Dear All,

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

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 description of 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:

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.

We welcome nominations from anywhere in the world, and from any LoCo
team. Nominees do not need to be a LoCo Team Contact to be nominated
for this post. We are however looking for people who are active in
their LoCo Team.

The time frame for this process is as follows:

Nominations will open: April 5th, 2013.

Nominations will close: April 19th, 2013.

We will then forward the nominations to the CC, Requesting they take
the following week to make their selections (hopefully by their
meeting on April 25th,2013).

Date new council members will be announced: April 26th 2013.

On behalf of the Loco council,

Bhavani Shankar
