It is that time of year to consider elections for officers and committee
chairs for the ESIP Federation.  As has been done in past years,
nominations (each nomination must be seconded) will be collected via
email and compiled for the complete ballot.  The ballot will be placed
before the Assembly for an electronic vote during the month leading up
to the ESIP Federation meeting.  Election results will be announced at
the ESIP Federation Business Meeting on January 7, 2009.  New officers
and committee chairs will take office at the end of the ESIP Federation
meeting on January 8, 2009.
All officers, committee chairs and type representatives serve one-year
terms.  The President and Vice President are limited to two consecutive
terms.  In addition, the President and Vice President must come from
