FAmSCo Election 2009: Nominations are open!

Sirs, it’s election time!

Apart from the jokes, this is an important moment for the life of the project, especially for Ambassadors.

With this election Ambassadors will be called to choose 7 people, who will represent and manage more than 700 other ones from all over the world.

If you run, you could became a FAmSCo member!

Like any challenge, it has its difficulties but, if you are motivated and if you like to make your voice heard, you’ll find it as one of the most exciting and marvelous experience.

Is there any requirement? Passion and self commitment. With these two ingredients you’ll be able to face this job. Experience, naturally, will give you an important help.

What are the steps required in order to run for it?

First of all, add you name in the nomination wiki page (just click here).

In this page you’ll be able to explain the vision you have for the project, your ideas and the goals you want to achieve.

Don’t worry, it’s not required to write something complicate. Just write what you think, even if it’s only a brief sentence. Remember: sometime a word is worth 10000 words.

The deadline to nominate yourself is November 16th.

It’s normal to have doubts, but you haven’t to be feared of not being elected. The most important element is be there. Express your ideas! Make your opinion relevant!  You’ll be important just because you will run!

Everybody, at the end of the race, will win: candidates, even if not elected; Ambassadors and the whole Fedora Project.

What are the next steps?

I’ll write about them later this week and during the next ones. Thanks to John (inode0) this is the schedule for the upcoming weeks:

* November 10-16: Nominations are open.
* November 17-23: Candidate questionnaires.
* November 27 – December 3: IRC Town Hall-style discussions with candidates for the various elected positions will be arranged.
* December 8-15: The elections will take place.

P.S. Just a reminder for whoever want to organize/join a fedora 12 Release Event: visit http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/F12_release_events.
