Subject: Call for nominations to TEI-C Board and TEI-C Council
This message was originally submitted by cwittern at GMAIL.COM to the humanist
list at LISTS.PRINCETON.EDU. If you simply forward it back to the list, using a
mail command that generates "Resent-" fields (ask your local user support or
consult the documentation of your mail program if in doubt), it will be
distributed and the explanations you are now reading will be removed
automatically. If on the other hand you edit the contributions you receive into
a digest, you will have to remove this paragraph manually. Finally, you should
be able to contact the author of this message by using the normal "reply"
function of your mail program.

The Text Encoding Initiative Consortium (TEI-C) invites nominations
for election to the TEI-C Board and Council. Nominations should be
sent to the nomination committee at [nominations at tei-c.org] by July
1, 2009. Members of the nomination committee this year are Julia Flanders,
Malte Rehbein and Christian Wittern (chair). The elections will take place
via electronic voting prior to the annual Members' Meeting in November 2009.
Self-nominations are welcome and common. All nominees should provide a
brief statement of interest and biographical paragraph, and notice
that, if elected, they will be willing to serve. Example candidates'
biographies from last year's election can be found at
All nominations should include an email address for the nominee and
should indicate whether the nomination is for Board or Council.
The TEI-C Board is the governing body for the TEI Consortium, and is
responsible for its strategic and financial oversight. The TEI-C
Council oversees the technical development of the TEI
Guidelines. Service in either group is an opportunity to help the TEI
grow and serve its members better.
For more information on the Board please see:
For more information on the Council please see:
TEI-C membership is NOT a requirement to serve on the Board or
Council. Candidates should be familiar with the TEI and should be
willing to commit time to discussion, decision-making, and TEI
activities. If you have ideas about how to make the TEI stronger or
can help it do a better job, nominate yourself! Or, if you know
someone who you think could contribute to TEI, nominate him or her!
