Dear AFFS Members,
If you were dying to be involved more actively in the AFFS, but didn't
know how, this could be your chance! As discussed at the AGM (OT:
minutes & report forthcoming, apologies for the delay...), we are
looking for people to join the exec committee of the AFFS.
Ideally, we are looking for people with a reasonable amount of free
time, dedication to Free Software, and the ability to help us organise
events, press releases, co-ordinate with other organisations, all sorts.
It may be that you wish to focus on a specific campaign, or you wish to
help us generally, either could be good. We aren't looking for people to
fill specific posts, so the ability to take ownership of a particular
area is definitely there if it's something new for us.
Apart from the commitment to promote free software (and, not promote
proprietary software), the other constitutional commitment is that you
must attend committee meetings, which happen around four times a year.
Obviously, we would also want you to be doing things above and beyond
that, but that is the absolute minimum - so, if you can't even commit to
that, this probably isn't for you. Rewards include meeting new people,
being involved in some exciting work and all-round general good karma.
Clearly, you are now desperate to nominate yourself! So, how to do it?
First, you have to be a full member of the AFFS. You also need to submit
your nomination to us in writing - email to affs-ctte at affs.org.uk is
sufficient. You don't need to be seconded, but including your 'platform'
(i.e., why people should elect you) is useful. At some point in the
future (this call for nominations will last for two weeks) we will then
