pfloor,

I have watched http://forums.contribs.org/index.php?topic=39718.0 and no one has come forward.  I am trying to get answers on the process.  Do the incumbents want to run?  Since is it WAY overdue what time limits are put on the election process now? Shouldn't the Communications Manger (whoever he is) run this show?  Who are the people in the positions now?  I searched the wiki & forums and couldn't find any info on it. Since you want candidates, go to
http://forums.contribs.org/index.php?topic=39718.0 as I will nominate Garrett for BM there not here as requested by Greg.

Would it be an idea to establish SLAs for all disciplines? Meaning, expectations, reporting, quality, protocol etc?

What are the positions available? The constitution states 5 board members, being 3 from SME and 2 from the Corporate Sponsor.
I read the  03 directives, and also read the questions from the other topic about the costs and time taken to run the position.
Can anyone already involved, or that have being involved in the upcoming positions, please post what it takes to fill it?
I've been a SME user since 2002, after my involvement with Mitel through AT&T, I love the distribution and I would love to help. But without knowing the exact needs it becomes hard to get involved.

Thanks,

1) Who votes?
2) When is the vote?
3) I've counted 3 nominees for business manager but nothing for other positions. Is this right?
4) How about a resume page for each of the nominees?

That's a good idea. For instance, I'd expect to see the Business Manager actually produce a business plan. I still haven't seen one from the incumbent. I'd expect the Development Manager to produce a number of releases. We did see those from the previous Development Manager.

Ray: I'm not sure I understand your point - but please do add some detail as I'm sure that you either 1) misunderstand 2) seem to have an issue that I'd love to have detailed.

I think a smilie at the end of the sentence Ray quoted might have eased his concerns. I didn't take you as seriously intending to run just to prove a point to me :-)

Garrett, could you translate that into English please. I have no idea what you are trying to say.

I am really interested at being involved.

Richard, thanks for you interest in SME
Did you nominate for a specific position, if not I nominate you for Communications Manager.

I second that nomination, Richard clearly has a track record of both development & promotion that SME Server could benefit from.
