The IAB is responsible for selecting one IETF Administrative Oversight Committee (IAOC) member for a two-year term starting in March 2015. The selection was made in accordance with BCP 101 and BCP 113.
A call for nominations was issued on 8 October 2014. Nominations for four candidates were received, and three of them were willing to serve. All who accepted the nomination were very strong candidates and their names were announced on 7 November 2014.
After obtaining written input from all nominees and feedback from the community on all of them, the IAB discussed which candidate to choose. After significant discussion, the IAB decided to appoint Benson Schliesser to this position.
The IAB thanks all of the nominees for their willingness to serve the IETF community.
