Thanks everyone! :-)


Ubuntu Women Project Team Leadership Options

Below are the options for the team to consider - based on discussions in
December and January: (however if neither of these options are what you
would prefer please add your suggestion to the email or forum thread for
further discussion)


   * *Option 1* - *Single Leader* - Review of the CC appointed leader and a
   formal vote to keep that leader in place or nominate and to choose another
   single leader

   * *Option 2* - *Multiple co-leaders* - 3 leaders who together have
   diverse strengths and span many areas of the community.

UW Project Team Election of Leader(s)


   * Voting Members of the Team will vote on leader (s) in
   another Condorcet poll.

   * You must be listed on the Ubuntu Women LP Team for 1 month prior to
   election date in order to be eligible to vote.

   * Ubuntu-Women Project Team on LP

      * It is important that all Ubuntu Women Project Team members who are
      active in the following areas but have not joined the
Ubuntu-Women Team in
      Launchpad are encouraged to do so:

      * Ubuntu Women Mailing List

      * Ubuntu Women Forums

      * #ubuntu-women and #ubuntu-women-project IRC channels.

   * *May 15th* - The List of the eligible Ubuntu Women Project Team members
   will be put together using the LP list. I have been updating the list from
   the channel poll - so this will not be a hard or time consuming task. It
   will just need to be double checked.

   * *May 15* - After the nominations are closed and the testimonial Phase
   begins 2 people who are NOT seeking the leadership position (s) will need to
   be responsible for the Condorcet poll. Don't worry if you are unfamiliar
   with Condorcet it's easy and we can set up some "mock" polls to make you are
   comfortable and familiar with how it works before the leadership poll is
   schedule to open.

Time line for Ubuntu Women Project Elections


   * *May 1st - May 15th* - *Nominations Phase* - All Ubuntu Women Project
   Team members who would like to be considered for the leadership role(s)
   should complete their nomination wiki's during this time frame.

          * Team members can be self nominated or peer nominated.


   * If you want to nominate someone other than yourself (Peer nominations)
   please double check with them that they are willing to be included and make
   sure they are aware of the time lines and each phase of the Election Process


   * *May 15th and June 1st* - *Testimonial Phase* - Each Nominated Team
   Member should make sure that all testimonials are added by June 1st.

   * *June 1st, close on June 15th* - *Voting Phase* - Condorcet Poll is
