Colleagues, you will be aware that we have adopted a procedure for the regular appointment of a WG co-chair. It is now going to be invoked for the first time. If you are interested in helping to run the WG, now's your chance to step forward. The main responsibility for a co-chair is to prepare the agenda for WG sessions by identifying potential speakers and discussion topics. There are also some obligations for the Policy Development Process but these are not so significant for the DNS WG because it rarely makes DNS policy. Further details of a WG Chair's responsibilities are in RIPE Document 542. If anyone is interested in volunteering and needs more info about what that entails, feel free to contact any or all of Jaap, Peter or myself. The barriers for entry are zero. Anyone can volunteer simply by posting to the list. You can nominate anyone, including yourself. It might be helpful for candidates to give the WG an explanation of why they have been nominated, what fresh ideas or suggestions they have, possible improvements to WG activities, etc, etc. Members of the WG can express their support (or not) for those who volunteer. The WG will decide by consensus on the list who gets appointed. If there is no consensus, the consensus tied candidates will draw lots. The aim is to have a co-chair appointed by this process at the meeting in Bucharest.
