Hi All,

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.

The LoCo Council is a board of people who are in charge of empowering 
and helping out LoCo Teams worldwide. Their members have two-year terms, 
and we have seven open seats at the Council. The eligibility 
requirements are:

- Be an Ubuntu Member

- Insight into the culture(s) and typical activities of LoCo teams is a 

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
