Ad Hoc BCOP Committee - Call for Volunteers

Hail NANOGers!

Per approval of the NANOG Board in February 2013, a community effort to
develop a NANOG sponsored regional BCOP effort was engaged. NANOG BCOP
Tracks and updates were provided at RIPE, ARIN, NANOG 57, 58, and 59.

In November of 2013, sufficient interest and momentum in the NANOG BCOP
effort emerged. On November 21, 2013, the NANOG Board approved the
appointment of an Ad Hoc Committee Chair who would report to the Board and
direct the efforts of NANOG-BCOP.

I have agreed to serve as Chair and am now seeking volunteers to continue
with the important work of the committee. Please consider volunteering your
time and effort in support of this important NANOG activity!

To help guide you, please review the following committee expectations:

Strategies and Goals:
* Support an open, transparent, and bottom-up/grassroots process for the
creation of current
and living practical network operation documentation
* Facilitate the development of mutually rewarding documents and guides
* Maintain the sense of community and accessibility in BCOP materials
* Develop and deploy a portfolio of guides that meet the needs of the broad
range of NANOG operators
