Elections Workgroup Volunteers The Elections Workgroup is responsible for running OTW Board elections. We ensure the fairness, timeliness, and confidentiality of the process. As a team we will update the elections process, communicate with members and other committees about the process, help candidates prepare for and carry out their tasks, and run the election itself.

We have 3 specializations available, though all members of the workgroup will join in shared tasks and work together on projects. If none of the specializations perfectly match your abilities but you still think you could be an asset to the workgroup, please pick the closest match and explain in the optional details section.

Applications are due 21 July 2014 UTC

Web Developer Do you have experience with Drupal and website management? Join our team of Web Developers! Web Developers are responsible for improvements to and maintenance of the primary OTW web properties. You will participate in an on-call rotation with other Web Developers, design and implement new features and fixes for the websites, and help to determine priorities for future web development efforts.
