InternetNZ announces new councillors and InternetNZ Fellow
Posted on 9-Jul-2013 10:51. | Tags Filed under: News.

InternetNZ (Internet New Zealand Inc) has announced official results in this year's InternetNZ Council elections and the appointment of a new InternetNZ Fellow.

Election results were announced at InternetNZ’s Annual General Meeting last night. There were eight nominations for four vacancies on Council. Amber Craig and Richard Wood have been elected as Councillors. Lance Wiggs and Neil James have been re-elected as Councillors. Each will serve a three year term on Council.

InternetNZ President Frank March says an excellent group of people were nominated this year, and congratulates the successful candidates.

The Annual General Meeting also confirmed Don Stokes as new InternetNZ Fellow.

InternetNZ Fellowships recognise members of the Internet industry who have made an outstanding contribution to the development of the Internet in New Zealand or the Society.

March says Stokes has been involved with the Internet in New Zealand since it first appeared, making largely unseen and highly technical contributions to its security and stability.

In the early 1990s, Don helped set up the network infrastructure for the national Universities network and has since been involved in many large scale technical architecture deployments.

He has been associated with InternetNZ since its inception, providing considerable input on policy and technical matters, most notably through his membership of the ‘Hine Commission’, which gave rise the .nz Shared Registry System.

Over the last ten years Don has been active in the technical networking community. His contributions have always been of a substantial and important nature, including implementing DNS infrastructure for .nz Registry Services for New Zealand’s Top Level Domain operations.
