Hello everyone,

The elections for five of the ten members of the Linux Foundation Technical Advisory Board (TAB) are held every year[1]. This year the
election will be at the 2016 Kernel Summit in Santa Fe, NM.

The elections will take place at the conference center on Wednesday Nov 2nd, shortly before the evening Kernel Summit/Plumbers reception. The elections will be open to all attendees of both the Kernel Summit and the Linux Plumbers.

Anyone is eligible to stand for election, simply send your nomination to:

Just before the election, everyone will have a chance to introduce themselves and briefly talk about why they would like to participate on the Technical Advisory Board. This year, we're encouraging everyone to include those details along with their nomination, which we will compile into an online document for quick reference.

The deadline for receiving nominations is up until the beginning of
the event where the election is held. Any statements for the online document need to be sent by Friday Oct 28th. Please remember if
you're not going to be present that things go wrong with both networks
and mailing lists, so get your nomination in early).

Chris Mason, TAB Chair

[1] TAB members sit for a term of two years, and half of the board is up
for election every year. Five of the seats are up for election now.
The other five are halfway through their term and will be up for
election next year.
