Dear Colleagues,

This is a call for nominations or volunteers to co-chair the RIPE DNS 
working group.

Please DO NOT reply to this message if you wish to propose a volunteer.

Call for RIPE DNS Working Group Chair
In accordance with the chair selection process we announce that the term 
of one of our co-chairs (Shane Kerr) will soon expire and we would like 
to invite volunteers, or nominations for someone to become a co-chair of 
the DNS working group.

Anyone may volunteer, and anyone may be nominated by someone else. Note 
that having served two terms, in accordance with the selection process 
Shane is not eligible.

To do this, please send a mail to <dns-wg-chairs _at_ ripe _dot_ net> before Friday 
7 October 2022.

It would be helpful for candidates to give some words as to why they 
think they ought to be a co-chair, what new ideas, or improvements they 
might bring, and so on.

We will publish the list of volunteers, along with anything the 
volunteers wish to include with their nomination, to this mailing list 
on Saturday 8 October 2022. Discussion and support (or opposition) for 
each candidate can then be offered on the list.

At the DNS working group session at RIPE 85, Joao and Moritz hope to 
announce consensus based on the mailing list discussion.
