There is an opening on the NANOG Mail List Administration Panel.  

According to the draft charter[1]:

    "... The NANOG list will be administered and minimally
    moderated by a panel selected by the Steering Committee."

Accordingly, the Steering Committee is soliciting nominations for
this open position, from now through 17:00 GMT Thursday, November
17, 2005.

** Procedure **

To volunteer yourself or nominate someone else, please send mail to
[email protected] with the following information, no later than

  - Nominee's email address
  - Nominee's phone number
  - Nominee's employer
  - Reasons why you believe the nominee is qualified to serve
    on the Mail List Panel.

A panel member will contact each of the nominees to verify interest
and possibly request additional information.

Once all nominations have been received, the Steering Committee, in
cooperation with the Mailing List Panel, will select the new member
from among the nominees.  The result will be announced on the
nanog-announce mailing list.

** Eligibility **

Anyone actively reading the [email protected] mailing list is
eligible.  A nominee may not be a member of the NANOG Program
Committee or the NANOG Steering Committee.

** Duties **

Basic duties include reading the mailing list and assisting with
keeping things on-topic.  The team also deals with abuse issues as
they arise.

discussion of this is being led by the NANOG Steering Committee.

If you have any questions, please post to the meta-discussion list,

Finally, on behalf of the Mailing List Panel and the Steering
Committee, we would like to thank the outgoing panel member, Steve
Gibbard, for his dedication to the mailing list and the reform
process as a whole.
