As you may know, Ubuntu Membership (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Membership) is
a recognition of a significant and sustained contribution to Ubuntu and the
Ubuntu community. To this end, the Community Council recruits from our
current member community for the valuable role of reviewing and evaluating
the contributions of potential members to bring them on board or assist
with having them achieve this goal.

Our board members have now expired, and we are looking to restaff our 12:00
and 20:00 UTC Membership Boards (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Membership/Boards)
with seven new members for each board.

We have the following requirements for nominees:

* be an Ubuntu Member (preferably for some time)
* be confident that you can evaluate contributions to various parts of our
* be committed to attending the membership meetings broad insight into the
Ubuntu community at large is a plus

Additionally, those sitting on membership boards should have a proven track
record of activity in the community. They have shown themselves over time
to work well with others and display the Ubuntu Code of Conduct's positive
aspects. They should be people who can discern character and evaluate
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. Even when they
must deny applications, they should do so in such a way that applicants
walk away with a sense of hopefulness and a desire to return with a more
elaborate application rather than feeling discouraged or hurt.

To nominate yourself or somebody else (please confirm they wish to accept
the nomination and state you have done so), please send a mail to the
Membership Boards mailing list (ubuntu-membership-boards at lists.ubuntu.com).
You will want to include some information about the nominee, a Launchpad
profile link, and which time slot (12:00 or 20:00) the nominee will be able
to participate with.

We will be accepting nominations through Tuesday, November 17th, at 23:59
UTC. At that time, the Membership Board will forward all nominations to the
Community Council, who will make the final decision and announcement.

Thanks in advance to the dedication everybody has put into their roles as
board members.
