Nomcom 2015-2016: Second call for volunteers
The IETF nomcom appoints folks to fill the open slots on the IAOC, the IAB,
and the IESG.

Ten voting members for the nomcom are selected in a verifiably random
way from a pool of volunteers. The more volunteers, the better chance we
have of choosing a random yet representative cross section of the IETF

The details of the operation of the nomcom can be found in RFC 7437,
and BCP10/RFC3797 details the selection algorithm.

Volunteers must have attended 3 of the past 5 IETF meetings.  As specified 
in RFC 7437, that means three out of the five past meetings up to the time
this email announcement goes out to start the solicitation of volunteers.
The five meetings out of which you must have attended *three*

IETF 88 (Vancouver), \
         89 (London),       \
         90 (Toronto),         *** ANY THREE!
         91 (Honolulu),     /
         92 (Dallas)        /

If you qualify, please volunteer.   However, much as we want this, before
you decide to volunteer, please be sure you are willing to forgo appointment
to any of the positions for which this nomcom is responsible.

As of today, we have 121 confirmed volunteers. 45 of those who ticked the
box at the Dallas IETF meeting and are deemed qualified have still not
responded; 81 people who ticked the box have been contacted because we could
not verify their qualification; of those, 8 have confirmed that they are not

Thank you for volunteering!

meeting, and thus the positions for which this nomcom is responsible, are

No terms expire at this time.

Benoit Claise (Operations and Management)
Alia Atlas (Routing)
Kathleen Moriarty (Security)
Martin Stiemerling (Transport)

The Applications  and Real-Time (ART) area is the expected new area
resulting from the merge of the APP and RAI areas.
All appointments are for 2 years.
The ART and Routing areas have 3 ADs and the General area has 1; all other areas have 2 ADs.
Thus, all areas have at least one continuing AD.

The primary activity for this nomcom will begin in July 2015 and should be
completed in January 2016.   The nomcom will have regularly scheduled
conference calls to ensure progress. (We might dogfood WebRTC)
There will be activities to collect requirements from the community, review
candidate questionnaires, review feedback from community members about
candidates, and talk to candidates.

Thus, being a nomcom member does require some time commitment; but it is also
a very rewarding experience.

It is very important that you be able to attend IETF94 (Yokohama) to conduct interviews.
Being at IETF93 (Prague) is useful for orientation.  Being at IETF95 is not essential.

Please volunteer by sending me an email before 11:59 pm CET (UTC +2 hours)
June 22, 2015, as follows:

Subject: Nomcom 2015-16 Volunteer

Please include the following information in the email body:

Your Full Name: __________
    // as you write it on the IETF registration form
Current Primary Affiliation:
    // Typically what goes in the Company field
    // in the IETF Registration Form
Emails: _______________
   // All email addresses used to register for the past 5 IETF meetings
   // Preferred email address first
Telephone: _______________________
    // For confirmation if selected

You should expect an email response from me within 3 business days stating
whether or not you are qualified.  If you don't receive this response,
please re-send your email with the tag "RESEND"" added to the subject line.

If you are not yet sure if you would like to volunteer, please consider
that nomcom members play a very important role in shaping the leadership
of the IETF.  Questions by email or voice are welcome.
Volunteering for the nomcom is a great way to contribute to the IETF!

You will find a detailed timeline on the nomcom web site at:

I will be publishing a more detailed target timetable, as well as details
of the randomness seeds to be used for the RFC 3797 selection process,
within the next couple weeks.

Thank you!
