The OpenJDK Governing Board manages the structure and operation of the
OpenJDK Community [1].  It has two At-Large Members who serve for a term
of one calendar year, starting on the first day of April each year [2].

The two-week nomination period for candidates to fill those seats is now
open.  It will end at 16:00 UTC on Thursday, 15 March 2012 [3].

During this time any OpenJDK Member [4] may nominate an individual who
does not currently hold an appointed Governing Board seat to fill one of
the At-Large seats.  That individual need not already be an OpenJDK
Member.  An OpenJDK Member may make more than one such nomination.

To nominate someone, send an e-mail message to members at
with the subject line "GB Nomination: $NAME", where $NAME is the full
name of the person you're nominating.  Use the body of the message to
make the best case you can for your nominee.

Nominees must accept their nominations by the start of voting.  Those
who do accept will be invited to submit short candidate statements to
be posted on the election page [5].

Voting will start on Friday, 16 March 2012 and run for two weeks.  All
OpenJDK Members are eligible to vote.  Detailed information on voting
logistics will be available shortly.
