Call for Volunteers - 2021 IX-Denver Board Election


IX-Denver will be holding an election at our February 2021 members meeting. The purpose of this election will be selecting three board members for one year terms (2021) and four board members for two year terms (2021-2022). To ensure that IX-Denver has the best possible leadership, we are now calling for volunteers who are willing and able to serve our members as Directors.

Seven board seats are up for election in 2021

You can view all of the current board members here:

We are seeking volunteers and nominations to fill these seven open board seats. To be considered; please send: Name, email, and a brief biography to


As an all volunteer organization, IX-Denver relies heavily on its Board of Directors.

Some of the various tasks performed by current board members include:

  • Financial planning and bookkeeping

  • Setting strategic direction for the organization based on member input

  • Providing technical leadership to the organization based on industry best practices

  • Proposing and conducting configuration changes, upgrades, new installs, etc.

  • Developing new and existing software tools

  • Configuring member ports, route server sessions, etc.

  • Communicating with members directly and via mailing lists

  • Seeking out new members and partners and bringing them on-board

  • Evangelizing the use of peering

  • Website and social media updates

  • Event planning and execution

  • Accounts payable and accounts receivable

  • Leading other volunteers

Not all members take on all of these tasks and this is not a comprehensive list. You will need to commit at least 10 hours per month to this position (2-4 hours per week), including monthly online board meetings. Twice a year we meet in person (once that is practical again) for about a half a day.

Folks who live in Colorado and have Internet technology related experience are preferred. Feel free to share this call with those you think are a great fit.
