Our timeline is followed as scheduled. The "Call for
Nominations" was closed on November 20th as planned. A complete list
of all the nominees was distributed to all the Nominating Committee members in
the evening of November 20th. All the nominees were contacted by
each committee member and if they accepted the nomination, a bio and statement were
collected.

Based on President Zhijia's charge, "The committee is to
make an effort to recruit as many as possible qualified candidates for
consideration for nomination and present to the President a list of nominees
for the five outgoing Board member positions. For the
Vice-President/President-Elect position, the committee is to make an effort to
prepare a slate of at least two and no more than three nominees," the
Nominating Committee made its recommendation of the slate to the Board for approval on December
20, 2010.

acceptance, bio and statement, number of nominators, and geographical
representation. The final slate is as the following:
