Steering committee membership includes representation of VCF membership, as

• The committee membership will be determined by elections to be held on a
yearly basis (currently December.)
• Committee membership is ideally comprised of five people but may vary due
to various circumstances.
• Two seats will be up for election in every cycle, unless additional
vacancies create the need for seats to be filled, in which case all vacant seats will be up for
election in that cycle.
• Nominations for committee members can be made by current members in good
standing simply by communicating the nomination to a committee member. One
nomination per member can be made. Said members may also self-nominate.
• In the case of off-cycle vacancies, the committee may move to, without an
election, appoint new committee members to fill the seats until the next scheduled election.
• A committee chairperson will be appointed by the committee members within
30 days of each completed election cycle.
• Prospective committee members should be knowledgeable in some aspect of
computing,
preferably vintage computers, and show a demonstrated interest in vintage

• In order to be sufficiently aware and have proper perspective of museum
and warehouse issues, prospective committee members should be able to physically attend
VCF events at least quarterly.
