Hi Folks…
First, thanks go to Walter for resending the message we sent out two days ago.  If you didn't receive it, but did receive the copy Walter sent, please check to see if there is a problem with your email. Then, let us know right away so we can be sure you receive all other communications from the membership/election committee.
Probably the best way to do this is to use the link for the membership/election committee:
Additionally, if you know of anyone else who did not receive either the survey or the email we sent out on Dec 15, please pass this note on to them. And, if there are people you know who should be SugarLabs members, but are not, please encourage them to apply before the January 3 deadline.

I am forwarding this message from the Membership Team since it was somehow misdirected to numerous SPAM folders. I am hoping this message gets through.

                                  Dear Sugar Labs Members
                                        and Friends,

                                  It looks like we are
                                        finally getting a slate of
                                        candidates for the upcoming
                                        SLOBs election. The Election
                                        committee has concurred that we
                                        will close both the candidate
                                        list and membership list on
                                        January 3, 2016. This is a firm
                                        deadline. The election will take
                                        place the week of January 17-23,
                                        with board members terms
                                        beginning the first week of
                                        February 2016. Candidates
                                        statements must also be posted
                                        on the wiki by the January 3

                                        election/membership committee is
                                        reviewing the membership list,
                                        using your responses to the
                                        survey sent out to all members.
                                        The official list for voting
                                        purposes will now include only
                                        those who have actually replied
                                        that they want to be active or have
                                        applied to the committee for
                                        membership. You still have until
                                        Jan 3 to return your survey or
                                        apply for membership.

                                  People who replied that
                                        they wish to cancel
                                        their membership will not appear
                                        on the voter list. People who
                                        have not responded have also
                                        been removed. But, if you are
                                        one of those people you can be
                                        added back to the list if we get
                                        your response by January 3. 

                                  Please check the list
                                        before January 3 and, if you
                                        find any errors with your name,
                                        contact the committee
                                        immediately so corrections can
                                        be made in time for the



                                        have been some concerns about
                                        the candidates list, with people
                                        who are not members of the
                                        election/membership committee
                                        adding and taking away names. As
                                        with all wikis, ours allows
                                        this. Anyone
                                        who is an active member of Sugar
                                        Labs may add their own name as a
                                        If you wish to run, and are
                                        having difficulties with the
                                        wiki, please contact the
                                        election/membership committee
                                        for help and we will make sure
                                        you are correctly entered.

                                        The list of candidates who have
                                        declared intention to run is at
                                        the link below. Each candidate
                                        needs to make sure their
                                        platform is linked by January 3.


                                  We also hope that some
                                        of you, who have not yet applied
                                        for membership, will consider
                                        taking this opportunity to do so
                                        by January 3, so you will be
                                        able to cast your votes for your
                                        choices of candidates. To join,
