Hello All,

As you may know the LoCo council members are set with a two years term, due
this situation we are facing the difficult task of replacing Bhavani. A
special thanks to Bhavani for all of the great contributions he had made
while serving with us on the LoCo Council.

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

Wiki: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LoCoCouncil

Team Agenda: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LoCoCouncilAgenda

Typically, we meet up once a month in IRC to go through items on the team
agenda also we started to have Google Hangouts too (The time for hangouts
may vary depending the availability of the members time). 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: September 18th, 2014

Nominations will close: October 2nd, 2014

We will then forward the nominations to the CC, Requesting they take the
following their next meeting to make their selections.
