Internet-Draft        CCG Representative Procedures       4 January 2017

1.  Introduction

   The IANA IPR Community Agreement [1] was one of the many documents
   that was part of the IANA Stewardship Transition.  It calls for the
   creation of the Community Coordination Group (CCG) to provide
   guidance and advice to the IETF Trust regarding the stewardship of
   the IANA Intellectual Property, which is the IANA trademarks and the
   IANA domain names.

   The CCG is comprised of nine individuals, called the CCG
   Representatives.  The three operational communities (the Names
   Community, the Numbers Community, and the Protocol Parameters
   Community) each appoint three CCG Representatives.  Each operational
   community has the right to change any of its CCG Representatives upon
   written notice to the other operational communities and the IETF
   Trust.  An operational community may remove or replace its CCG
   Representatives at any time and in its sole discretion.  The means
   and procedures by which an operational community chooses to select,
   appoint, and remove its own CCG Representatives are determined solely
   by that operational community.

   Each Operational Community appoints one of its CCG Representatives as
   a co-chair of the CCG, and that co-chair is empowered to speak on
   behalf of its operational community regarding the IANA Intellectual
   property.  An Operational Community has the right to change its CCG
   co-chair upon written notice to the other operational communities and
   the IETF Trust.  An operational community may remove or replace its
   CCG co-chair at any time and in its sole discretion.

   This document outlines the procedures for the IETF to select,
   appoint, and remove the three CCG Representatives for the Protocol
   Parameter Community.  In addition, this document outlines the
   procedures for the selection of the co-chair among those CCG
   Representatives.

2.  Desirable Qualifications for CCG Representatives

   Candidates for the CCG Representative position for the Protocol
   Parameters Community should have a demonstrable involvement in the
   IETF and a solid understanding of the various ways that the IETF
   makes use of protocol parameter registries.  Candidates should be
   familiar with the ways that the IETF community depends upon the IANA
   trademarks and the IANA domain names.

   Candidates are expected to be able to call on others in the IETF
   community, as required, to ensure that the IETF Trust receives the
   highest quality advice available.
