Meeting details to follow.

This is a call for candidates for the Board of Directors for PeeringDB.

 - The second half of April, there will be an election for the Board of 
   Directors. Like the last election, BigPulse.com will be used, along 
   with Single-Transferable-Vote (STV). The STV results table will be part 
   of the election results.

 - Candidacies along with max 300 word statements should be submitted to 
   secretary at peeringdb.com prior to April 15th UTC. Anyone can run for 
   election to the Board.

The organization documents (Articles, Bylaws, etc), Board meeting minutes, 
and finances, are up at:


There are 5 members of the Board of Directors, all of which are up for 
election this year.

The Bylaws proscribe staggered Board elections. Based on the BigPulse.com 
STV results, the top two candidates will get Board terms of 2 years, while 
the next three candidates will get Board terms of 1 year. Next year, there 
will be three seats up for election, all with 2 year terms.

Candidates must submit their name and maximum 300 word statement, as 
determined by the POSIX "LANG=en_US.UTF-8 wc -w" command, by April 14th
