The Perl Foundation needs new blood. Jim Brandt writes:
Have you ever wanted to get involved in The Perl Foundation, but didn't know how? Well, now's your chance. I'm pleased to announce open self-nominations for the following TPF roles:
You can follow the links above to read descriptions of each of the positions. If you think you're a good fit for one or more of them, send me an email at cbrandt at perlfoundation dot org. I'll then invite you to a dedicated wiki we have set up just for the election.
Once you join the wiki, you'll set up a page to post all of your experience and answer the questions provided in each section above. The wiki is private, but you'll be able to see the other candidate pages, and they'll see yours.
The deadline to get all of your information in is midnight next Tuesday, March 11. Our committees elect their members, so the Conferences Committee will be voting on the CC chair and the Steering Committee will vote on the chair and PR positions. After we have a chance to look over everyone's information, we vote and select our newest members.
You only have a week, so don't wait too long. I look forward to hearing from you.
Karen Pauley is stepping up to run for Steering Committee chair, so how about you? Maybe that's a spot you'd like to work on, or maybe public relations is more up your alley. This is your chance to help lead TPF lead Perl and Perl development.
Astute followers of TPF will note that the PR spot is open, a spot that I once held. Yes, I am no longer doing PR for TPF. I've done that job for a while, and now I'm moving on to do other things, not least of which is this little news called perlbuzz.com.
