Call for RIPE NCC Services Working Group Chair
----------------------------------------------

In accordance with the chair selection process we announce that the term 
of one of our co-chairs (Bijal Sanghani) will soon expire and we would 
like to invite volunteers, or nominations, for someone to become a 
co-chair of the RIPE NCC Services working group.

Anyone may volunteer, and anyone may be nominated by someone else.

To do this, please send a mail to <ncc-services-wg-chairs _at_ ripe _dot_ net> 
before the end of Tuesday 9th November 2021.

It would be helpful for candidates to provide 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 include with their nomination, to this mailing list on 
Wednesday 10th November 2021. Discussion and support (or opposition) for 
each candidate can then be offered on the list.

At the NCC Services working group session at RIPE 83, Kurtis and Rob 
hope to announce consensus based on the mailing list discussion.
