indicate in the email who is being nominated, their email address (to

for more than one position, please use separate emails to do so.

Self nomination is welcome. 

NomCom 2011-2012 will follow the policy for "Open Disclosure of Willing 
Nominees" described in RFC 5680.  As stated in RFC 5680: "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 publicly listed.  The public nominee list will be 
updated at least once a week and possibly more often as nominations are

confidentiality requirements of RFC 3777 remain in effect.  All

Because the list of nominees this year is public, we will accept 
feedback on the nominees starting August 23, 2011. Per RFC 5680, we 
will accept feedback from the entire IETF community on all the nominees. 

If you wish to provide anonymous feedback, the chair or any of the 
members will be happy to handle this for you.  The Nominating Committee 
chair can be reached at and the entire nominating 
committee can be reached at The email addresses of 
individual NomCom members is also on the NomCom 2011-2012 pages.

In addition to nominations, the Nominating Committee is actively
seeking community input on the jobs that need to be filled.  We have
received the job descriptions from the IAB, IESG, and IAOC and they can
be found at:

However, we also need the community's views and input on the jobs 
within each organization. If you have ideas on job responsibilities 
(more, less, different), please let us know.  Please send suggestions 
and feedback to 

Thank you,

Suresh Krishnan
Chair, NomCom 2011-2012
