2007 Squeak Board Elections announced
1 February, 2007
Daniel Vainsecher, leader of the Elections team, has announced the timeline and process for the 2007 elections of the Squeak Foundation Board:
Starting today [Sunday, 28th January], and for the next 2 weeks (until 18th February ’07), candidates for the Squeak board are invited to announce themselves on this mailing list.
In particular, when applying, candidates are encouraged to mention their background, general reasons for running, and particular plans if they get elected. Other candidates and all squeakers are invited to pose additional questions.
For 2 weeks starting from the 18th, prospective voters are asked to make sure they are registered. Remember that the basic criterion for voting is having a Squeak People account that is validated at least to the Apprentice level. This is also a good time to talk to other Squeaker communities and get them involved.
The voters list will be finalized on the 3rd of March, and the CIVS election started. The election will run for 3 days, and the results announced on March 7th, 2007.
The News Team will closely follow the whole elections process.
