IAB Reappoints Ole Jacobsen to the ICANN NomCom

The IAB has been deliberating the appointment from the IETF community to the ICANN NomCom over the past few weeks. After seeking feedback from the IETF community, the IAB has decided to re-appoint Ole Jacobsen to this position.

The IAB extends its sincere thanks to Ole for serving the community in this role.

IAB Seeks Feedback on IETF Appointment to the ICANN NomCom

The IAB (on behalf of the IETF) has been asked to supply a member to the  2019 ICANN Nominating Committee (NomCom) by 24 August 2018. Last year,  Ole Jacobsen did the job for the IETF community, and he is willing to  serve again.

The IAB would like to solicit comments from the community on Ole  Jacobsen on the ICANN NomCom. While the ICANN NomCom process itself is  confidential, the IAB believes that asking for feedback on this  appointment is important for transparency.

Please send comments to iab-chair@iab.org and execd@iab.org.

We would appreciate receiving comments by Tuesday, 21 August 2018, as  the IAB will begin the next steps in this appointment process shortly so  that the ICANN NomCom member can attend the first formal meeting of the  2019 NomCom in Barcelona in October 2018.

Report to the Community from the IAB for IETF 102

First, I am again happy to note that there were no appeals received by the IAB at the time of writing.

In our last report, the IAB noted that it was in the process of selecting a new liaison to the ICANN Board. Harald Alvestrand was selected by the portion of the IAB not recused, and he and Jonne Soininen are currently sharing information as they run up to the change-over together. The IAB has re-appointed Jim Reid to the position of Root Zone Evolution Review Committee liaison. We thank each of them, as well as the other volunteers, for their willingness to serve.

Under the terms of RFC 6635, the IAB recently called for volunteers to serve on the RFC Series Oversight Committee (RSOC) and there were a gratifyingly large number of volunteers. If you have opinions, information, or perspectives on the individuals for the RSOC which you believe would help the IAB select the RSOC membership, please provide comments to iab-chair@iab.org and execd@iab.org. Please provide feedback before 26 July 2018.

You can always find the documents the IAB has adopted and is working on at https://datatracker.ietf.org/stream/iab. Three new documents may be of interest: Continue reading

The IAB is pleased to announce that they have selected Harald Alvestrand to succeed Jonne Soininen as the IETF Liaison to the ICANN Board of Directors. Harald’s term will begin with the ICANN Annual General Meeting in October. The IAB would like to thank Harald and all of the candidates for their willingness to serve the community in this role.

The IAB also extends special thanks to Jonne for his 6 years of service.
