I'd like to encourage people to stand for Council - we have a number  
of XSF Members who are more than capable of performing the Council  
role really well, and I'd personally like to see new people on the  
Council - not because our existing Council is poor, but new blood is  
always good, and elections aren't much fun if you can guess the  
outcome.

I've not yet decided whether to stand or not, but if you're  
interested in knowing what the position involves in practise, then  
feel free to contact me. I'll keep such things confidential if you'd  
like, of course.

Dave.
