Common board elections, and the Al Barsa scholarship

Mark Fontecchio Mark Fontecchio Profile: Mark Fontecchio

The System i user group Common, which is rebranding itself as a Power Systems user group in light of IBM changes to that effect, will be holding elections soon for its board of directors. There are five candidates vying for three open spots: Bruce “Hoss” Collins, Richard Dolewski, Léo Lefebvre, Pete Massiello and Trevor Perry. More information on all the candidates is available at the Common website. Good luck to all the candidates.

Common is also building up funds for a scholarship in honor of Al Barsa, the System i and Common legend who died last year. The award — a free conference registration and plaque — will go to someone that shows the sort of dedication to the System i community that Barsa did for decades. Common is looking for donations to the scholarship through the Al Barsa scholarship application form.

    According to Michelle August, director of the CEF, the recipient of the Barsa award has been selected and will be announced at the opening session of the conference.

    Thanks David, for the update. I'll update the post. But people can still donate to the scholarship fund, yes?
