Hi all,

The current IRC council was formed at the end of 2011, which means our 
two year term is up at the end of December 2013.
Details about the IRC Council and its charter may be viewed here 
Council members normally serve a two year term, and may stand for 
multiple terms.

 From the wiki page the election process is as follows:

Appointment Process
Elections of new IRC Council members will be held in the following way:
An open call for nominations should be announced in the IRC Community, 
and people can nominate themselves for a seat on the council. Everyone 
is welcome to apply.
To apply for a seat the candidate creates a Wiki page outlining their 
work in the community, and inviting others to provide testimonials.
When the application deadline has passed, the IRC Council will review 
the applications and provide feedback on the candidates for the 
Community Council to review.
The Community Council will identify a shortlist for the board and 
circulate the list publically for feedback from the community.
The shortlist identified by the Community Council will be voted upon by 
team members as described at CommunityCouncil/Delegation. Members of the 
Ubuntu IRC Members Team are eligible to vote.
The Community Council will then finalise the appointment of IRC Council 

So you can consider this to be the open call for nominations, everyone 
is welcome to apply, however you do have to be an Ubuntu Member. IRC 
contributions do count towards membership and there is an IRC Council 
meeting between now and voting time, so if you are not currently a 
member but have a history of sustained and significant contributions to 
the Ubuntu project, predominantly through IRC (Providing support and/or 
being an operator) then it is certainly not to late to apply for 
membership and to nominate yourself to the council.
To nominate yourself, create your wiki page and make yourself known to a 
member of the IRC Council. Nominations will be open through November, 
then we will provide the full list of applicants to the community 
council, who will check that the applicants qualify. Should there be 
more applicants than positions then a vote will be announced to take 
place in December.
