The Community Council of CiviCRM has been tasked at the Barcelona Civi Summit:
“Our community is the cornerstone on which CiviCRM is built, we will hold elections to establish a body charged with coalescing the ideas, opinions and values of the community, nurturing our intra-community relations and protecting our community as a safe space to collaborate on our overall aim of providing a world-class open-source CRM aimed at doing global good.”
The Community Council will work closely together with the Core Team to support and guide the community. As this will be a new body we will elect 11 members, 5 for two years and 6 for one year. In the future there will be a rotation schedule and each member will sit for two years.
The instructions and timeline for the voter registration and nomination process will be announced shortly so watch this space!
