IRC Council call for nominations 2017

The current IRC council has two members whose two year terms are ending. This means it is now election season. The expiring council members are:

  • Elky (Melissa Draper)
  • Flannel (Neal Bussett)

Details about the IRC Council and its charter may be viewed here Council members serve a two year term, and may stand for multiple terms.

As explained on the wiki page the election process is as follows:

  • An open call for nominations should be announced in the IRC Community, and people can nominate themselves for a seat on the council. Any Ubuntu member is welcome to apply.
  • To apply for a seat the candidate must create a Wiki page outlining their work in the community, and inviting others to provide testimonials.
  • When the application deadline has passed, the IRC Council will review the applications and provide feedback on the candidates for the Community Council to review.
  • The Community Council will identify a shortlist for the board and circulate the list publicly for feedback from the community.
  • The shortlist identified by the Community Council will be voted upon by team members as described at CommunityCouncil/Delegation. Members of the Ubuntu IRC Members Team are eligible to vote.
  • The Community Council will then finalize the appointment of IRC Council members.

PLEASE NOTE: once started, the voting pool (collected from the Ubuntu IRC Members Team list) will not be changed. So… please make sure you are a member of the team. The only exception to this will be current members that hide emails
