Subject: Third Call for Nominations for IETF Chair, IESG, and IAB Positions.
Third Call for Nominations for IETF Chair, IESG, and IAB Positions. The Ask! The 2018-19 Nominating Committee (NomCom) opened the call for nominations on 16 August 2018 and will close nominations on September 30, 2018. The NomCom would like to express their gratitude for the response so far! Keep up the momentum and continue to nominate high-quality candidates to be leaders in the IETF community. This is your chance to ensure the NomCom has a strong pool of nominees for the deliberation stage of the process. Who Has Been Nominated? Following guidance from previous NomComs, we've decided to publish the current list of IESG and IAB nominees who have accepted their nominations. It is our hope that in doing so, we will encourage even more potential nominees to consider running for a position on one of those bodies. We are doing so now so that prospective nominees will have sufficient time to jump through whatever organizational or personal hoops may be necessary in order to be able to stand for one of the open positions. The timeline remains the same: nominations close on September 30th. Nominee questionnaires are due by October 5th. And community feedback will start on October 6th. We have decided not to change the feedback start date in order to give all nominees the potential for the same amount of community attention, regardless of when they were nominated and accepted the nomination. Following is a snapshot of the nominees who have accepted their nominations (sorted by position and then alphabetical by first name): IAB Position: (NomCom filling 6 slots) * Behcet Sarikaya * Brian Haberman * Donald Eastlake * Jeff Tantsura * Niels ten Oever * Randy Bush * Spencer Dawkins * Young Lee * Zhenbin Li IETF Chair (Gen AD) Position: (NomCom filling 1 slot) * Aaron Falk * Alissa Cooper ART AD Position: (NomCom filling 1 slot) * Barry Leiba * Ben Campbell INT AD Position: (NomCom filling 1 slot) * Sheng Jiang Operations AD: (NomCom filling 1 slot) * Warren Kumari Routing AD: (NomCom filling 2 slots) * Alvaro Retana * Deborah Brungard Security AD: (NomCom filling 1 slot) * Hannes Tschofenig * Jim Schaad * Rob Austein Transport AD: (NomCom filling 1 slot) * Magnus Westerlund The Details! The open positions being considered by this year's NomCom can be found at the end of this email and also on this year's NomCom website: https://datatracker.ietf.org/nomcom/2018/ Nominations may be made by selecting the Nominate link at the top of the NomCom 2018 home page, or by visiting the following URL: https://datatracker.ietf.org/nomcom/2018/nominate/ Note: Nominations made using the web tool require an ietf.org datatracker account. You can create a datatracker ietf.org account if you don't have one already by visiting the following URL: https://datatracker.ietf.org/accounts/create/ If you are unable to use the web form, nominations may instead be made by email to nomcom-18 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. Self-nomination is welcome! Willing nominees will be asked to fill out a questionnaire specific to the position for which they are nominated. The questionnaires will be available on August 31, 2018 and have a submission deadline of October 5, 2018. NomCom 2018-19 will follow the policy for "Open Disclosure of Willing Nominees" described in BCP 10/RFC 7437. As stated in RFC 7437: "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 September 30, 2018. Please submit your nominations as early as possible for the sake of your nominees. Note that nominations should not wait for management permission, as it is easier to decline the nomination than put one in late. The NomCom appoints individuals to fill the IETF Chair (IESG General AD) and the open slots on the IAB and the IESG. The IAOC position is not being filled this year, and the call for nominations related to the IETF LLC will be coming in the next few weeks. The list of people and posts whose terms end with the March 2019 IETF meeting, and thus the positions for which this NomCom is responsible, follows: IAB - Jari Arkko - Gabriel Montenegro - Mark Nottingham - Robert Sparks* - Jeff Tantsura - Suzanne Woolf IESG Chair - Alissa Cooper, GEN (IETF Chair) IESG - Ben Campbell, ART - Terry Manderson, INT * - Warren Kumari, OPS - Deborah Brungard, RTG - Alvaro Retana, RTG - Eric Rescorla, SEC - Spencer Dawkins, TSV * *- have indicated that they do not intend to accept a renomination. This information is always up to date on https://datatracker.ietf.org/nomcom/2018/ Please be resourceful in identifying possible candidates for these positions, as developing our talent is a very crucial requirement for the IETF, and also, please consider accepting a nomination. You'll find extensive information about specific positions, developed by the IAB and IESG under individual tabs at: https://datatracker.ietf.org/nomcom/2018/requirements/ In addition to nominations, the NomCom seeks community input on the incumbents and 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-18 at ietf dot org. Thank you for your help in identifying qualified nominees! regards, -scott.
