Mechanics of Nomination:
Nominations may be made by selecting the Nominate link at the top of the
NomCom 2018 home page, or by visiting the following URL:
Note: Nominations made using the web tool require an ietf.org datatracker
account. You can create a datatracker ietf.org account if you don't have one
already by visiting the following URL:
If you are unable to use the web form, nominations may instead be made by
email to nomcom-18 at ietf dot org. If using email, please include the word
"Nominate" in the Subject and indicate in the email who is being nominated,
their email address (to confirm acceptance of the nomination), and the
position for which you are making the nomination. If you are nominating
someone other than yourself, please tell us if we may tell the nominee that
you were the one who made the nomination. If you wish to nominate someone via
email for more than one position, please use separate emails to do so.
Self-nomination is welcome!
Willing nominees will be asked to fill out a questionnaire specific to the
position for which they are nominated. The questionnaires will have a
submission deadline of December 5, 2018.
NomCom 2018-19 will follow the policy for "Open Disclosure of Willing
Nominees" described in BCP 10/RFC 7437. As stated in RFC 7437: "The list of
nominees willing to be considered for positions under review in the current
NomCom cycle is not confidential". Willing nominees for each position will be
listed in a publicly accessible way, e.g., anyone with a datatracker account
may access the lists. Additionally, the nomination form asks if we may share
your own name with the nominee. In all other ways, the confidentiality
requirements of BCP 10 remain in effect. All feedback and all NomCom
deliberations will remain confidential and will not be disclosed.
There is a field on the form you can mark in order to allow the NomCom to
tell the nominee that you were the one who made the nomination. This defaults
to “no” - so if you don't mark the field we won’t tell.
In order to ensure time to collect sufficient community feedback about each
of the willing nominees, nominations must be received by the NomCom on or
before November 28, 2018.
