If you are interested in running for an SC position, or know someone who might be a good candidate, please send the nomination to nominations at nanog.org. More details are below.
This is a very important time in the evolution of NANOG, and the SC members elected this fall will have a great opportunity to help represent the community and shape our future.
For the SC,

> The current SC members whose terms are expiring are Patrick Gilmore, Joe Provo, and Robert Seastrom. Joe is finishing his second consecutive term, so per the charter, cannot be considered for reelection until October 2011.
> 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 a Steering Committee member, please consult the NANOG charter or contact someone who is already serving and ask them directly.
