Dear all, 


Following a good practice that candidates should not run for more than 2 terms, I do not intend to volunteer again for the IAOC. 


To all interested, I think the work on the IAOC is a very interesting and rewarding activity for our community. 

And I like to highly encourage interested volunteers to come and help with your time and advise. 

Over the last few years we went through interesting times with challenges from the IANA transition work, funding and new considerations for meeting location selections, to name just a few. Many things that matter to our community. It takes time, but it is important to help fulfill a smooth operation for our meetings and other administrative aspects of our community and the IETF Trust. 


On a personal note: I found the IAOC is a bit short of diversity when it comes to members from non-Western regions and especially as Asia is a region of more and more relevance, I like to encourage candidates from Asia to consider volunteering. 


With best wishes and see you all soon in Singapore,

Subject: Call for nominations for the IAOC appointment by the IESG


Tobias Gondrom is the IAOC member who was last appointed by the IESG. His two-year term is up in March. The IESG is starting the process to fill this seat in March 2018, with the term ending in March 2020.


The IESG is responsible for filling one seat every other year. BCP 101 says:


The IAOC shall consist of eight voting members who shall be selected as follows:


o Two members appointed by the IETF Nominations Committee (NomCom);


o One member appointed by the IESG;


o One member appointed by the IAB;


o One member appointed by the ISOC Board of Trustees;


o The IETF Chair (ex officio);


o The IAB Chair (ex officio);


o The ISOC President/CEO (ex officio).


Current IAOC members can be found at ​





Candidates for the IAOC position should have a demonstrable involvement in the IETF, knowledge of contracts and financial procedures, and some awareness of the administrative support needs of the IETF. Candidates are also expected to understand the respective roles and responsibilities of the IETF and ISOC in IASA, and be able to articulate these roles within the IETF community.


Candidates must be able to exercise all the duties of an IAOC member, including fiduciary responsibilities, setting of policies, oversight of the administrative operations of the IETF, representing the interests of the IETF, and participating in IAOC meetings and activities. More information about expertise and duties for a member of the IAOC (including time commitments) can be found at ​ under the "IAOC member" tab


Candidates must be able to serve as a Trustee for the IETF Trust.


Although the IESG selects this member of the IAOC, the selected member does not directly represent the IESG. The IESG-selected member is accountable directly to the IETF community.





The IESG is making a public call for nominations. Self-nominations are permitted. All IETF participants, including working group chairs, IETF NomCom members, IAB members, and IESG members are eligible for nomination. Of course, IESG members who accept nomination will recuse themselves from selection discussions. Persons who are under consideration by the Nomcom in the 2017-2018 cycle for the open IAOC position are also permitted to apply. Please send nominations to iesg at <> . Please include the following with each nomination:


o Name


o Contact information


o Candidate background and qualifications





The IESG will publish the list of nominated persons prior to making a decision, allowing time for the community to provide any relevant comments to the IESG.


The IESG will review the nomination material, any comments provided by the community, and make a selection.





The following procedures will be used in managing candidates' personal information:


o The list of candidate names will be published at the close of the nominations period. A candidate that refuses the nomination will not be included on the list.


o Except as noted above, all information provided to the IESG during this process will be kept as confidential to the IESG.





The nominations period will open on October 23, 2017 and close on November 17, 2017.


The list of candidates will be posted shortly after the nominations close, and the community will have two weeks to provide comments on the candidates to the IESG.


The IESG will make a selection on the IESG telechat following the comment period.



On behalf of the IESG,


Alissa Cooper

IESG Chair
