The AFRINIC Bylaw (Section 16) allows the Board to appoint up to six former AFRINIC chairpersons to the AFRINIC Council of Elders. Those who are eligible for membership to the Council of Elders should have served for at least one full term as an AFRINIC Chair.
The Members of the AFRINIC Council of Elders are:

Together they fulfil an advisory role and harness all their experience leading the organisation as former Chairs.
The Council of Elders was created by the new Bylaws adopted in January 2013.
