U2UG Elections 2010 – Request For Comment


To the nominees in the U2UG Election, as well as the incoming President,

Let me first state that I’m extremely appreciative of the time and effort that the members of the U2UG Board have and are putting in for the benefit of the community. For a community to be sustained and grow, the community needs leaders to give it direction, to foster innovation and to support facilities that enable the community to learn, share and interact.

Without a community of active developers and product champions, a development stack will stagnate, no new solutions will emerge and hence employment opportunities for those skilled in the stack will eventually diminish.

So it makes sense that when we have the privilege of voting for community leaders, an educated decision based not only upon their credentials, but the direction they aspire to lead the community in, that we should make the most of out.

For these reasons I have a few questions for the two gentleman who have nominated for Vice President (Charles Barouch & David Jordan). Understanding the incoming President’s (Laura Hirsh) thoughts on these questions would be also be beneficial.

I understand this is a lot of questions to answer in the short time before the voting closes, but your answers will us understand vote exactly we are voting for.


PS: Should the two nominating for ‘Member at Large’ wish to answer, their thoughts would be greatly appreciated as well.
