Hi, Transport Area.

Most of you have probably been on a hiring loop of some kind in your day
jobs. The NomCom vets candidates for various IETF positions, including in
this cycle Magnus's seat as Transport AD. You've probably seen things you
like about certain ADs, and things you don't. You also see organizational
trends that make you happy or sad. As IETF has had to improvise constantly
during 2020, quality of leadership has become even more important. This an
opportunity to help steer things in a better direction without the time
commitment of actually taking one of the positions.

If you meet the requirements, please consider volunteering for Nomcom.
Unless, of course, you're going to run for IESG or IAB!

This is the second sending of the call for volunteers for the 2020-2021

I wanted to mention a few updates from the previous email (sent 2 weeks
 - I've fixed the URL at the bottom of the email to point to
https://datatracker.ietf.org/nomcom/2020/ instead of /2019/. This was a
test to see if anyone was paying attention. Apparently, some people were. ;)
 - The IETF 108 registration form includes a checkbox that will let you
volunteer. You can use this instead of emailing me, when you register for
IETF 108.
 - I currently have 39 volunteers. Last year had 149. I need more
The IETF NomCom appoints people to fill the open slots on the LLC, IETF
Trust, the IAB, and the IESG.

Ten voting members for the NomCom are selected in a verifiably random way
from a pool of volunteers. The more volunteers, the better chance we have
of choosing a random yet representative cross section of the IETF

The details of the operation of the NomCom can be found in BCP 10 (RFC
8713). RFC 3797 details the selection algorithm.

Special for this year (and only this year), we also have RFC 8788 (one-off
update to RFC 8713 / BCP 10) to tell us who is eligible to volunteer:

      Members of the IETF community must have attended at least three of
      the last five in-person IETF meetings in order to volunteer.

      The five meetings are the five most recent in-person meetings that
      ended prior to the date on which the solicitation for NomCom
      volunteers was submitted for distribution to the IETF community.
      Because no IETF 107 in-person meeting was held, for the 2020-2021
      Nominating Committee those five meetings are IETFs
        102 [Montreal, Canada; July 2018],
        103 [Bangkok, Thailand; November 2018],
        104 [Prague, Czech Republic; March 2019],
        105 [Montreal, Canada; July 2019], and
        106 [Singapore; November 2019].

Keep in mind that eligibility is based on in-person attendance at the five
listed meetings. You can check your eligibility at:

If you qualify, please volunteer. Before you decide to volunteer, please
remember that anyone appointed to this NomCom will not be considered as a
candidate for any of the positions that the 2020 - 2021 NomCom is
responsible for filling.

People commonly volunteer by ticking the box on IETF registration forms.
The IETF 106 form did not ask whether people were willing to volunteer.
IETF 107 did ask, but all those registrations were canceled. I have asked
the Secretariat if it is possible to get the list if volunteers from
canceled IETF 107 registrations. If that list is available, I will contact
all who are verified as eligible. But given the uncertainty of this
process, I would encourage people to volunteer directly (see the bottom of
this email for instructions). Thank you for volunteering!

The list of people and posts whose terms end with the March 2021 IETF
meeting, and thus the positions for which this NomCom is responsible, are

IETF Trust:
    Joel Halpern

    Maja Andjelkovic

    Jari Arkko
    Jeff Tantsura
    Mark Nottingham
    Stephen Farrell
    Wes Hardaker
    Zhenbin Li

    Alissa Cooper, IETF Chair/GEN AD
    Alvaro Retana, RTG AD
    Barry Leiba, ART AD
    Deborah Brungard, RTG AD
    √Čric Vyncke, INT AD
    Magnus Westerlund, TSV AD
    Roman Danyliw, SEC AD
    Warren Kumari, OPS AD

All appointments are for 2 years. The Routing area has 3 ADs and the
General area has 1; all other areas have 2 ADs. Thus, all areas (that have
more than one AD) have at least one continuing AD.

The primary activity for this NomCom will begin in July 2020 and should be
completed in January 2021.  The NomCom will have regularly scheduled
conference calls to ensure progress. There will be activities to collect
requirements from the community, review candidate questionnaires, review
feedback from community members about candidates, and talk to candidates.

While being a NomCom member does require some time commitment it is also a
very rewarding experience.

As a member of the NomCom it is very important that you be willing and able
to attend either videoconference or in-person meetings (which may not
happen) during 14-20 November (IETF 109 - Bangkok) to conduct interviews.
Videoconference attendance will be supported whether or not there are
in-person meetings. Orientation and setting of the NomCom schedule will be
done by videoconference during the week 20-24 July (exact time and date to
be determined after NomCom membership is finalized on July 12), the week
prior to IETF 108.  Being at IETF 110 (Prague) is not essential.

Please volunteer by sending me an email before 23:59 UTC June 24, 2020, as

To: nomcom-chair-2020@ietf.org
Subject: NomCom 2020-21 Volunteer

Please include the following information in the email body:

Your Full Name:
    // as you write it on the IETF registration form

Current Primary Affiliation:
    // Typically what goes in the Company field
    // in the IETF Registration Form

   // All email addresses used to register for the past 5 IETF meetings
   // Preferred email address first

    // For confirmation if selected

You should expect an email response from me within 5 business days stating
whether or not you are qualified.  If you don't receive this response,
please re-send your email with the tag "RESEND"" added to the subject line.

If you are not yet sure if you would like to volunteer, please consider
that NomCom members play a very important role in shaping the leadership of
the IETF.  Questions by email or voice are welcome. Volunteering for the
NomCom is a great way to contribute to the IETF!

You can find a detailed timeline on the NomCom web site at:

I will be publishing a more detailed target timetable, as well as details
of the randomness seeds to be used for the RFC 3797 selection process,
within the next few weeks.

Thank you!
