Every six months we have an election for a new chairperson and a new
treasurer of Manchester Free Software. The time has come for this
election process to start again.

I have been proud to be the chairperson of Manchester Free Software
for the last 12 months. During that time I feel that we have achieved
a lot, with plenty of exciting talks, two Software Freedom Day events
and participation with local community groups. However, I feel that
the time has come for me to step aside and let someone else direct the
group. I do intend to stay involved though and you'll still see me at

On a similar note, Matthew Morten has been the treasurer for
Manchester Free Software over this last year and is also stepping

Candidate nominations for both positions are now open. People may
nominate for themselves or others. Nominations should be sent to both
address@hidden and address@hidden Nominations must be
submitted before Friday 16th October.

The chairperson is responsible for meetings, general co-ordination and
is the group representative at various events. The treasurer handles
the finances for the group as well as potentially dealing directly
with the bank (although the plans for a bank account have been put on
hold). As a result, the treasurer should be over 18 years of age.

There will be a short period to confirm whether those nominated will
be standing. The candidates will then be announced on or by Monday
19th October.

The voting schedule is as follows:
* Nominations submited before Friday 16th October.
* Voting opens on Tuesday 20th October.
* Votes to be submitted before Wednesday 4th November.
* Votes tallied, announced.
* Admin meeting + handovers on 9th November.

Further details regarding the voting will be sent out nearer the time.
