Call for Committee Nominations

Alan & Kim Zimmerman
Dear Haskellers,

It is time to put out a call for new nominations (typically but not
necessarily self-nominations) to the 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
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 committee serves as a board of directors for, 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
infrastructure, planning for the long term, and being fiscally
responsible with the 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

If you have any questions about the process, please feel free to
e-mail us at committee at, or contact one of us
