Technical Summary

   The IETF Nominating Committee (NomCom) appoints candidates to several
   IETF leadership committees.  RFC8713 provides criteria for NomCom
   membership that attempt to ensure that NomCom volunteers are members
   of the loosely defined IETF community, by requiring in-person
   attendance in three of the past five in-person meetings.  This
   document updates RFC8713 by defining a new set of eligibility
   criteria from first principles, with consideration to the increased
   salience of remote attendance.
