|[eclipse.org-committers] 2009 Elections (resend)|
Apologies for the resend. There were a few instances of “2008” that needed to be replaced with “2009”. Thank you to those that pointed out my error.
The following are the key dates for the 2009 elections for your representatives on the Eclipse Foundation Board of Directors.
As of this moment, there will be five elected committer representatives and five elected add-in provider representatives on next year's board. However, under our Bylaws, the final determination will be made based on the total number of strategic members as of February 1, 2009.
The terms of office are from April 1, 2009 to March 31, 2010.
· January 12, 2009: Nominations open. Nominations are to be sent as an email to emo@xxxxxxxxxxx, with the subject "Sustaining Member Nomination" or "Committer Nomination". As soon as possible after an individual is nominated, the Foundation will contact the nominee to confirm their willingness to participate in the election and to serve as a add-in provider representative if elected.

Content must be submitted to the Eclipse Foundation via email no later than Friday, January 30th.
