Nomcom 2010-2011: Second Call for Volunteers
Hi all, 

This is the Second call for Volunteers for the 2010-11 nomcom.  We are
just about halfway through the volunteer period so if you are considering
volunteering please do so very soon. 

I am pleased to report that we have 29 volunteers thus far whose
qualifications have been confirmed by the secretariat. I have notified
each of these volunteers by email.  

If you volunteered before 08:00 PDT (15:00 UTC) on June 21 to serve as a
voting member and have not received a confirmation email from me, please
re-submit and bring to my attention right away!

However, we need many more volunteers.  You have until 17:00 PDT (24:00
UTC) on July 8, 2010 to volunteer for nomcom but it is much better if you
volunteer as early as possible.  The more volunteers, the better chance we
have of choosing a random yet representative cross section of the IETF

As a reminder, volunteers must have attended 3 of the past 5 IETF
meetings - per RFC 3777, which means 3 of the following meetings: IETF-73,
IETF-74, IETF-75, IETF-76 and IETF-77.  If you qualify, and are willing to
forgo appointment to any of the positions for which the nominating
committee is responsible, please volunteer.  

The 10 nominating committee members are selected randomly from a pool of
volunteers.  The details of the operation of nomcom may be found in RFC
3777.  The process on how to volunteer for nomcom is in the initial

The lists of open positions and people whose terms end in March 2011 and
thus the positions for which the nominating committee is responsible are
summarized in the initial announcement:

The primary activity for this nomcom will begin just prior to IETF-78 in
Maastricht and should be completed in early January 2011.  The nomcom will
be collecting requirements from the community, as well as talking to
candidates and to community members about candidates. There will be weekly
conference calls to ensure progress. Thus, being a nomcom member does
require some time commitment.  

While, there is no requirement in RFC 3777 that a participant attend IETF
meetings while serving on nomcom, please consider that during the IETF
meetings, people that do not attend would be expected to remotely
participate during the day in the time zones of the meeting locations -
Maastricht at the end of July and Beijing in November. 

If you are not yet sure you would like to volunteer, please consider that
nomcom members play a very important role in shaping the leadership of the
IETF.  Ensuring the leadership of the IETF is fair and balanced and
comprised of those who can lead the IETF in the right direction is an
important responsibility that rests on the IETF participants at large.
Volunteering for the nomcom is a good way of contributing in that

Please volunteer by sending an email before:
17:00 PDT (24:00 UTC) July 8, 2010 as follows:
