Hi Editors for the Fridge, I just copy below the Call for new LoCo Council

Thanks for publishing this.


Pablo Rubianes


Hello All,

We on the LoCo Council are being faced with the challenge of replacing
three of our current Council members. A special thanks to Laura, Chris and
Sergio for all of the great contributions they have made while serving with
us on the LoCo Council.

So with that in mind, we are writing this to ask for volunteers to step
forward and nominate themselves or another contributor for the three open
positions. The LoCo Council is defined on our wiki page.

Wiki: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LoCoCouncil

Team Agenda: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LoCoCouncilAgenda

Typically, we meet up once a month in IRC to go through items on the team
agenda also we started to have Google Hangouts too (The time for hangouts
may vary depending the availability of the members time). This involves
approving new LoCo Teams, Re-approval of Approved LoCo Teams, resolving
issues within Teams, approving LoCo Team mailing list requests, and
anything else that comes along.

We have the following requirements for Nominees:

Be an Ubuntu member

Be available during typical meeting times of the council

Insight into the culture(s) and typical activities within teams is a plus

Here is a description of the current LoCo Council:

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 e-mail the LoCo
Council with your nomination(s) using the following e-mail address:

Please include a few lines about yourself, or whom you’re nominating, so we
can get a good idea of why you/they’d like to join the council, and why you
feel that you/they should be considered. If you plan on nominating another
person, please let them know, so they are aware.

We welcome nominations from anywhere in the world, and from any LoCo team.
Nominees do not need to be a LoCo Team Contact to be nominated for this
post. We are however looking for people who are active in their LoCo Team.

The time frame for this process is as follows:

Nominations will open: August  28th, 2013

Nominations will close: September 18th, 2013

We will then forward the nominations to the CC, Requesting they take the
following week to make their selections (hopefully by their meeting on
September 19th,2013).

Date new council members will be announced: September 20th, 2013
