Last month, the Steering Committee announced a special election to amend the procedure for Steering Committee elections. The election itself will take place next week (Oct 17-21, 2016). All members will receive a ballot via email to cast their vote regarding this revision via electionbuddy. Please take a moment to check the current membership list and contact us by email to let us know of any omissions. As per our bylaws, our membership includes any certified instructor who has taught at least twice in the past two years (i.e., since October 2014) or has made other significant contributions to Software Carpentry in the opinion of the Steering Committee.
