Dear Squeakers,

This is primarily a reminder for *nominating board member candidates*!
The deadline for nominations is 22nd February and that is VERY SOON! For
the full schedule, see below.

Our current nominees are:

	Bert Freudenberg (serving on the board currently)
	Yoshiki Ohshima  (serving on the board currently)

Both Bert and Yoshiki were nominated by Kim Rose, VPRI.

Every year we elect the Squeakfoundation Board
(http://www.squeak.org/Foundation) consisting of seven members from our
community. The exact duties of this board is not fully defined and there
are definitely varying ideas on how it should work and what we expect
from it - this is also why it is so important for us all to nominate
candidates and to lket the candidates present their views and ideas!

For more information about the board, see Ron's recent email:


Let me remind us all of the schedule:

Now through 22nd February (circa 8 days!!!!!): Nominations of board
	Candidates should nominate themselves on the squeak-dev mailing list.
	Or if you nominate someone else, make sure that person really wants
	to run. :)

22nd February to 29th February: Campaigning period
	During this period the candidates should ideally present themselves
	and the community can ask questions. We will probably organise some
	form of structured Q&A activity - details to follow soon.
