Ubuntu Membership Board call for nominations extended

Back on February 17th I put out a call for nominations for the Ubuntu Membership Board.

Unfortunately we have not gathered enough applicants yet to meet our criteria for staffing the board.

As I mentioned in my prior call, this is a valuable role for both the applicant and our community as we recognize the significant and sustained contributions made by fellow contributors to Ubuntu through formal membership, as overseen by this board.

Speaking more personally, a position on a membership board one of the first roles in the international Ubuntu community I was appointed to, and someone else nominated me. So I encourage you reach out to your fellow Ubuntu Members to ask if they wish to be nominated or encourage them self-nominate for a position on the board.

To nominate yourself or somebody else (again, please confirm they wish to accept the nomination and state you have done so), please send a mail to the membership boards mailing list (ubuntu-membership-boards at lists.ubuntu.com). You will want to include some information about the nominee, a launchpad profile link and which time slot (12:00 or 22:00) the nominee will be able to participate in.

Further details, including qualifications to be considered for a position on the board, can be found on the initial call for nominations.

We are extending this call for another 2 weeks, so please have your nominations to the board by Monday March 30th at 12:00 UTC.

To all of those who have already submitted your name for consideration, thank you and we appreciate your patience as we complete this process.
