It's probably worth pointing out that at the moment less than 7 people have expressed an interest in standing for the 7 seats on the board, so chances are good that anyone that stands will get elected (they would still need 50% support, of course, but I don't think anyone is unpopular enough to fail that requirement in an uncontested election). That said, is anyone on this list thinking of standing that hasn't mentioned it already? I think it's important that we decide who to send sooner rather than later (tickets get more expensive as time goes on, for a start). That means if we're going to send a current board member we need one that can guarantee they'll be available on those dates (if memory serves, only one current board member that is intending to stand again has said they could make it, and that was only a "probably"). > Is there anyone on this list who would be interested in going? As I said on IRC last week, I'll volunteer. It's during my Easter holiday, so I'll have no problem attending. _______________________________________________ Wikimedia UK mailing list wikimediau...@wikimedia.org http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_UK http://mail.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimediauk-l
