The RIPE Chair represents you, the RIPE community. This community has been, and always will be, driven bottom up and by consensus. Your ideas and input form the foundation of what this selection procedure will look like. Key questions for a procedure are: * Who can be selected as RIPE Chair * Who will select the RIPE Chair * How will the selection happen? Should we have an election? Decided by a show of hands at a RIPE Meeting? Evoting? A selection panel? A vetting process by the RIPE Working Group Chairs? Should there be a RIPE Vice Chair? Your involvement and consensus on the selection procedure is crucial. We've established a dedicated mailing list for this discussion: To subscribe to the list, please visit
