Technical Summary

draft-ietf-iasa2-rfc7437bis defines the selection, confirmation, and recall process for IETF NomCom appointments. As component of the IASA2 process, changes to this process are required for three main reasons: to support NomCom appointment of IETF LLC Board members in place of the prior IAOC appointment process; to replace previous guidance about selecting IETF Trust members from the IAOC with a new, independent process; and to reflect the renaming of the previous IETF Executive Director position to the Managing Director of the IETF Secretariat. 

As such, this document obsoletes RFC7437. It also obsoletes RFC8318, which gave guidance for NomCom process surrounding the now-defunct IAOC.

Working Group Summary

This document has had sufficient comment in the working group, including multiple reviews with resulting revisions. The WG supports the advancement of this document as a necessary part of the IASA2 transition. 

Document Quality

For the most part, this document steers close to RFC7437, introducing no changes except where necessary to reflect shifts in the IETF administrative process resulting from the IASA2 restructuring.
