Call for Committee Nominations [the 2023-2025 term]

Dear Haskellers,
The Committee is happy to announce that we are opening the call for nominations for new members to serve for the 2023-2025 term.

Who is Eligible?
Anyone who is interested in helping support the Haskell community is encouraged to self-nominate. You don’t need to have deep technical expertise in Haskell to serve on the committee, although some experience with Haskell and the Haskell community will be helpful. Previous nominees who have not served, former committee members, and current committee members whose terms will end in 2022 are all eligible for re-nomination. We aim to represent the various facets of “the Haskell society”, to be diverse in terms of industry or research and gender, race, and location.

What’s Involved?
Being a member of the committee means setting policy, providing direction/guidance for infrastructure, planning for the long term, and being fiscally responsible with the funds (and donations). Being a member of the committee does not necessarily require a significant amount of time, but members should aim to be responsive during discussions when the committee is called upon to make a decision. You should be able to attend our hour-long call once a month and be available to participate asynchronously in the Slack and mailing lists.

Strong leadership, communication, and judgment are significant characteristics of committee members. As overseers for policy regarding the open-source side of Haskell, the committee members must also be able to set aside personal or business-related bias and make decisions with the good of the open-source Haskell community in mind. More details about the committee’s roles and responsibilities are on: Committee

How Can I Nominate Myself, or Someone Else?
Please email self-nominations to [committee at]. No particular format is required, but include any information that you think is relevant and will help us make the best decision. Similarly, if you wish to nominate someone else please send an email to [committee at] and, if possible, include the nominee in the email so that we know they are aware of their nomination.

What is the Deadline?
We are waiting for submissions till December 31st, 2022.

What is the Status of My Submission?
You will get a confirmation of your submission and insights of the final verdict via email.

I Have Questions
If you have any questions about eligibility, the role, and responsibilities, or the nomination process please reach out to [committee at] or contact any member of the committee individually.
