Nominations have now closed. See the Candidates!

This update contains important details about "Meet the candidate" sessions, who can vote and how to vote. I would like to extend a huge thank you to all the candidates for putting themselves forward. Their names, with links to their profiles, and nominations are at the end of this post.

Board members for the Drupal association are selected in two ways. Most board members are people recommended by the nominating committee to bring specific skills and experience to the table. However two members are elected by the community. These elections are designed to fill those two community "At Large" positions.

Meet the Candidate Sessions

Note: If you are a candidate and none of these times work for you please let Donna Benjamin (kattekrab) know as soon as you can.

Meetings are scheduled to take place at these times using IRC and the Drupal Association teleconference facility.

Hey - so i did a little bit of thinking (...)

How about we use a #votedrupal for filtering all the twitter noise?
That would make it easy to figure out whats going on + we dont drive people totally crazy with all this "vote vote vote vote"

Anyways its a suggestion. Use it if you like, im gonna :)
