1.  Introduction

   The ICANN Root Zone Evolution Review Committee (RZERC) reviews
   proposed architectural changes to the content of the DNS root zone,
   the systems including both hardware and software components used in
   executing changes to the DNS root zone, and the mechanisms used for
   distribution of the DNS root zone, and makes recommendations to the
   ICANN Board.  As stipulated in [RZERC-Charter] the IETF is called
   upon to name a delegate to the committee.

   The IAB will select one person for a one-year term.  This appointment
   will be renewable for up to three additional one-year terms.  This
   memo outlines the process by which the IETF makes that selection.

   In brief, this document describes the timeframe and procedures for
   the IAB to solicit public input and make a selection for the open
   position.

2.  Desirable Qualifications for an IETF-Nominated RZERC Member

   Candidates for the RZERC should have a demonstrable involvement in
   the IETF with a particular focus on active participation in IETF
   Working Groups.

   The candidate is expected to possess clearly demonstrated technical
   competence in Internet technology relating to the DNS root zone, and
   be able to articulate those technology issues such that the ICANN
   Board can be provided with sound technical perspectives.  The
   candidate is also expected to be able to understand the respective
   roles and responsibilities of the IETF and ICANN and be able to
   articulate these roles within both organizational communities.
