So no need to panic, but please don't forget it!

We also add a note on the STV voting system we use. Please realize that it
tries to optimize to make your first choice most likely to be on the board,
with subsequent choices being much less probable (unless your earlier
choices are very popular). As such the order of your choices
really is important.
For more details please read

Please note that the current Board of Directors remains in charge until the
end of Monday 17th of February, so the new will be in charge from Tuesday
18th of February.
That upcoming term will then (regularly) end on February 17, 2022, so we'll
have elections of the Board of Directors again before that date.

Should you still have some remaining question: please feel free to send a
mail to
(as explained here
under "Discussions with the candidates…").

Follows the list of candidates with links to all their candidacy mails, to
make all easy accessible.
(The order is purely alphabetical, based on surname).
