A few comments:

6.4 Elections:

The word NANOG in the first line is in the wrong place.

48 hours seems awfully short as a voting period.  The previous election 
was an entire week.

7.1.2 Mailing List Administration:

It might be better to spell out Mailing List, rather than abbreviating it 
"ML."  Also, while amending it, would it make sense to pluralize "list," 
to allow for the formation of other lists in the future?

There's a consistency issue with the Mailing List Committee appointment 
process versus the Program Committee appointment process.  The amendments 
as written have the Mailing List Committee appointed at the start of the 
fall meeting, by the outgoing Steering Committee right before the 
election.  The Program Committee amendment has the Program Committee 
appointed by the incoming Steering Committee.  Is this intentional?

6.4.4 Dual Program Committee/Steering Committee Membership Prohibited:

Remove the "s" from the word "Resigns."
