View Full Version : Call for Administration Team Members

June 14th, 2007, 05:07 PM
In order to provide redundancy within the PA LoCo Team, I need volunteers to act as administrators for the Forum here, the Launchpad, and the mailing list. The reason for the redundancy is more of a precaution against an inactive administrator and to plan for unforeseen circumstances.

This is not because I am looking to get out! Please do not think that. It was brought up that it is important that the team does not rely too heavily on one individual. Illness and unforeseen personal issues can hit anyone, and I am not exempt by any stretch. There is no reason to think that I will not be able to administer alot of this alone, but it will not only provide back up, but also more input from different regions and perspectives.

Ideally we should have people from across the state involved in the administration of this team. I'd also love to have a good cross section of ages and experience levels.

I've listed the various teams on the wiki. (http://wiki.ubuntu.com/PennsylvaniaTeam) If you are interested in participating just list your name on the individual team pages under the Prospective Members heading. I will the assemble of list of each team's candidates, and then we will post them on the forum with a poll to vote for the people to hold various posts. That way it is a team decision instead of an arbitrary one made by me.

If anyone has questions or suggestions, let's talk about it! Post it here.

I'm up in the NEPA area. Wouldn't ind getting involved. Any particular focus of interest to start with? What would be most imporant - support, getting the word out locally, etc?

We're still looking for more volunteers, so far our volunteers are pretty east-heavy ;) So we'd like to encourage people from all over the state who are interested in volunteering for the admin positions to add yourself to the "prospective" section with a link to your Ubuntu wiki page or Launchpad account so people can get a sense of who you are when voting time comes around.
