Please post the following call for nominations to the Fridge:

Title: Ubuntu Membership Board call for nominations

As you may know, [Ubuntu Membership](
is a recognition of 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.

We have seven members of our boards expiring from their terms , which
means we need to do some restaffing of this [Membership

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 community
- 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 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 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 complete 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 You will want to include some information about the
nominee, a launchpad profile link and which time slot (20:00 or 22:00)
the nominee will be able to participate in.

We will be accepting nominations through Friday May 26th at 12:00 UTC.
At that time all nominations will be forwarded to the Community Council
who will make the final decision and announcement.

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