NomCom 2021-2022 Call for Nominations
Finally! The moment we've all been waiting for:

   C A L L       F O R       N O M I N A T I O N S  ! ! !

The 2021-22 IETF Nominating Committee (NomCom) is seeking nominations 
from now until Monday, October 11, 2021. 

The open positions and more information are found at the NomCom web site: 

They are also included below for convenience.

Nominations may be made by selecting the Nominate link at the top of the
NomCom 2021 home page, or by visiting the following URL:

Self-nomination is welcome! 

Note:  Nominations made using the web tool require an datatracker 
account. You can create a datatracker 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-2021 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.

Willing nominees will be asked to fill out a questionnaire specific to the position 
for which they are nominated. The finalized questionnaires will be available no 
later than Monday, September 6, 2021 (preliminary versions are already posted) 
and have a submission deadline of Monday, October 18, 2021. 

NomCom 2021-22 will follow the policy for "Open Disclosure of Willing 
Nominees" described in BCP 10/RFC 8713: "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 
Monday, October 11, 2021.

Please submit your nominations as early as possible for the sake of your 
nominees. Note that nominations should not wait for nominee management 
permission, as it is easier to decline the nomination than put one in late.

The NomCom appoints individuals to fill open slots on the IAB, IESG, the IETF 
Trust and the LLC Board:

	ART AD: 1 position

Please be resourceful in identifying possible candidates for these positions, as

consider accepting a nomination. You'll find extensive information about specific 
positions, in individual tabs at: 

In addition to nominations, the NomCom seeks community input on the positions 
themselves. We need and welcome the community's views and input on the jobs 
within each organization. If you have ideas on the positions’ responsibilities 
(more, less, different), please let us know.

Please send suggestions and feedback about this to nomcom-2021 at ietf dot org. 

Thank you for your help in identifying qualified nominees!
