Meeting Date: 
Sat, 24 Jun 2017
Resolution Number: 
2017.06.24.02
Resolution Text: 

Whereas, the Security and Stability Advisory Committee (SSAC) does review its membership and make adjustments from time-to-time.

Whereas, the SSAC Membership Committee, on behalf of the SSAC, requests that the Board should appoint Andrew de la Haije to the SSAC for a three-year term beginning immediately upon approval of the Board and ending on 31 December 2020.

Resolved, (2017.06.24.02) that the Board appoints Andrew de la Haije to the SSAC for a three-year term beginning immediately upon approval of the Board and ending on 31 December 2020.

Rationale for Resolution: 

The SSAC is a diverse group of individuals whose expertise in specific subject matters enables the SSAC to fulfill its charter and execute its mission. Since its inception, the SSAC has invited individuals with deep knowledge and experience in technical and security areas that are critical to the security and stability of the Internet's naming and address allocation systems.

The SSAC's continued operation as a competent body is dependent on the accumulation of talented subject matter experts who have consented to volunteer their time and energies to the execution of the SSAC mission. Andrew is the Chief Operating Officer of Réseaux IP Européens (RIPE), a position he has held for over 10 years. He has been active in the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and ICANN in various capacities for many years. He brings significant operational experience from the Regional Internet Registry (RIR) community including substantial technical expertise. The SSAC believes Andrew would be a significant contributing member of the SSAC.
