NANOG’s property, affairs, and business are managed and controlled by members who make up our Board of Directors (BoD), which facilitates communications between the NANOG community and other like-minded organizations. Elected members of the BoD are also responsible for appointing all members of NANOG’s committees, and the Executive Director.

If you are interested in serving as a member of the NANOG BoD, or if you know of someone who would be a good candidate, please consider running for a position, or nominating another individual by completing a nomination form starting August 26, 2019.
