Hello there,

This is a gentle reminder to let you know for those who are interested in
running for the available position of IGC co-coordinator that you have
until this coming Friday, 19 December midnight UTC, to nominate (with the
acceptance of the nominee) or self-nominate.

So far, I have received nominations of or from:

- Analia Aspis
- Arsene Tungali
- Kawsar Uddin

Please let me know if I have forgotten someone. For those still on the
fence (such as Vincent Solomon, Akinremi Peter Taiwo or Kwasi
Boakye-Akyeampong to mention but those who did explicitly show some
interest), I only have one proverbial phrase for you: If I can do it, you
can do it too! So please let me know if you have made up your mind in favor
of a run.

Please find below a recall of instructions I posted earlier for the
candidates. Please make sure you send your candidacy materials to me.

Self-nomination: You do not have to forward it here on the list. You can
send it to me directly or to Deirdre: williams (dot) deirdre (at) gmail
(dot) com

Third-party nomination: Please make sure your prospective nominee accept
your nomination and then you can forward us his or her name as above.
Alternatively, you can make public nomination on the list inviting your
prospective nominee to respond by accepting or declining. Another variant
of the same is that you send us a private email with your prospective
nominee cc'ed on it, asking him or her to accept or decline in a reply to
all, etc.

In any event, all nominees who will have accepted their nomination will be
asked to provide the following information directly to me at kichango (at)
gmail (dot) com (NOT to this list), which will then be uploaded and made
public on the Caucus website by the time the poll starts.

1) Name
2) Country you affiliate yourself with (nationality or residence)
3) Organizational/Network affiliations in the context of CS/Academia or in
the context of ICTs
4) Disclosure of Conflict of Interest, if any.
5) Short Biography (you may also provide a link to your personal website or
your Linkedin page if you have one.)
6) Why you think you would make a good co-coordinator for the IGC
7) Vision for the IGC
8) A picture of you (no more than 50 Kb headshot).

We would be grateful if you can keep your text in 300 words or less.
As I said previously, we hope to receive all nominations by 19th December,
midnight UTC

Best regards,
