The Internet Society
(ISOC) provides organizational and financial support for the IETF. As part of the arrangements between ISOC and the IETF, the IETF is called upon to name 3 Trustees to its Board (BoT), with staggered 3 year terms. This requires that the IETF select one Trustee each year.

A description of the process for selecting the Trustee each year can be found in RFC3677.

The timeline the IAB is using this year is as follows:

January 14: Open nominations period
February 25:

Nomination Details:

Nominees should be aware that ISOC Trustees are elected to three year terms with approximately one third of the Board of Trustees elected each year.

  • The candidate’s name will be published, with all other candidate names, at the close of the nominations period
  • Excerpts of the information provided to the IAB by the nominated candidate will be passed to the IESG as part of the confirmation process. The IESG will be requested to maintain confidentiality of the candidate’s information
