This is a reminder that nominations for the SPI Board Election are due
tomorrow -- on Wednesday, July 12.

The original call for nominations is here:

As per our by-laws[0] and resolution 2004-08-10-dbg.2[1], three board
seats are up for election for a three-year term. These are currently
held by:

* Martin Michlmayr
* Vacant position caused by the early resignation of Andrew Tridgell
* Vacant position caused by the early resignation of Dimitri John Ledkov

Anyone who wishes to run for any of these seats, including any
interested incumbents, is asked to send a position statement to me,
Valerie Young, at secretary at GPG signed mail is

These position statements will be collected until the end of Wednesday,
12th July 2017. Third-party nominations need to be endorsed by the
candidate and position statements are still required.

If sufficient nominations are received to require a vote this will take
place from the 14th to the 29th of July.

After the election results are posted, the Board will select from among
its number the officers (president, VP, treasurer, secretary).

The board would like to thank Andrew Tridgell and Dimitri John Ledkov
for generously offering to resign early to reset the election of board
members to three per year. This was necessary after the election of five
new board members in 2016. They are both free to run again in the 2017
elections for a new three year term.
