Dear Haskellers,

Another year of the haskell.org committee is drawing to a close and it is
therefore time to seek replacements for those members whose term is
expiring. This year three members are retiring, Edward Z. Yang, Vo Minh
Thu, and Mark Lentczner. The rest of the committee would like to thank them
for their excellent service.

To nominate yourself, please send an e-mail to committee at haskell.org by
29 October 2013. The retiring members are eligible to re-nominate

Please feel free to include any information about yourself that you think
will help us to make a decision.

Being a member of the committee does not require a significant amount of
time, but committee members should aim to be responsive during discussions
when the committee is called upon to make a decision. Strong leadership,
communication, and judgement are very important characteristics for
committee members. The role is about setting policy, providing
direction/guidance for the Haskell.org infrastructure, planning for the
long term, and being fiscally responsible with the Haskell.org funds (and
donations).  As overseers for policy regarding the open source side of
Haskell, committee members must also be able to set aside personal or
business related bias and make decisions with the good of the open source
Haskell community in mind.

More details about the committee's roles and responsibilities are on


If you have any questions about the process, please feel free to e-mail us
at committee at haskell.org or to contact one of us individually.
