Board of Trustees

2009 Board Election

Election Results

Letter from the ISOC Elections Committee

On behalf of the Elections Committee, we extend our appreciation and thanks to all of the candidates who stood for election for the Board of Trustees. ISOC is honoured to have such well-qualified candidates.

In the Chapter election, we had three candidates:

  • Franck Martin
  • Khaled Koubaa
  • Narelle Clark

63 out of the 82 chapters voted, which is 77%.

Khaled Koubaa, who received the highest number of the votes, has been elected for a three year term.

In the Organizational Member election, we initially had five candidates:

  • David Appasamy
  • Allen Miller
  • Philip Smith
  • Jonathan Zittrain
  • Guanghao Li

Allen Miller withdrew during the election. Thus, the votes in favour of Allen Miller were not counted. 54 of the 92 Organizational Members, or 59%, voted. The ballot cast was weighted by the class of membership.

Philip Smith and Jonathan Zittrain, receiving the largest weighted ballot counts, have been elected for three year terms.

Using the process documented in RFC 3677, the IAB has selected Eric Burger as the IETF appointee to the ISOC board.

As defined in the timetable there is a challenge period in which issues may be raised concerning the election. This closes 25 May at midnight UTC, and the resulting board is seated in the ISOC Board Meeting in Stockholm on 24 July.

The turnout in this case has been higher in the chapter election than in recent years, and stable for the organizational membership. The election itself conducted with the highest of standards and the elections committee is satisified with the electronic voting system that was used this year.

Respectfully submitted,

Patrick Vande Walle, chair
