Candidate Questionnaire

We are collecting a list of questions, which will be given to each candidate to answer before the IRC Town Halls. Please see the questionnaire and add your own. Note: not all questions will be posed to the candidates. Questions may be edited. Candidates may choose to answer (or not) as they see fit. Questions will be collected from November 10-16. Candidates will have from November 17-23 to return their responses which will be published no later than November 26.

Live Town Halls

As part of FUDCon Toronto 2009, we are considering hosting Live Town Halls for each of the committee elections.

IRC Town Halls

Each group participating in the election will host two Town Hall forums on IRC. Each will last one hour, or less if there are no further questions.
