From: Leslie Daigle To: IETF Announcement List Subj: Call for nominations: IAOC position selected by the IAB Cc: The IAB is making a call for nominations for the IETF Administrative Oversight Committee (IAOC), as described in BCP 101 (RFC 4071) and BCP 113 (RFC 4333). The IESG and the IAB each select one person for a two-year IAOC term in alternate years. This year, the IAB will select one person for a term ending in spring 2009. The incumbent is Lucy Lynch, who was selected by the IAB for an initial two year term expiring in spring 2007. Candidates for these IAOC positions should have knowledge of the IETF, knowledge of contracts and financial procedures, and familiarity with the administrative support needs of the IAB, the IESG, and the IETF standards process. The candidates are also expected to be able to understand the respective roles and responsibilities of the IETF and ISOC in this activity, and be able to articulate these roles within the IETF community. The candidates will also be expected to exercise all the duties of an IAOC member, including being prepared to undertake any associated responsibilities. These include, but are not limited to, the setting of administrative support policies, oversight of the administrative operations of the IETF, and representing the interests of the IETF to the IAOC. The candidates must be able to undertake full participation in all Committee meetings and Committee activities. The IAB-selected member of the IAOC does not directly represent the IAB. The IAB and IESG selected members are accountable directly to the IETF community. Candidates do not need to be current members of the IAB or IESG, and in fact we prefer nominations and volunteers from the rest of the community. If you are interested in one of these positions, or know of someone who may be a good fit for this position, please send the name and email address to Phil Roberts, Executive Director of the IAB at . The IAB will respond with a questionnaire, asking for the candidates’ qualifications and willingness to serve. The names of all people who declare themselves willing to serve will be made public on the list after the end of the solicitation period (December 22). The IAB expects to make a decision on or before January 29 (prior to the expected date at which the Nomcom will select its IAOC nominee). Leslie Daigle, for the IAB.
