Nomcom 2007-8: Nominations Deadline Extended to Sep 17, 2007

Subject: Nomcom 2007-8: Nominations Deadline Extended to Sep 17, 2007

Folks,

Many of you responded well to the reminder calls for nominations sent recently.
There was also an up-tick in the nominations acceptances as well (in some
cases). The nomcom appreciates the community's response very much.

However, we are still short in a few areas; at the moment, we have the
following numbers of nominations: 3 4 4 6 6 10 12 21 44 (some of these folks
have already rejected the nominations; I haven't had the time to update the
numbers yet).

The numbers on acceptances are still *very* low; in 3 (or may be 4) areas, we
have only ONE candidate so far.

In the discussions on this topic, it was argued that folks may be still
returning from their summer vacations. Some candidates have hinted that it may
take some more time to get the necessary approvals. Keeping those considerations
in mind, I am extending the nominations deadline to Sep 17, 2007 AOE. Candidates
are requested to consider the chance to serve the IETF and accept the
nominations. The questionnaires are now due Sep 24, 2007 AOE.

Here is the link to nominate: https://tools.ietf.org/group/nomcom/07/nominate
You may also send nominations or comments via email to nomcom07 at ietf.org or
ldondeti at qualcomm.com.


thanks,
