Dear IETF Working Group chairs,

Based on preliminary feedback, including during conversations with a few WG chairs at the IETF 106 meeting, and in consultation with the EMO Directorate [1], we would like to gather further information about what resources are helpful to you in your role as a WG chair and how they might be improved. We are also looking to understand what gaps exist in these resources and how those might be addressed.

As a first step, we would like to speak with a handful of current working group chairs. If you are available for a conversation in the next week, please pick a time and share your email address using this Doodle poll:

In addition to providing further information, these conversations will be used to inform a short survey which all working group chairs will be invited to complete. Our goal is to complete the survey, analyze responses, and share a summary of findings ahead of IETF 109.

Thank you for your engagement in this effort to understand how best to support the work of the IETF community.

Please let me know if I can provide any additional information.





Greg Wood
