Dear Haskellers,

We have been overdue for some time in calling for a new round of
nominations to the Haskell.org Committee. We have three members due for
retirement -- Jason Dagit, Edward Kmett, and Brent Yorgey. The committee
would like to thank them for their excellent service.

To nominate yourself, please send an email to committee at haskell.org by
21 April 2015. The retiring members are eligible to re-nominate themselves.

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 necessarily 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 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.
