This is an advance heads up about the upcoming SPI board elections.

The formal nomination period will open on Saturday, 1st July 2017 and
run until Wednesday, 12th July 2017. The election, if required, will
then run from Friday, 14th July 2017 until Thursday, 29th July 2017.
Results will be announced on Friday, 30th July 2017.

The primary purpose of this advance notice is to give some time to
people to think about running for a board position. We have 3 seat
available for a 3 year term as board member.

Potential board members should be able to commit to attending the
monthly board meetings, which are conducted publicly via IRC (#spi on
the OFTC network). These take place at 20:00 UTC on the second
Monday of every month. More details, including all past agendas and
minutes, can be found at http://spi-inc.org/meetings/

The ideal candidate will have an existing involvement in the Free and
Open Source community, though this need not be with a project
affiliated with SPI.

Additionally, the board would like to announce the votes will be counted
this year according to Scottish Single Transferrable Vote, thanks to the
updates to SPI's voting software by Jonathan McDowell.

Please do take the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about
SPI board membership on the spi-general mailing list before the formal
nomination period opens. You can also find various board members
present on #spi on irc.spi-inc.org (OFTC).
