                  draft-moonesamy-nomcom-selection-00

Abstract

   RFC 3777 specifies the process by which members of the Internet
   Architecture Board, Internet Engineering Steering Group and IETF
   Administrative Oversight Committee are selected, confirmed, and
   recalled.

   This document updates RFC 3777 to increase the number of volunteers
   who are eligible to serve on NomCom and to increase the selection of
   volunteers having different primary affiliations.  It also makes some
   updates to include the IETF Administrative Oversight Committee.

1  Introduction

   RFC 3777 [RFC3777] specifies the process by which members of the
   Internet Architecture Board (IAB), Internet Engineering Steering
   Group (IESG) and IETF Administrative Oversight Committee (IOAC) are
   selected, confirmed, and recalled.  The Nominating Committee
   Selection is the process by which volunteers who will serve on the
   committee (NomCom) are recognized.  A random selection of volunteers
   is used to ensure that the selection is unbiased [RFC3797].

   One of the rules for eligibility to serve on NomCom is that
   volunteers must have attended at least three of the last five IETF
   meetings in order to volunteer.  Previously, a large number of
   meetings were held in North America.  There has been a change in the
   selection of meeting venues in 2012 as there is a willingness to
   consider locations outside North America.  Volunteers familiar with
   the IETF processes and procedures end up not being eligible to serve
   on NomCom if they cannot attend the third of the last five last IETF
   meetings.

   Over the last few years a small number of large sponsors for IETF
   participants have provided a disproportionate number of NomCom
   volunteers.  Since 2010 there has been several occurrences where two
   volunteers with the same primary affiliation were selected for the
   nominating committee.

   This document updates RFC 3777 [RFC3777] to increase the number of
   volunteers who are eligible to serve on NomCom and to increase the
