during the December time frame.  The Constitution and Bylaws Committee is
responsible for gathering the nominees and running the elections.  The
Committee is soliciting nominations via email (each nomination must be
seconded) and will be compiled and posted on the ESIP Federation wiki.  The
ballot will be placed before the Assembly for an electronic vote during the
latter half of December and conclude just prior to the ESIP Federation
meeting.  Election results will be announced at the ESIP Federation Business
Meeting on 5 January 2011. New officers and committee chairs will take
