          - Developing the agenda
          - Posting proposals and information about the SIG to the mailing
          - Encouraging and facilitating discussion on the mailing list

      The nomination deadline is Monday, 24 August 2009.
      If there are any volunteers, elections to select the new Chair and
      Co-chair will be held in the NIR SIG meeting at APNIC 28 in Beijing,
      China, 25 - 28 August 2009.
      Candidates need to be present at the meeting to be eligible.
