    In May 2021, the IETF Administration LLC (IETF LLC) on behalf of the IESG and in collaboration with the IAB distributed the first annual IETF community survey to all 56,000 addresses subscribed to IETF mailing lists. Its purpose was "To help better understand our community and its makeup, gather views on the IETF and how well it works for participants, and gain insight into how we compare to similar organisations".

    Welcoming the new IETF Executive Director

    • Jason LivingoodIETF Administration LLC Board Chair

    24 Oct 2019

    One of the most critical tasks facing the inaugural IETF LLC Board this year was to hire a permanent IETF Executive Director.

    As noted at IETF 105, we started the process in May 2019 and as of July we had 134 highly qualified applicants. We thank all of these applicants for their interest, especially those who were finalists in our search process.

    I am delighted to announce today that this process is complete and that Jay Daley has joined the IETF as our first permanent IETF Executive Director!

    Jay brings a broad range of skills and experience to the IETF Executive Director role, including executive, financial, administrative, legal, and technical leadership. He recently served as interim President and CEO of the Public Interest Registry (PIR) and continues to serve on their board.* Before that he was CEO of NZRS, the domain name registry for New Zealand’s .nz ccTLD, and led technology at Nominet UK, the official registry for .UK domain names. He has also served on a variety of other advisory committees and advisory boards.

    Jay and his family live in New Zealand and that is where he will continue to be based as IETF Executive Director. Those who do not know Jay will have the opportunity to meet him at IETF 106 next month, so please take the opportunity to warmly welcome him to our community. Jay can be reached at jay@ietf.org or exec-director@ietf.org

    On behalf of the IETF LLC Board, I also extend our thanks and appreciation to Portia Wenze-Danley for her service as interim IETF Executive Director. Portia has provided a great bridge from the IETF Administrative Oversight Committee (IAOC) organizational model to the IETF LLC structure, keeping the organization functioning well administratively through a great deal of change and uncertainty. Portia will continue until the end of this calendar year in order to provide a smooth transition to Jay, so please do take the opportunity to thank her in person at IETF 106 next month.

    The new IETF Executive Director joins us at a crucial time with a number of key contracts out for tender (RFPs), so Jay will start work on those right away, while also contributing to the ongoing bootstrapping of the LLC through the development of internal policies and processes, development of a long-term fundraising and sponsorship strategy, long-term organizational strategy for the LLC and ED role, and much more.

    * IETF LLC Board and Executive Director Conflict of Interest forms are coming soon.
