Hi All,

It's that time again. Time to raise your voices and elect your leaders! Can
you believe it's been a year already?

It's a time for you to stand up, help your community and volunteer to serve!

Squeak wants you!

Every year we elect the SOB (Squeak Oversight Board) consisting of seven
members from our community. The current board members are:

1. Bert Freudenberg
2. Eliot Miranda
3. Tim Rowledge
4. David T. Lewis
5. Marcel Taeumel
6. Craig Latta
7. Nicolas Cellier

For more info on the board please see:


Everything about the election, including schedule and more, can be tracked

Now until Monday 21nd of January 3 PM (20.00 UTC): Nominations of SOB
members and campaigning!

Candidates should nominate themselves and start their campaign on the
squeak-dev mailing list. Or if you nominate someone else, make sure that
person really wants to run. :) I will not put anyone on the candidate list
until that person makes it known on squeak-dev that he/she intends to run.

During this period, the candidates should ideally present themselves on
squeak-dev, unless they have already done so, and the community can ask

I encourage you to reach out to potential candidates, people that are
active in the community and represent your views, and ask them to run. Some
people will not run without encouragement.  Also, I know that some people
wait to the last minute to run for the board to see if others will run but
please consider getting this year off to a faster start and just jump right


Now until Monday 21nd of January 3 PM (20.00 UTC): Nominations of SOB
members and campaigning!
Monday 21nd of January 2019 3 PM (20.00 UTC): Candidate list is finalized.
Monday 21nd of January 2019 4 PM (21.00 UTC): Online election starts.
Tuesday 5th of February 2019 4 PM (23.00 UTC): Online election ends.
Results will be announced immediately when the election ends.
The voting period is two week long and ballots are sent out via email.

And how do you end up on the voter list? See below. :)

IMPORTANT: New voters will NOT be added once the election is started. You
MUST try to get on the voter list before the 21st of January 2019 or you
will NOT be able to vote. If your Email has changed please try to make sure
it is changed on the list of voters before the election starts.


If you were invited to vote last year you are already on the voter list, no
worries! If you are a new Squeaker and wish to vote you should do ONE of
the following:

      * Get a "known" Squeaker to vouch for you. If a known Squeaker sends
an email to voters (at) squeak.org giving me a name and email for you, then
I will add you.

      * Send an email to voters at squeak.org yourself (and CC to
squeak-dev if you like) with information/arguments showing me that you are
indeed serious about voting and that you are indeed a Squeaker.

When the voting period starts all voters will receive an email with
instructions and a link to the voting website.

If there are any further questions, just reply *in this thread* and I will
closely track it - or send email to voters (at) squeak.org which points to

...so let's get on with it!

All the best,

Ron Teitelbaum
