Elections for three of the six elected positions on the NANOG Steering  
Committee will be held in October, 2010, for two-year terms ending in  
October, 2012.

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.


Per the charter, Steering Committee members must attend at least two  
of three NANOG meetings per year while in office.


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 at nanog.org.  The deadline for nominations is  
11:59 PM EDT on Monday, August 30.

The candidates will be given an opportunity to make brief comments and/ 
or accept questions from the community at the NANOG 50 Community  
Meeting on Sunday, October 3.
