Nominations for the 2013 JCP Executive Committee (EC) are now open!
This year will be an exciting election since the current EC Members
and any prospective new EC Members will run for election--24 EC seats
will be ratified or elected by the JCP Program Membership. Exact details for
nomination submissions are available on the JCP EC Elections page.
The JCP will accept self-nominations for the 8 Elected Seats through 26
September. JCP Members (JSPA 2 Primary Contacts) should have received messages
with instructions for nominating and their login credentials via email today. You will need this credential information to login and
complete the nomination.
The ballot with nominees for Ratified and Elected seats will be open from 15 October until 28 October. The results will be available on jcp.org on 29 October.
Please plan to attend the JCP BoF session at JavaOne as well as the Meet the Candidates call (Thursday, 10 October at 9:30 AM PDT). We will primarily highlight the elected (vs ratified) candidates at the "Meet the JCP Executive Committee Candidates" (Session ID: BOF4672) at JavaOne on the 24 September at the Hilton in San Francisco (JavaOne Conference pass required). These are both great opportunities for the candidates to present their qualification statements to the eligible voters.
I will be highlighting nominations as they come in on Twitter (@jcp_org), and am looking forward to seeing many JCP members step forward in this nomination process!
