Dear LoCo Contacts and Teams,

We on the LoCo Council are being faced with the challenge of replacing 
two of our current Council members. A special thanks to Paolo and Greg 
for all of the great contributions they have made while serving with us 
on the LoCo Council.

Towards the end of last October, we put out a call for nominations for 
re-staffing the LoCo Council. Due to the amount of time that has passed, 
we thought it would be good to make another call for nominations. This 
new call for nominations would help ensure those who were nominated or 
had expressed an interest in being a part of the LoCo Council, would 
still have both the time and desire to join our team.

So with that in mind, we are writing this e-mail to ask for volunteers 
to step forward and nominate themselves or another contributor for the 
two open positions. The LoCo Council is defined on our wiki page.

Team Agenda:

Typically, we meet up once a month in IRC to go through items on the 
team agenda. This involves approving new LoCo  Teams, Re-approval of 
Approved LoCo Teams, resolving issues within Teams, approving LoCo Team 
mailing list requests, and anything else that comes along.

We have the following requirements for Nominees:
   - Be an Ubuntu member
   - Be available during typical meeting times of the council
   - Insight into the culture(s) and typical activities within teams is 
a plus
Here is a descriptionof the current LoCo Council:

They are current Ubuntu Members with a proven track record of activity 
in the community. They have shown themselves over time to be able to 
work well with others, and display the positive aspects of the Ubuntu 
Code of Conduct. They should be people who can judge contribution 
quality without emotion while engaging in an interview/discussion that 
communicates interest, a welcoming atmosphere, and which is marked by 
humanity, gentleness, and kindness.

If this sounds like you, or a person you know, please e-mail the LoCo 
Council with your nomination(s) using the following e-mail address:  
loco-council<at>  Please include a few lines about 
yourself, or whom you're nominating, so we can get a good idea of why 
you/they'd like to join the council, and why you feel that you/they 
should be considered. If you plan on nominating another person, please 
let them know, so they are aware.

The time frame for this process is as follows:

Nominations will open: August31, 2012

Nominations will close: September13, 2012

We will then forward the nominations to the CC, Requestingthey take the 
following week to make their selections (hopefully by their meeting on 
September 20,2012).

Date new council members will be announced: September 21, 2012

Thanks for your time,

Chris Crisafulli
On behalf of the LoCo Council
