It is time to put out a call for new nominations (typically but not necessarily self-nominations) to the haskell.org committee. We have three members of our committee due for retirement -- Ryan Trinkle, John Wiegley and Alan Zimmerman.
To nominate yourself, please send an email to committee at haskell.org by December 1, 2017. The retiring members are eligible to re-nominate themselves. Please feel free to include any information about yourself that you think will help us to make a decision.
The Haskell.org committee serves as a board of directors for Haskell.org, a 501(c)3 nonprofit which oversees technical and financial resources related to Haskell community infrastructure.
Being a member of the committee does not necessarily require a significant amount of time, but committee members should aim to be responsive during discussions when the committee is called upon to make a decision. Strong leadership, communication, and judgement are very important characteristics for committee members. The role is about setting policy, providing direction/guidance for Haskell.org infrastructure, planning for the long term, and being fiscally responsible with the Haskell.org funds (and donations). As overseers for policy regarding the open source side of Haskell, committee members must also be able to set aside personal or business related bias and make decisions with the good of the open source Haskell community in mind.
We seek a broad representation from different segments of the Haskell world -- including but not limited to those focused on education, those focused on industrial applications, those with background in organizing users-groups, and those focused directly on our technical infrastructure.
