Invitation to the Silicon Cape 2013 Committee Elections

The Silicon Cape Initiative is inviting it’s community to their committee election voting event at 6PM on Wednesday November 14 2012, hosted at the Bandwidth Barn.
Candidates for the 2013 committee will be giving brief motivations for the community to vote them onto the committee, making this a unique opportunity to hear industry leading thoughts around the initiative from those interested in moving closer toward the vision.
This is the second committee election since the original appointment after the launch event. There are 10 out of 12 seats up for election, meaning the new committee could consist almost entirely of new players, and will be able to set completely new directions for the initiative.
Those interested in getting more involved with the initiative, but who do not make it on to the committee, could be considered by the new committee as part of a sub-committee around each portfolio.
Members of the Cape Town IT and startup community are encouraged to attend the election event to place their votes for which of the candidates they would like to see on the committee. Snacks and pizza will be provided, RSVPing is recommended.

or sign-up and then RSVP to place your vote.
