It is time to put out a call for new nominations (as usual, self-nominations and re-nominations are also welcome) for the Haskell.org committee.
To nominate yourself or one of your friends for a 3-year term (2022-2025), write an email to: [committee at haskell.org] by the 31st of December, 2021. Please feel free to include any information about yourself (e.g., your story; how you want to contribute to Haskell.org) that you think will help us decide.
Committee members do not need to be deep technical Haskell experts. Instead, we look for enthusiasm towards improving the community and a broad representation from different segments of the Haskell world (such as, but not limited to: academia, industry, OSS development, community building). 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.
The role is about setting policy, providing direction/guidance for Haskell.org infrastructure, planning for the long term and being fiscally responsible with the Haskell.org 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 to be available to participate asynchronously in the Haskell.org Slack and mailing lists.
Strong leadership, communication, and judgment are significant characteristics for 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:
If you have any questions about the process, please feel free to email us at [committee at haskell.org], or contact one of us individually.
