We are currently seeking nominations for the following positions:

Chair (currently appointed on a per-meeting basis)
The person in charge of general meetings. The chair moderates debate, establishes agendas, and can accept motions and censor disruptive attendees.

Clerk (currently Mikkel)
Responsible for taking votes, publishing minutes, and keeping a record of documents and motions passed. The clerk should have sole access to voting records. Allowing directors access to this data would give us the opportunity to falsify votes. Since this information is published to the forum, it provides another good reason to remove directors from roles as forum moderators. The clerk should either have basic PHP/MySQL experience or appoint someone who does in order to maintain the technical aspects of record-keeping.

Forum moderator/IRC op (currently all of the directors)
Maintains order in the forum/IRC; takes care of spam and people behaving badly. Must be level-headed, established in the community, and frequently available.

Site admin (currently Stephane)
Responsible for maintaining the smooth operation of the site and server, including updates to site design and functionality and wiki maintenance.

The positions of Chair and Clerk will be elected, the others appointed by the Federal Council out of any volunteers. You may nominate yourself for any or all positions if you so choose. The permanent positions of Chair and Clerk will be elected at the October 19 general meeting.

I would like to volunteer for the position of Site Admin.

I have experience with Content Management Systems such as Drupal and Joomla. I am proficient with coding in PHP, HTML, CSS and Javascript. I also have experience with using PHPmyadmin to manage a MYSQL database.  I have used linux as a desktop for the last 7 years and have run a linux server for the last 2 years, which I have used as a testing server for various web applications that I have developed involving the manipulation of RSS feeds.

I currently working in a IT role with a large company dealing all with active directory and windows server. I am very much looking to transition to working with webservers, apache and a linux server enivronment and Site Admin would provide a great oppurtunity to gain experience which I would not take lightly.

I would like to volunteer as Clerk.

I'm good at organizing stuff and keeping track of things. I'm usually very attentive to conversation. I'm also used to motions and seconding, and creating summaries of information. As I'm not planning to run for any political position, directorship, or anything of the sort for a few years, I figure I'd be good in this position.

I would like to nominate myself for IRC Op

I have been with the party almost a year and been a hop in the #Canada for around 9 of those months.  I have shown responsibility with my power, and believed to be trustworthy within the party which is why i believe i would be an excellent candidate for IRC Op.

I nominate myself for the position of chair, on the basis that someone else will probably do it and I might as well beat them to it.

I would also like to apply for IRC operator status, as I am often in the channel and - if so elected - operator privileges would be helpful in discharging my duties. My history as chair has indicated that the party already trusts me to manage it.

I will nominate myself for IRC Op as well. I have been a member of the party for over a year now, and many months ago, I was given op status on the channel simply because I am almost always there. I haven't abused my power and have shown responsibility with it.
