison, who is the chief technical officer and co-founder of Silicon Valley-based colocation services provider Colovore, will contest for a seat on the ARIN Board of Trustees.

On October 4, during ARIN’s public policy meeting in Vancouver, British Columbia, candidates will use the forum to address ARIN members.

Online voting opens then at 6 pm EDT and closes on October 12 at 6 pm. All terms will begin on January 1, 2019.

ARIN is one of five Internet registries worldwide that coordinate the distribution and administration of number resources. The registry serves the United States, Canada and several territories in the Caribbean.
