Russ,

Isn't the "advisor" the "Past Chair" in the context of that
sentence?   Note that "comprises at least a Chair, 10 voting
volunteers, 3 liaisons, and an advisor" comes straight out of
3777, where it is the first paragraph of item 3 of Section 4.

To avoid making the text ambiguous, confusing, or overly
sensitive to things that might change as other things evolve,
would it to be appropriate to say:

	The nominating committee is comprised of a Chair, ten
	voting volunteers, the immediate past nominating
	committee Chair in an advisory capacity, plus liaisons
	and optional additional advisor(s) as described in
	Section 4 of RFC 3777.

best,
