committee.  Nominations  (in  the form of agreed nominations, suggestions or
volunteers) are to include the name of  the  nominated  individual,  contact

it would be preferred  if  nominations  could  reach  the  committee  by  11

The committee will confirm with the candidate their willingness to stand for 
election  as  a  nominated  candidate  if so selected. Nominees will also be 
requested to provide the committee with further  personal  details  (in  the 
format  of  a  curriculum  vitae) as they relate to the selection guidelines 
that are to be applied by the committee, and  provide  to  the  committee  a 
statement  indicating their willingness and ability to devote an appropriate
level of time to activities associated with the position of Trustee  of  the
Internet Society. 

It is intended that the committee's selection process will result in no less 
than  7,  and up to 10 candidates for election as nominated candidates. This 
list will be passed to the Elections Committee on 4 January 1993, as well as 
informing voting members of the society of the selected nominations. 

Additional candidates for election to the Board of Trustees may be nominated 
by membership petition, filed with the Chair of the Nominating Committee  no
later than than 1 March 1993. (A petition for the 1993 election will require 
the  signatures  of  fifty  voting  ISOC  members.)  Specific details of the 
petition  process  will  be  included  in  the  announcement  of   nominated 
candidates  on  4  January  1993.  Following  the  closure  of  the petition 
period,ballots listing nominated and petitioned candidates  will  be  mailed 
out  to ISOC voting members on 31 March 1993 and the election date is set to
be 31 May 1993.
