The 2016 Fall Executive Committee (EC) Elections will be starting 30 August, beginning with the opening of the nominations period of the Elections. This is the first election under the newest version of the JCP, JCP v 2.10. This version of the JCP broadens the membership, by introducing the Partner Membership for Java User Groups (JUG) and the Associate Membership for Individuals. In addition, there are now 2 seats on the JCP EC designated as Associate seats. The JCP will accept nominations for the 6 Elected and 2 Associate seats from 30 August through 12 September. In order to nominate yourself for an EC seat, you must be either a Full or Partner Member. Full and Partner Members vote for the Ratified and Elected seats. Associate Members vote for the Associate seats. The ballot will be open from 1-14 November. The results will be available on jcp.org on 15 November.
