As previously discussed, the IAB is seeking an additional chair or 
chairs for the RFC Editor Future Development Program [1].

This program is modeled on an IETF working group, and will use its 
mailing list (rfced-future@iab.org) to develop and validate consensus 
among the participants. 

The program currently has one chair, Eliot Lear. The current IAB has 
received significant feedback from the community that a second chair 
needs to be selected, and the IAB is eager to fill that position with a 
great candidate as soon as is practical. The IAB is now seeking at least 
one additional chair from outside the IAB to join Eliot. Together, these 
chairs will set the detailed agenda, manage the program, and call 
consensus among the participants. The program also has two liaisons from 
the IAB to assist with logistical matters, Wes Hardaker and Jared Mauch.

If you are interested in serving in this role, please send a short email 
message to iab-chair@iab.org and execd@iab.org with your motivation and 
information concerning your familiarity with IETF working groups or 
similar processes. The deadline for volunteering is Tuesday, 2020-05-12 
at 2359 UTC. The IAB will then solicit public comments on the candidates 
before making a decision.

Best regards,
Cindy Morgan, for the IAB
