Hi LoCo teams!

A little while ago Nick Ali stepped down from the LoCo Council. We
were of course very sad to see this happen, and would like to thank
Nick for his great work on the Council. However, we are now down one
person, and need to find a new member. I'm writing this mail to ask
for volunteers to step forward and nominate themselves or another
willing person for this position. There is only one position
available, so if more than one person steps forward, there will be a
vote to decide on the successful candidate.

The LoCo Council is defined on the wiki [0]. We meet up once a month
over IRC to go through items on the team agenda [1]. This typically
involves approving new LoCo teams, resolving issues within teams,
approving LoCo team mailing list requests, and anything else that
comes along.

The process by which a new member of the Council is selected is
defined by the Community Council is outlined on the wiki [2].

The first stage is for people to nominate themselves, or be nominated
by someone else. We will confirm with each person whether they
actually want to be put forward or not. We will give ~2 weeks for this
process. Please pass this mail back to your own LoCo team so everyone
is aware of the process. We welcome nominations from anywhere in the
world, and from any LoCo team. Nominees do not need to be a LoCo Team
Leader to be nominated for this post. We are however looking for
people who are active in their LoCo Team.

** Please send nominations to loco-council at which is a
private mailing list only for the LoCo Council members. **

The above mailin list is moderated, however all nomination mails will
be approved before the end of the nomination period

If you'd like to ask any of the LoCo Council members questions
privately then you contact us individually [3] or use the above
mailing list address.

** The nomination process starts now, and ends at 00:01 UTC on 7th
October 2009. **

Once this period is over the LoCo Council will collate the nominations
and double check that each person nominated is still happy to stand.
We will then pass this list to the CC as per the process outlined at

Many thanks,
Ubuntu LoCo Council.
