NomCom Members 2007
Fred Baker, ISOC Liaison
Lakshminath Dondeti, Chair
Lars Eggert, IESG Liaison
Andrew Lange, Advisor
Danny McPherson, IAB Liaison
During IETF 69, the NomCom collected feedback on member qualifications. Candidate interviews and community feedback will take place at IETF70 in Vancouver.
Number of people eligible to volunteer: ~900+
Number of volunteers: 108
The number of volunteers increased following a decrease in 2005 and 2006. This is a good sign. There is still a limited number of candidates for open positions in the IESG, IAB and IAOC. There could be a number of reasons why this would be, including the time commitment that’s required. There might also be a mismatch of the requirements for the positions (or at least a perceived one). Finally, potential candidates might think that the ‘incumbants are doing a fine job’ and therefore hesitate to volunteer.
The NomCom encourages the community to provide feedback to the NomCom at email@example.com on issues such as:
- desirable qualifications for positions
- possible time commitment
- how IESG, IAB and other parts of the IETF are functioning
More input and more candidates would be helpful for the NomCom and for the whole IETF.
The following positions are up for considerations for the next term:
Jari Arkko (Internet area)
Ross Callon (Routing area)
Cullen Jennings (Real-time Applications and Infrastructure area)
Lisa Dusseault (Applications area)
Sam Hartman (Security area)
Dan Romascanu (Operations and Management area)
Magnus Westerlund (Transport area)
