The Local Communities (LoCo) Council has been vacant for some time and
has not been restaffed due to a vacant Community Council. Since the
Community Council has now been newly elected, a nomination for the LoCo
Council is now being announced.

and helping out LoCo Teams worldwide. Their members have two-year terms,
and we have seven open seats at the Council. The eligibility

The LoCo Council usually meets once a month in IRC and has discussions
on its mailing list. 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 send your
nominations to community-council at lists.ubuntu.com.
Please include the name, Launchpad ID, and Ubuntu Wiki page for whom you
are nominating, as well as a few lines about the nominee, so the
Community Council can get an idea of why you/they would like to join the
Council and why you/they would like to be considered. If you nominate
someone else, please make sure that they are aware of their nomination.
The Community Council welcomes nominations from all over the world and
from any LoCo Team, verified or not. Nominees do not need to be Team
Contacts or Team Leads. However, they need people active on their teams
and naturally must be current Ubuntu Members.
Nominations are now open and will close on Thursday, November 12, 2020
at 23:59 UTC. After that, the Community Council will review the
submissions and appoint the new LoCo Council members.
Please do not hesitate to share this post with anyone you think deserves
to be on the LoCo Council.
On behalf of the Community Council
