Welcome Mohi

*New Meeting Times and RMB Positions:*

The Asia-Oceania RMB is undergoing restaffing. We are expanding to run two
meetings to better accomodate our wide range of timezones. We require
nominations for one position available for meetings at 9:00 UTC +-1hr and
nominations for three positions available for meetings run at 1400 UTC.

We have the following requirements for nominees:

 - be an Ubuntu member
 - be confident that you can judge contributions to various parts of our
 - be available during typical meeting times of the board in question
 - insight into the culture(s) and typical activities within a geographic
region covered by the board is a plus

Those sitting on membership boards are people who are insightful. 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 discern character and 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. 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 complete application rather than feeling
discouraged or hurt.

If you wish to nominate someone, or yourself, send an email to
ubuntu-membership-board-asia-oceania at Try to explain your
nomination.  All nominations will be forwarded to the Community Council who
will make the final decision. Applications will close 1-NOV-2010. If you
require help or advice speak to a memeber of the board or your friendly
Community Council members.

 Leadership is responsibility, not privilege, Action, not position,
Guidance, not knowledge, and outcome, not disposition.
