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!
