management of the Internet Society, fundraising, and participation
in 3 physical Board meetings plus 3 conference-call meetings per

   appropriate level of time to activities associated with the

   goals as a Trustee and motivation to serve as a Trustee.

6. Any further information that is relevant to the work of the IAB
   in considering your nomination.

Time Commitment

and committee business. Trustees are also expected to allocate some time 
to attend and prepare for meetings. The ISOC Board of Trustees holds three
physical meetings and two 2-hour teleconference meetings annually.

The following procedures will be used by the IAB in managing this

- The candidate's name will be published, with all other
  candidate names, at the close of the nominations period
