    CIRA 2016 Board Elections

    The 2016 CIRA Board Elections "Show of Support" phase has started today. As I'm running for the single member selected board seat, I'd appreciate your show of support and later your vote. If you have a .CA domain and are a CIRA member you should have received your instructions for voting earlier today.

    I'm running in order to represent the domain industry better on the board - there are only few board members with actual industry experience.

    Thank you.

    Here's what you need to do to vote - taken from my campaign site.

    What do you need to do in order to vote in the CIRA Election?

    1. Check if you are a CIRA member – search by email address. You need to be eligible to have a .CA domain in order to become a CIRA member.
    2. If you are a member, go to step 8)
    3. If you are not a member – apply to become a member. You can only be a member once, either for yourself or as a representative for a company.
    4. Submit your application. You will need a piece of scanned ID (or business information), your domain name and some contact information. It’s easier to apply for a personal membership then as a business representative.
    5. You will receive a confirmation email from CIRA that your application was received.
    6. You should receive an approval email if there were no issues with your application.
    7. The voter’s list for the 2016 CIRA Board Elections closes on September 1st, 2016, so you will need to become a member before that in order to vote in this year’s election.
    8. On August 25th, 2016 (or before September 2nd if you just signed up) you should have received a “Show of Support” email from CIRA asking you to pick a candidate to support for the member elected slate. How you show support is described here.
    9. If you do not receive the email by September 2nd, contact election (at) cira.ca to get them to resend it.
    10. Online voting is open from 3 p.m. ET on September 22 until 3 p.m. ET on September 29, 2016. You should receive your voting access information at the beginning of this period.

    Thank you to all of those who supported me. I've moved on to the actual election and am in the final member slate with 5 other members competing for the single seat.

    I'll also be attending Canadians Connected (CIRA AGM) in Toronto on September 22nd for those of you who want to meet up.
