        Subject: Call for nominations to TEI-C board and council

Dear members of the digital humanities community,

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 
September 1, 2010. Members of the nomination committee this year 
are Julia Flanders (chair), Markus Flatscher and Laurent Romary. 
The elections will take place via electronic voting prior to the annual 
Members' Meeting in November 2010.

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 a previous 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, please nominate yourself! Or, if you know
someone who you think could contribute to TEI, nominate him or her.

With best wishes and thanks,

Julia Flanders (for the TEI nominating committee)
