[NANOG-announce] Call for Nominations for NANOG Steering Committee 2008/9

Hello everyone,

Elections for three of the six elected positions on the NANOG Steering
Committee will be held in October 2008. The currently-serving Steering
Committee members whose terms are expiring are Joe Provo, Randy Bush and
Philip Smith. Randy and Philip have also served two consecutive terms
so, as per the charter, they cannot be considered for re-election until
October 2009.

The NANOG Steering Committee works closely with Merit to promote,
support and improve NANOG. The Steering Committee is responsible for the
selection of the Program Committee and the Mailing List Committee, and
is the community's instrument for ensuring that NANOG as an organisation
remains open, relevant and useful.

If you care about NANOG as a forum, and think you would like to take a
turn at volunteering your time to help make it better, please consider
either volunteering yourself or nominating someone else.

For more information about the role of the Steering Committee, or to
find out more about what's involved in being an Steering Committee
member, please consult the NANOG charter or contact someone who is
already serving and ask them directly.



You may nominate someone else, or yourself. There is no limit to the
number of nominations that may be submitted by a single person.
Individual nominees will be contacted directly to confirm that they are
willing to accept the nomination, and so that they can supply a
biography for the NANOG web page.

To submit a nomination, send the nominee's full name and contact details
to nominations@nanog.org.

The candidates will be given an opportunity to make brief comments
and/or accept questions from the community at the NANOG44 Community
Meeting, Sunday, October 12th, beginning at 5:30 PM, PDT.
