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 4 Trustees to its Board (BoT), 
with staggered 3-year terms.  This requires that the IETF select one
Trustee in 2017. 

This year, the IAB will select 1 person for a term beginning in mid-2017
and ending in mid-2020. 

A description of the IAB's process for selecting the Trustee each year 
can be found in RFC 3677, with this year's timeline as follows: 

* Sunday, November 13, 2016 : Open nomination period

* Monday, January 30, 2017 : Close of the nomination period 

* Wednesday, February 1, 2017 - Wednesday March 1, 2017 : Community feedback period

* No later than March 10, 2017: IAB selection delivered to IESG for 

* No later than April 21, 2017 : Delivery of final confirmed selection 
 to the ISOC Elections Committee for announcement with the rest of
 the new ISOC BoT slate. 


Nominations (including self-nominations) should be sent to the IAB 
Executive Administrative Manager at <>.  Please include e-
mail contact details with the nomination. 

Nomination Details 

Nominees should be aware that ISOC Trustees are elected to three year 
terms with approximately one third of the Board of Trustees 
selected each year. The responsibilities of a Trustee include fiscal 
management of the Internet Society, fundraising, and participation
in Board meetings plus conference-call meetings, as detailed by
the ISOC Bylaws:

The desirable characteristics of a candidate that are specific

  appropriate level of time to activities associated with the 
  position of Trustee.

5. A statement of interests, concerns about the Internet Society, goals 
  as a Trustee and motivation to serve as a Trustee. 

6. Any further information that is relevant to the work of the IAB in 
  considering your nomination. 

Time Commitment

board and committee business. Trustees are also expected to allocate
some time to attend and prepare for meetings.
