Wow - I just checked this as well and the boxes I had filled on the 25th are all empty. :-(

Any way to find them in previous versions, because I cannot remember what I wrote.
Warm regards,

  Hi Max 
  I just happened to go to the candidates information and I have noticed that someone has in-advertantly written over my  section on "intrests and plans regarding development of IRP"  It should be pretty clear, if you take a look at it, that it is not me. I am at work now now and  need to find and upload my info when I get home. So please await for me to do this.

  I was concerned that this may happen.. It may be useful to check the contents of the others as well

  Hi everybody

  I am really happy so many of you decided to run as candidate for the steering committee. Some of you still haven't filled our your candidate profile and we know there are a couple of really good candidates who still need to work out how to participate in the steering committee with their institutions - thus we decided to extend the nomination and candidate profile completion period till monday evening.

    Dear IRPers

    As you know, we are currently in the process of electing a new steering committee, from which a new chair will be elected.  A lot of interest has been expressed over the past few weeks which is great.  We?d like to keep the nominations open for one more week until Wednesday 25th November at 23.00 GMT so that we can get a good range of candidates.  We?ll be electing 3 candidates from each stakeholder group (civil society, academia, governmental institutions, and business), making a total of 12 in the steering committee. 

    We really need more candidates in the business and governmental groups, and a more diverse range of candidates in terms of geography (especially Asia, Africa, Pacific, Latin America) and gender.  Please feel free to nominate yourself or other people by sending me an email.

    All nominees need to accept or reject their nomination by Friday 27th November at 23.00 GMT by sending an email to me or to the list.  If you accept the nomination, you will need to fill in your short profile and reasons for running on the g-doc.  If you don?t fill in your details by Friday 27th, we?ll assume that you?re no longer available for the election. I copy what we our current definition of the steering committee role is at the bottom of this email (the whole doc is on the website also). Note that the steering committee can of course amend the role description.

    The elections will start on Tuesday 1st December at 12.00 GMT.  We?ll be using the e-voting system Derrick Cogburn kindly setup for the Internet Governance Caucus. Everyone on the IRP list will receive instructions about how to vote. Rudi, Lisa, Marianne and myself have written up a text defining the election procedure. Here it is  

    You will have 2 weeks to vote, and elections will close at 12.00 GMT on Tuesday 15th December.  We?ll announce the results as soon as possible after that.

    As I?m running for the steering committee, we?re looking into appointing an independent election officer to manage this process.  If you?re not running, please consider volunteering for this role ? it won?t take up much of your time. (Coordinate with Derrick to setup the system (2-3 hours) and checking and announcing the results (1 hour))

    Looking forward to your nominations and discussions
