The Program Committee (PC) is responsible for the programs at all NANOG meetings and events. To be eligible to be appointed as a member of the PC, an individual must have attended one NANOG conference within the prior calendar year (12 months), and be a member in good standing.

Broad technical knowledge of Internet operations and familiarity with NANOG meetings are useful attributes. A strong candidate should have experience with NANOG through meeting attendance, meeting presentations, and have been an active member of the NANOG mailing list for a minimum of 3 years. 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.


Support NANOG strategy/goals:

  • Build unified branding and messaging in regards to NANOG’s unique position and community.
  • Develop mutually rewarding agreements with sponsors and presenters.
  • Maintain a sense of community and accessibility at conferences and in archived materials.
  • Develop and deploy a portfolio of programs, events, and resources that meet the broad range of members.

Deliverables:

  • Responsible for recruiting a minimum of 3 talks per calendar year.
  • Required to attend 75% of all scheduled PC calls.
  • Expected to attend 66% of all NANOG meetings over the course of their two-year term.
  • Serve as an agenda moderator twice over the course of their two-year term.
  • PC members are expected to volunteer up to 10 hours in the 12 weeks leading up to a meeting, and an additional 24 hours all year round.

Measures of success:

  • Number of talks recruited per year.
  • Participation in NANOG meeting PC planning calls.
  • Solicitation and voting of presentation submissions.
  • Meeting registration.
