Call for LoCo Council Elections

Thanks to the great work Jan Claeys Alan Pope and Efrain Valles have done in the Ubuntu LoCo Council, in April their term comes to an end. We’d like to thank them for their hard work in the Ubuntu community and continued contributions.

I’m writing this mail to ask for volunteers to step forward and nominate themselves or another willing person for this position.

The LoCo Council is defined on the wiki. We meet up once a month over IRC to go through items on the team agenda. This typically involves approving new LoCo teams Re Approval of teams, resolving issues within teams, approving LoCo team mailing list requests, and anything else that comes along.

* team agenda:

The process by which a new member of the Council is selected is defined by the Community Council is outlined on the wiki. The first stage is for people to nominate themselves, or be nominated by someone else. We will confirm with each person whether they actually want to be put forward or not. We will give 2 weeks for this process.

Please create a page for your nomination as per the following template:

== General ==
* Name:
* Contact details:
=== Key Achievements ===

== Vision ==
(vision for the Loco Council role)

== Testimonials ==
* … (please don’t forget to sign with your `@“SIG“@`)

== Comments ==
* … (please don’t forget to sign with your `@“SIG“@`)

Please pass this mail back to your own LoCo team so everyone is aware of the process. We welcome nominations from anywhere in the world, and from any LoCo team. Nominees do not need to be a LoCo Team Contact to be nominated for this post. We are however looking for people who are active in their LoCo Team.

Please send nominations to loco-council at which is a private mailing list only for the LoCo Council members. The above mailing list is moderated, however all nomination mails will be approved before the end of the nomination period

If you’d like to ask any of the LoCo Council members questions privately then you contact us individually or use the above mailing list address.

The nomination process starts TODAY 26-03-2010, and ends at 00:01 UTC on 09-04-2010. Once this period is over the LoCo Council will collate the nominations and double check that each person nominated is still happy to stand.
