NANOG Program Committee nominations needed

Nominations for the NANOG Program Committee are still open.

There are eight terms ending this year:

     Joe Abley
     Kevin Epperson
     Steve Feldman
     Hank Kilmer
     Christopher Morrow
     David O'Leary
     Ted Seely
     Bill Woodcock

(All eight are eligible for another term, under the charter.)

** Procedure **

To nominate yourself or someone else, please send mail to with the following, no later than Wednesday,
October 11:

- Your name
- Nominee's name (if not you)
- Nominee's email address
- Nominee's phone number
- Reasons why you believe the nominee is qualified to
    serve on the Program Committee.

Merit will contact each of the nominees to verify interest and
possibly request additional information.

The Steering Committee, with input from the current Program Committee,
will then select the person to fill the position.

** Eligibility **

The charter states:

    "To be eligible to be appointed as a member of the Program
    Committee, an individual must have attended one NANOG meeting
    within the prior calendar year (12 months). "

** Duties **

Again quoting the charter:

    "The Program Committee is responsible for motivating/soliciting
    people to submit interesting talks, selecting the submissions which
    seem most appropriate (with some attention to presentation skills),
    and following up with speakers after acceptances to ensure that
    presentations are completed in time, with ample warning of potential
    problems with the presentation."

    "Each member of the Program Committee must review all presentations
    submitted for each meeting. The Chair may excuse a member from
    one meeting's review cycle due to extenuating circumstances, but
    if a member misses two meetings in a row, he or she may be removed
    from the committee."

** Length of term **

This position is for the remainder of a two year term, which began after
the Fall 2005 meeting, and ends with the Fall 2007 meeting.

If you have any further questions, please post to the nanog-futures list,
or contact the Steering Committee at

         Steve Feldman, PC Chair
