As Vern has mentioned, he's planning to step down as IRTF Chair.
Before embarking on finding Vern's successor, the IAB is taking this
opportunity to review the overall structure and positioning of the IRTF.
That is, we are interested in determining whether we should be making
adjustments to the way the IRTF operates itself, and/or how it works
with the IETF.  Vern has done a lot of work over the last few years
to help increase the visibility of the IRTF within the IETF (e.g.,
continued plenary presentations from the IRTF RGs, periodic
RG reviews with the IAB, etc).   We naturally have the question,
"what are the next steps?", which we feel we should have a better
grasp on before selecting a successor.

So -- if you have some time before the next IETF meeting (Nov 7-12,
2004), and have some thoughts on the subject, please let me know,
and I'll work up some discussion opportunities with one or more
IAB members.  If you don't have time before then, please feel
free to write down your thoughts and send them to the IAB
(iab@iab.org), and/or we can see about scheduling further discussions

Thanks in advance for any thoughts you may care to share,

IAB Chair.


      Yours to discover."
