Renewed call for nominees – IRC Council

The Community Council would like to renew the call for nominations for the staffing of the IRC Council. The IRC Council consists of five members and three seats are currently vacant. The Community Council will be working closely with the IRC Council over the coming 6-12 months and it is an exciting time for the IRC community. We would really like to see some more nominees come forward with a passion for improving governance and user experience in our IRC channels, which are essential resources in the Ubuntu community as a whole.

If you are interested in the Ubuntu IRC world and in improving and sustaining transparent and healthy governance in this area, we would like to hear from you. The only preconditions for nominees are that you be an Ubuntu member and that you be passionate about improving IRC governance, in particular in the areas outlined by the CC as their principal governance expectations

In order to nominate yourself to be considered for the role, please prepare a brief summary on your personal wiki page of your contributions to the Ubuntu project generally (which you may have already as a result of becoming an Ubuntu member) and include in the page some details about your personal plans and ideas for Ubuntu’s IRC world. Testimonials regarding your IRC experience within the Ubuntu community are also welcome.

Then simply email your name and wiki page to the IRC Council at irc-council at All nominations will be passed onto the Community Council. Alternatively you can email the Community Council directly at community-council at

Nominations will be accepted until Friday, 11 December 2009. Feel free to encourage others to apply if you feel they would be a good nominee.
