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 beginning in March 2017. 

Following the call for nominations, which ran from 5 October 2016 
through 2 November 2016, the IAB contacted each person that
was nominated, asking them to accept or reject their nomination.  At 
this point, 7 people have indicated a willingness to serve. They are:

       Charles Eckel 
       Nalini Elkins 
       Aaron Falk
       Gaurav Meena 
       Abdelhamid AL Rahamneh	
       Kaveh Ranjbar	
       Gatta Sambasiva Rao 
The IAB is actively soliciting confidential comments on these people
and their ability to serve on the IAOC. The IAB needs to receive these
comments by 30 November 2016 in order to make a selection in December 
2016. Please send comments to and

Note that the NomCom will also be selecting a person to serve on the 
IAOC for a two-year term. This process is orthogonal, the IAB is not 
privy to comments you might have submitted to the NomCom.
On Behalf of the IAB,
Cindy Morgan
IAB Executive Administrative Manager
