Technical Summary

   This memo updates the selection of trustees for the IETF Trust.
   Previously, the Internet Administrative Oversight Committee (IAOC)
   members also acted as trustees but the IAOC has been eliminated as
   part of an update of the structure of the Internet Administrative
   Support Activity (IASA).  This memo specifies that the trustees shall
   be selected separately.

RFC Editor Note

The RFC Editor is requested to make the following change in Section 2, which has been discussed in the IASA2 WG:

OLD 
The processes regarding NomCom appointments and recalls of Trustees for the IETF Trust follow those described in [RFC7437].  For the appointments by the IESG, the IESG is expected to run an open selection process and to consider the necessary skill set and conflicts of interest as part of that process.

NEW 
Trustees appointed by the IETF NomCom may be recalled according to the recall process described in [BCP 10]. Trustees appointed by the IESG or by the ISOC Board of Directors may be recalled by the appointing body.  For the appointments by the IESG, the IESG is expected to run an open selection process and to consider the necessary skill set and conflicts of interest as part of that process.
