  • Name and contact details for nominee
  • CV or biography of nominee
  • Statement of recommendation
  • List of corroborating references, including names, email addresses, and telephone numbers.

What To Include in Your Statement

Your statement should include specific acts, works, contributions, and other criteria that would show the nominee fits the standards set by Jon Postel.
