Nomcom 2010-11: Final Call for Volunteers
Hi Folks,

THIS IS IT!  This is the final call for volunteers for the 2010-11
Nomcom.  You may volunteer until 17:00 PDT (24:00 UTC) this Thursday, July
8, 2010.

To date, we have 80 volunteers for this year's NomCom.  The current list
(i.e., the Third Listing) of the 80 volunteers may be found at: 

If you have volunteered and your name does not appear on the above list
or have not heard from me otherwise, please contact me at ASAP.

However, we could still use more volunteers. The more volunteers, the
better chance we have of choosing a random yet representative cross
section of the IETF population.  I would like to see a pool of at least
90-100, so another 10-20 more volunteers by Thursday would be great!  

As a reminder, volunteers must have attended 3 of the past 5 IETF
meetings - per RFC 3777, which means any 3 of the following meetings:
IETF-73, IETF-74, IETF-75, IETF-76 and IETF-77.  If you qualify, and are
willing to forgo appointment to any of the positions for which the
nominating committee is responsible, please volunteer.  

The primary activity for this NomCom will begin just prior to IETF-78 in
Maastricht and should be completed in early January 2011.  The NomCom will
be collecting requirements from the community, as well as talking to
candidates and to community members about candidates. There will be weekly
conference calls to ensure progress. Thus, being a NomCom member does
require some time commitment.  While, there is no requirement in RFC 3777
that a participant attend IETF meetings while serving on NomCom, folks
should consider that during the IETF meetings, folks that do not attend
would be expected to remotely participate during the day in the time zones
of the meeting locations - Maastricht the end of July and Beijing in
The list of people and posts whose terms end with the March 2011 IETF
meeting, and thus the positions for which the nominating committee is
responsible, are summarized in the initial announcement:

Please volunteer by sending an email before 17:00 PDT (24:00 UTC) July 8,
2010 as follows:
