Vote on Term of Office for SVLUG President/Vice-President (Sept 2004)
This vote is now closed.
Feedback we're hearing while looking for candidates for SVLUG President and Vice-President indicate that there may be interest in changing the term of the office from the current two years. Please rank all of the following statements which you agree with at all, in numerical order starting from strongest agreement (1, as in 1st choice) to the number of the last choice with which you agree. (Be honest about whether you'd consider running now or in the future, because it helps distinguish plain opinions from effects on future volunteers. Yes, we might contact you if we have trouble finding candidates. But if you can't help right now, we'll just have to accept no for an answer.)
For more information see the corp.sbay.org Web site.
This poll will close Tuesday, September 7 at 5PM Pacific Time.
Background info: Dan Kionka founded the group originally as a PC Unix SIG in 1988, which quickly became a Linux group in the early 90s. He ran the group for 10 years, until it was ready to fly on its own. The tradition of 2-year terms for the SVLUG President was established when Ben Spade became the first elected SVLUG president, in 1998-1999. Chris DiBona was president in 2000, but had to step down after a year when he was moving out of the area. So the 2-year terms were shifted back a year, to begin in odd-numbered years. Marc Merlin was president in 2001-2002. Don Marti is the current president, serving for the 2003-2004 term.
