Nominations for the PIR Advisory Council


The Advisory Council helps PIR in its mission to create more and stronger mission-driven organizations and provides input and recommendations on issues affecting the broader .ORG Community, including noncommercial Internet users, nonprofits, and mission-driven organizations.

PIR Advisory Council members also reflect a diversity of subject matter interests, including, but not limited to, educational, artistic, cultural, human rights, political, religious, and scientific sectors. No two members of the Council will be from the same organization, and PIR will work toward the selection of a globally diverse representation of small, medium, and large organizations.

All Council member seats are for terms of one to three years in accordance with the PIR Advisory Council Charter. The positions are voluntary but do include funded travel to PIR’s Reston, VA headquarters for one of the four regularly scheduled meetings throughout the year. New members must have demonstrated commitment to the responsible, ethical, and effective use of the Internet and desire to support the .ORG Community. Strong English communications skills are preferred as the Council will convene and communicate in English.

The call for PIR Advisory Council applications will be open from June 10, 2024 to September 6, 2024. Interested individuals can nominate themselves or other candidates using the form linked below. Expressions of interest and qualifications, one to three references, and biographical information highlighting relevant experience, expertise, and contact information must be submitted in order to be considered.

New members will be notified of their acceptance by November 21, 2024.
