Call for Nominations for TEI Board and Council

Call for Nominations (DUE: 2011-09-09)

Dear members of the TEI community,

The Text Encoding Initiative Consortium (TEI-C) invites nominations for election to the TEI-C Board and Council. There will be two terms expiring on the Board and six on the Council. Nominations should be sent to the nomination committee at [nominations at] by September 9, 2011.  Members of the nomination committee this year are John Walsh (chair), Marin Dacos, Kevin Hawkins, and Daniel O’Donnell. The elections will take place via electronic voting prior to the annual Members’ Meeting in October 2011.

Self-nominations are welcome and common. All nominees should provide a brief statement of interest and biographical paragraph, and notice that, if elected, they will be willing to serve.  Example candidates’ biographies from a previous election can be found at

All nominations should include an email address for the nominee and should indicate whether the nomination is for Board or Council.

The TEI-C Board is the governing body for the TEI Consortium, and is responsible for its strategic and financial oversight. The TEI-C Council oversees the technical development of the TEI Guidelines. Service in either group is an opportunity to help the TEI grow and serve its members better.

For more information on the Board please see:

For more information on the Council please see:

TEI-C membership is NOT a requirement to serve on the Board or Council.  Candidates should be familiar with the TEI and should be willing to commit time to discussion, decision-making, and TEI activities. If you have ideas about how to make the TEI stronger or can help it do a better job, please nominate yourself! Or, if you know someone who you think could contribute to TEI, nominate him or her.

Thank you,

John Walsh (for the TEI nominating committee)
