The election will take place August 9th during the Conference for the Association for Software Testing.
Anyone who is a member one month prior to the election (and has internet) can vote.
That means that if you are not a member, and want to vote, you’ll need to join AST by July 6th or so.
Membership in AST is $95 per year; I have been a member continuously since 2007 or so, and was a member of the AST_formation Yahoo Group before AST was a thing.
I’m also not good at politics; my experience with elections has not been great.
I do claim, however, to belong to the software-testing community, to make effort on behalf of the community to advance the craft, by doing it, helping others do it, writing and speaking about it. I claim to have both a vision for the future of the profession, and specific ideas that a professional association might do to move the craft forward.
I have been nominated, I am running. If elected, I will serve.
If you’d like to vote for me, you’ll have to be a member of AST. If you don’t want to vote for me, can I suggest that you look into AST anyway?
I suspect you’ll like what you find.
