The African Network Information Centre (AFRINIC) Board makes appointments to its various bodies from time to time. In October 2018, the Board called for volunteers who wish to be considered for appointment by the Board to various AFRINIC bodies. Just recently, a reminder was sent out by AFRINIC.
The calls for volunteers for consideration were for appointment to the following bodies:

More information is available here. One of the three AFRINIC representatives in the NRO NC is appointed by the AFRINIC Board, and the Board intends to appoint one community volunteer for a one-year term, from 1 January 2019 to 31 December 2019.
- Governance Committee. The AFRINIC Governance Committee advises the AFRINIC Board, AFRINIC Membership and the community on matters of corporate governance. More information is available here. Two of the five voting members of the Governance Committee are appointed by the Board, and one of those seats has a term that expires on 31 December 2018. The Board intends to fill the seat by appointing a community volunteer for a two-year term from 1 January 2019 to 31 December 2020.
