John Mertic

Zowe developer community,

We are thrilled to announce that the election process for the Zowe ZLC is ready to begin. The election process is documented at

This election process is unique as we are transition from the Zowe project formation ZLC to a steady state ZLC, we will be re-electing the entire ZLC. With that, 3 of the ZLC positions will be two years terms, while the other 3 will be one year terms.

Schedule for the elections is as follows:

Today - Call for Nominations, email all Zowe project committers
Feb 12 - Nominations close, 11:59pm ET
Feb 14 - Voting period opens, all current Zowe project committers vote, vote by electronic mail or CIVS as appropriate
Feb 21 - Voting period ends, 11:59pm ET
Feb 24 - Election results announced

Starting today, we are accepting nominations for ZLC seats. Each nominee must be a Zowe Committer ( if you are unsure of the nominee's status, feel free to reach out to me to confirm ). The nominations should include:

- Nominee's name and email
- Whether the nomination is for a 1 year or 2 year term
- Background of the nominee and rationale for wanting to serve on the ZLC.

Please note that you can nominate yourself or nominate someone else ( please confirm with that person that they wish to be nominated ).

Thank you and let me know of any questions or concerns.
