NomCom 2010-2011: Call for Nominations extended to October 8

Willing Nominees, particularly for the Open IESG positions. Nominations
are welcome through October 8 at 1700 Pacific Time.
Please take a moment and review the Open List of Willing Nominees for
each position and determine if you wish to submit any additional names

Well, that is up to you in the community. Look at the list of
willing Nominees and make your own decision on whether to submit

job and should be returned, NomCom needs to consider multiple
nominees to be prepared in the event one or more candidates
is unable to serve come next March and to ensure we have
chosen the best candidate.
Q: Is this the last call for nominations?
A: This will be the last and final call for all open positions.
