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 near the end of the February NANOG Conference.
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 near the end of the February NANOG Conference.
