The RIPE Coop WG aims for multiple Chairs, with two or three Chairs, ideally from differing sectors, being ideal. The process for selecting a new chair is as follows: 1. A call for interested parties is made on the WG mailing list at least every three years, or whenever needed. 2. Interested parties have two weeks to make their interest known via the mailing list, or directly to the Chair/s. 3. After two weeks, the Chair/s ensure that all candidates are announced on the mailing list and issue a call for discussion.
