Candidates and Nomination Form


NANOG Program Committee

The Program Committee is a group of individuals from the NANOG community who together are responsible for the solicitation and selection of material for NANOG meeting programs. The Board of Directors will select new Program Committee members at NANOG 78 in February 2020.

Broad technical knowledge of Internet operations and familiarity with NANOG meetings are useful attributes. Having constructive opinions and ideas about how NANOG meetings might be improved is of high value. A willingness to recruit presentations for each meeting is required. Program Committee members are expected to volunteer a minimum of one hour per week in the 12 weeks leading up to a meeting, and an additional 24 hours all year round.

All candidates will be notified of their nomination and will be asked to accept or decline the nomination. If accepted, they will be asked to complete an online questionnaire and their Declaration of Candidacy. The Board of Directors will appoint Program Committee Members on Wednesday, February 12, 2020. All nominations and candidate questions must be submitted by 9:00PM PST on February 11, 2020 in order to be considered for appointment to the committee by the Board of Directors.
