Dear member, as you should know, the Nomination phase for the Election of the next Board of Directors is already open, so if you haven't done yet, please consider to candidate yourself for that important but really amazing role. You have time until next monday (included - CET, see below).
By the way, in the announcement for the elections, candidates are asked to give a 75 words statement. We'd like to give some additional explanation. The ~75 words statement will be the one that is used on the website where the candidates are presented before the voting starts. Below the statement on that page, there will be a link to the mail in which the nomination is confirmed. So if you would want to write more on the why and how of your candidacy, that fits fine in that mail. As long as there is the shorter statement too. In writing a motivation, one can think of topics such as: what you want to achieve, ideas on growing TDF-membership, ideas on where TDF could be in five years, ... And of course there is time-frame for Q&A with all candidates. We hope this explanation will help to give all candidates equal chances to give their motivation in the detail they like. Now that we're writing you anyway, lets also give a summary of the procedure: Nomination phase start: 2017-10-19 end: 2017-11-27, 23:59 CET/UTC+1 Elections: start: 2017-12-05, 00:00 CET/UTC+1 end: 2017-12-12, 23:59 CET/UTC+1 Announcement preliminary results 2017-12-13 Challenging phase start: 2017-12-14, 00:00 CET/UTC+1 end: 2017-12-18, 23:59 CET/UTC+1 Then afterwards: announcement of the final results --- Gabriele Ponzo Chairman of the Membership Committee The Document Foundation, Kurfürstendamm 188, 10707 Berlin Gemeinnützige rechtsfähige Stiftung des bürgerlichen Rechts Legal details: http://www.documentfoundation.org/imprint
