I think you're thinking of the nomcom as an ongoing body, with
organizational memory. That's not how it's presently defined. Right now,
it's a body which is formed once each year to complete a specific task.
It does the task, and is immediately dissolved. It doesn't set policies
for future nomcoms, and next year's nomcom isn't comprised of people who
were on this year's nomcom. It's just a group of randomly-selected
volunteers who perform a defined task once. It produces a slate based
upon its judgment and its collective best interpretation of its defined
task. If you want to influence its work, volunteer.
