Re: FYI: TOC Election (Jan 2019)

I'm a little confused about the nomination process. In particular, I can't see where in the charter it describes who many nominate candidates for the TOC. In section 6(e)(ii) it says:
Each individual (entity or member) eligible to nominate a TOC member may nominate up to two (2) technical representatives, (from vendors, end users or any other fields), at most one of which may be from their respective company. The nominee(s) must agree to participate prior to being added to the nomination list.
But I cannot see where in the doc it is actually defines who is eligible to nominate a TOC member. (Our implementation is that it is voting members of the governing board who are permitted to nominate, but why wouldn't the charter say that if that's the intent?) I am trying to recall our chartering discussions, and I seem to recall that one of the advantages of any level of membership was that a member could nominate for the TOC; is that incorrect? If so, would you mind pointing me to the document that defines the nomination process?
Somewhat similarly: I think it will also be helpful to get clarity about the origins of each member, to clearly delineate the 6 GB-determined members from the 2 TOC-determined members from the 1 end user-determined member. Which is really a polite way of me saying that between the initial TOC conditions, the resignations, etc., I have lost track of who's who. ;)
