We have just published a blog post announcing the opening of nominations for three seats on the Zcash Community Grants Committee.
Anyone can stand for election (and existing members can stand for re-election). Prospective candidates simply need to nominate themselves by submitting a forum post (ideally five paragraphs or less) in the governance zcg-elections category , announcing their candidacy, and outlining why they believe they should be elected.
The deadline for nominations is 09:00 UTC on Monday 4th December 2023.
We will add a list of candidates to this post, and candidates will be added to the (@ZCG_Candidates) forum group.
We will host a community call with the candidates in mid-December. After the community call, we will open a Helios poll of the Zcash Community Advisory Panel (ZCAP), which will close at the end of December.
All prospective candidates please:
- Read this blog post, which contains important information about the election process, the process of becoming a ZCG Committee member (which includes undergoing KYC, and completing a conflict of interest declaration), and
- Announce your candidacy by posting in the ZCG Elections category
- Reply to this topic with a link to your candidacy announcement. We will add you to the @ZCG_Candidates group, and add a link to all candidacy announcements in this top post in the order received.
- All candidates will receive the title “ZCG Candidate” during the duration of the campaign so users can easily identify users that are running.
If potential candidates have any questions about the role or the election process, please post them in this topic.
Any questions for the individual candidates should be posted in their individual candidacy topics to avoid everyone asking/answering questions in this thread.
