Dear Technical Oversight Committee,

On June 3, 2021, the term
<> for two of the three
current Security TAG co-chairs, Sarah Allen (@ultrasaurus
<>) and Jeyappragash JJ (@pragashj
<>) comes to an end.

The TOC election process
requires nomination from TOC and then ⅔ vote. We have also followed the
Security TAG governance process for proposing candidates, since
have clear successors who are already working within the group.
candidates below have unanimous support from our TOC liaisons, as well as
the three current co-chairs.

We believe that Aradhna Chetal and Brandon Lum, along with current chair
Emily Fox, will enable “full coverage of the leadership capabilities across
the key qualities of industry experience, hands-on cloud-native and
security experience, as well as administrative experience needed to run a
Security TAG.” While both currently serve as Tech Leads for the group (as
did Emily before she became chair), we do not consider that a prerequisite
for the chair position.
