IV. Review Call for Candidates for 2012 PIR Board of Directors
Lynn noted that in the past the excom has acted as a nominations committee for positions on the PIR board and prepares a slate for approval by the full board.  She said that the call for nominations was prepared by ISOC staff for review by the excom and the PIR board. She then reviewed the terms of the current PIR board members.

The excom did not have any comments on the draft call for nominees.  Lynn said she would forward the call to the PIR board for their review.
