The nomination timeline has been extended till November 11th to allow for more interested to put their name, or the name of someone they think would be a great fit.
As my 5th anniversary as team representative nears (we have not been good about the whole “changing frequently” aspect of team representatives, although we also haven’t had a demand for it either), it does appear that time is upon us, prompted by a reminder for all teams to do their rotations.
So that means we’ll be looking towards our new team representative, and who that might be, put your hat in the box (or something along those lines), if you’d like to be the new representative for the support team.
Nominations will remain open until November 11th 2021 (do not be bothered by timezones, if it isn’t November 11th in your timezone, you’ve still got time!)
It is not restricted to only those who are moderators, administrators, or use the global forums, representatives could be from any part of our community. It is beneficial if it’s someone with some experience within the support team, but we also have a lot of international sites with support volunteers to look to as well.
