The RIPE Chair selection process is an open, transparent procedure for selecting RIPE Chairs and RIPE Vice Chairs that is endorsed by the RIPE community.
In September 2020, the RIPE Nominating Committee (NomCom) selected Mirjam Kühne and Niall O'Reilly as the new RIPE Chair and Vice Chair. The RIPE Chair and Vice Chair are elected for a five-year term, with a two-term limit. A report detailing the selection process conducted by the 2020 NomCom is available.
The next RIPE Chair and Vice Chair selection process, which includes the formation of a new NomCom, will begin in 2024, with the selection taking place in 2025.
