Nervous

According to the timeline (PDF), the PASS Nominating Committee is supposed to contact the applicants today or tomorrow and let us know if we’re on the slate. The slate should be announced on Wednesday.

I’m nervous.

I’d like to say I’m not worried, or that I think it will be fine, but I can’t. I’ve been a vocal critic of PASS at times, and I think a strong supporter. So it’s possible that the vote to include me on the ballot could go either way.

I should know soon, so in the meantime I’ll try to busy myself with other work and not think about it.

I'm in the same boat.  Don't want to seem anxious, but do want to know.  Have to keep in mind that PASS HQ is on Pacific Time and I'm on Eastern 3 hours ahead.

I'm glad to see you're not spending anytime thinking about it ;-).    Seriously, good luck to you!!   You too, Jack!

Good luck guys.  I know I'm not on the slate so I am spared the anxiety ;)

Steve (And Jack) good luck I hope you both make it and I'm sure with 3 votes per member you will get plenty of votes. Not sure if they have announced the slate yet but the people who applied all seem really good candidates.

Thanks, everyone, we'll see if I hear today. No word yet.
