The IAB Outreach coordinator is responsible for planning, coordinating, and keeping track of the Outreach activities undertaken by the IETF Leadership.
The IAB Outreach Coordinator role is usually executed by one IAB member. The IAB assigns the Outreach Coordinator role during the process of selecting all of the annual IAB roles during its March pre-IETF meeting.
Outreach Coordinator Tasks
EODIR seeks to coordinate outreach activities for the IETF undertaken by individuals and organizations. EODIR outreach is directed towards potential new IETF participants (network operators, enterprises, educational institutes, regions with less participation, etc.) but may also track outreach activities undertaken by others targeted to non-participants. The outreach for the IAB is mainly targeted toward reaching out to technical communities.
The Internet Society performs extensive policy and technical outreach activities in the execution of its own mission and planned activities. Where the interests and objectives of these activities overlap with the IAB, the Internet Society and the IAB will work to ensure the two organizations are well informed and coordinated. This coordination will include the IAB Outreach Coordinator and the ISOC Liaison to the IAB. The IAB-ISOC Policy Coordination Administrative Support group may also be engaged in the discussion and coordination as appropriate.
We need to make sure we have good diversity and coverage in the outreach activities selected such that we realize some outreach opportunities every year (i.e., ideally based on the interest or plans of members who already participate in certain events) and also that we don't end up with the same community and events every year.
