[asciidoc-wg] AsciiDoc Working Group Elections- Call for Nominations

The AsciiDoc Working Group Charter identifies the Steering committee as a key governing body to drive various aspects of the working group for which there are elected positions to be filled.. 

While the Partner Members are appointed, this election will take place for the three Committer Member Seats. 

Through this email, we are announcing the Eclipse Foundation will hold elections on behalf of the working group for the Committer Member Representatives, using the proposed timetable listed below:

Committer Members are those who are engaged in projects under the purview of the working group).  Committers may be considered members by virtue of either a) being employed by a working group corporate member, or b) an individual committer who has executed the AsciiDoc Working Group’s Individual Participation Agreement.  If you are interested but unsure if you are a committer member, please reach out to us.  

All Committer members are encouraged to consider nominating and  self-nominations are also more than welcome!

Elections Schedule:

May 6 - May 13: Call for Nominations

May 14:  Announce Candidates Standing

May 15 - 22:  Ballots Distributed (Voting Period)

May 23:  Announce Election Results

Nominations must be sent to this mailing list indicating related seat.  When the nomination period is closed, we will inform the working group of the confirmed candidates providing a short bio for each along with their position statement.  At that point, we will distribute ballots via email to those eligible to vote.  The election process will follow the Eclipse “Single Transferable Vote” method, as defined in the Eclipse Bylaws.  The winning candidates will be announced on this mailing list following the close of the election. Self nominations are welcome. Candidates currently holding a seat are encouraged to self-nominate themselves should they wish to continue.

Please let us know if you have any questions.  Nominations are now open!. Best Regards,
