>The 2000 IETF Nominations Committee has now completed its
>work; the IAB has approved the IESG recommendations, and
>the ISOC has approved the IAB recommendations. Please join
>us in welcoming the incoming members of the IESG and IAB:
>Harald Alvestrand IETF Chair
>Scott Bradner Transport
>Randy Bush Operations & Management
>Patrik Faltstrom Applications
>Thomas Narten Internet
>Abha Ahuja Routing
>Jeff Schiller Security
>A word of thanks
>This year we have had extraordinary participation at all
>points in the nomcom process, and so I would like to thank
>the IETF community for doing your part in helping the nomcom
>select the incoming members of the IESG and IAB.
>Firstly, I would like to thank everyone who volunteered to
>participate in this year's nominations committee (more than
>100 of you!).
>I'd also like to thank the members of the 2000 nominations
>committee, who volunteered to participate in the weekly 1-hour
>conference calls, which eventually became twice weekly 3.5 hour
>conference calls. This year's nomcom, as with previous nomcoms,
>observed both the letter and spirit of RFC 2727. Many thanks.
>The IETF community was extremely generous this year in sending
>us your thoughts on the present and future of the IETF, the
>performance of the incumbents, and suggestions for potential
>candidates for the IESG and IAB. For that we are deeply
>grateful -- your guidance informed the nomcom process every
>step of the way.
> >From your responses, it is obvious that this community is
>passionate about the future of the Internet and is devoted to
>seeing it thrive.
>Thanks to those who were nominated, but declined to run, for
>considering candidacy on the IAB and IESG. For many of you, who
>are qualified and have the desire to serve, but not the time,
>this was a difficult decision to make. We appreciate your
>realism and honesty.
>Special thanks to those who were nominated and consented to
>candidacy. Many of you had to have difficult discussions with
>your management and family members before deciding to run. We
>appreciate your willingness to put career and family aside in
>order to serve the IETF.
>We also appreciate the effort you put into completing the
>questionairre, and in some cases a supplemental questionairre
>It was a very gratifying to read your profound thoughts about
>the future of the Internet as well as more mundane concerns
>about the day to day management issues we face in the IETF.
>Due to the outstanding response to our call to service, we had
>many more qualified candidates than we had slots on the IESG
>and IAB. While this pays hommage to the IETF's strength as an
>organization, it also by its nature must result in disappointment
>for many qualified candidates.
>I hope those of you who we could not select will understand that
>the nomcom's decision does not in any way detract from your
>tremendous contributions to the Internet. We hope that your
>disappointment in this year's process will not disuade you from
>volunteering for candidacy next year, and the year after that.
>The IETF needs you.
>Finally, I would like to thank the incoming members of the IAB
>and IESG, who have pledged so much of their time and energy to
>the betterment of the IETF in the years ahead. We of the nomcom,
>after having spent considerable effort in the last few months
>assisting in your selection, now have a greater appreciation of
>the personal sacrifices that you have made for the IETF and even
>greater respect for the role that you play.
>Our best wishes for your success in the years ahead,
>The 2000 Nominations Committee
