Announcement: September 16, 2009 - Nomcom 2009-10: FINAL Call for Nominations, Local Office hours, Nominee Questionnaires
From: Mary Barnes <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Hi all, This is the Final Call for Nominations - the nominations period ends in two days on Sept 18, 2009. We do not have a sufficient number of nominations for the following AD positions: APP, OPS, RAI and SEC In addition, we have not received responses from almost half of the nominees. I will be sending reminders for all the outstanding nominations. We need Community input and participation!!! We cannot properly execute the task of selecting the best candidates for these positions with so few accepted nominations. So, please consider making nominations for the open positions, in particular those for which we have so few nominations - it takes just a few minutes of your time. Right now, we just need the names/email addresses - we'll be soliciting feedback later. Also, please note that although draft-dawkins-nomcom-openlist-06 has been approved, the 2009-10 Nomcom is NOT operating under these new guidelines. As well as the reminder for the call for nominations, this email also serves as a reminder for: 2) Local Office Hours through Sept. 25, 2009. 3) Questionnaires due from Nominees on Sept. 25, 2009. Best Regards, Mary Barnes email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com ========================================================================= 1) Call for Nominations ------------------------ The nomination period ends in less than 2 days on Sept. 18th, 2009.
