Hello Everyone,

You may have already heard the exciting news that the OpenStack Board of
Directors recently approved the User Committee (UC) bylaws and charter
<https://governance.openstack.org/uc/reference/charter.html>. These
remarkable changes will bring the first elected UC representatives in 2017
and expand the UC to 5 members! Voting for the 2017 UC members will be granted
to the Active User Contributors (AUC).
current UC will continue to serve until the elections and continue with a
6-month seat. This initial election will run to determine the other two
members. Candidates ranking 1st and 2nd place will get one-year seats. In
the fall of 2017, elections will see the normal renewal of 3 seats for a
one-year period.

Open candidacy for the UC positions will be from January 30 - February 10,
05:59 UTC. Voting for the 2017 User Committee (UC) members will be
open on February
13th and will remain open until February 17, 11:59 UTC. Additional details
and the process for nomination can be found here

As a reminder, please see the community code of conduct (

Please let me, or anyone from the UC know if you have any questions,
comments or concerns.

Thank you,

OpenStack User Committee

Shilla, Edgar, Jonathan
