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 three Trustees to its Board, with staggered 3 year terms. This requires that the IETF select one Trustee each year. The IAB does this selection following the process in RFC 3677.
I am pleased to announce that the IAB has selected Sean Turner for a term on the ISOC BoT. His term will start in mid-2014 and end in mid-2017.
On behalf of the IAB,
