Dear Colleagues,

This year, AfriNIC will run several Elections and according to our usual 
process, these elections must be supervised by a Nomination & Election 
committee appointed by the board. The committee should be composed as 

o 1 or 2 Members appointed by the board (from a non-open seat)
o 2 or 3 Volunteers appointed from the community (from a different 
  sub-regions than the opened Board seat's).

To fill these positions, AfriNIC is seeking three volunteers to serve 
as members of the 2011 Nomination and Election committee. 

The NomCom membership is a voluntary position whose responsibilities 

* Conduct, moderate and coordinate the elections procedures and processes 
  for all the elections planned in 2011: Board, Policy WG Chairs and ASO-AC.
* Calling for Nominations for the elections
* Evaluate the Candidates
* Propose the final list of nominees before the elections
* Collect and evaluate comments received from the community on the nominees
* Supervise the counting of the votes
* Announce the final results of the votes

The Nomination Committee members will choose a Chair among themselves who 
will be the focal point between them (the committee), the AfriNIC community 
and the Bard where needed. AfriNIC staff will be made available to support 
the Nomination Committee in their work (compiling of nominations, compiling 
of comments, mailing list, web site update for elections, communication with 
nominees etc.,).

The Nomcom volunteers are expected to be:

* Neutral - Have no interest in the results of the elections -
* Not intend to for any open seat.
* A trusted member of the AfriNIC community.
* Willing to serve as a member in the Nomination committee and do their best to
  fulfill their responsibilities.

If you are interested in serving in this position, please send an expression of
interest, including a short biography by email to: members-contact at afrinic.net.
