Approved SSAC reappointments


Whereas, Article XI, Section 2, Subsection 2 of the Bylaws governs the Security and Stability Advisory Committee (SSAC).

The Bylaws impose three-year terms for SSAC members, require staggering of terms, and obligate the SSAC chair to recommend the reappointment of all current SSAC members to full or partial terms to implement the Bylaws revisions.

Whereas, in July 2011 the SSAC Membership Committee initiated an annual review of SSAC members whose terms are ending 31 December 2011 and submitted to the SSAC its recommendations for reappointments.

Whereas, on 7 September 2011, the SSAC members voted to approve the reappointments.

Resolved (2011.10.28.03), the Board accepts the recommendation of the SSAC and reappoints the following SSAC members to three-year terms beginning 1 January 2012 and ending 31 December 2014: KC Claffy, Steve Crocker, Rodney Joffe, Mark Kosters, Russ Mundy, Mark Seiden, Bruce Tonkin, Stefano Trumpy and Paul Vixie.
