There is indeed, the board approved a resolution to create the committee
<https://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Resolution:Elections_Committee> in
November which was published recently. I've already talked a bit about it
with the members of the most recent election committee but once it was
published I was wary of moving forward with the conversion to a standing
committee until we knew exactly what was happening with James' seat. Now
that that seems to be done I'm hoping to work with everyone over the next
couple weeks to get it going.
