Dear Haskellers,

It is time to put out the call for new volunteers to the haskell.org
committee. We have one member due for retirement since this past October:
Gershom Bazerman. The committee would like to thank him for his excellent

To nominate yourself, please send an email to committee at haskell.org by
March 4, 2016. 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 contact one of us individually.

Thank you,
John Wiegley                  GPG fingerprint = 4710 CF98 AF9B 327B B80F
