Another year of the haskell.org committee is drawing to a close and it is therefore time to seek replacements for those members whose term is expiring. This year three members are retiring, Edward Z. Yang, Vo Minh Thu, and Mark Lentczner. The rest of the committee would like to thank them for their excellent service.
To nominate yourself, please send an e-mail to committee at haskell.org by 29 October 2013. 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.
Being a member of the committee does not 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 the 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.
