I've no doubt that this will prove counter-productive to the current topic, 
but nonetheless feel it essential to be accurate and precise:

IESG and IAB members are selected by members of a "nominating 
committee".  While formal approval involves some intricacies, the real 
authority lies with the NomCom.

NomCom members are selected from a random pool of IETF "members" -- the 
term "member" actually does not formally exist for IETF participants 
--  who offer their services (and satisfy some basic requirements for 
history of attendance at the IETF.)
