The 2nd Community Fund Committee Elected

Empowering the community

The election for the second Community Fund Committee has been completed! I would like to take the time to thank everyone who has served on the first CFC! Further still, I would like to say a special thank you to those who have served but whose seats at the council are now held by new members. You were part of a crucial foundational period for the CFC that will continue to guide the future of the CFC. You were pioneers and for that we’ll be forever grateful! I would also like to thank everyone who has run for a seat this time and previously!

Now onto the main event and what everyone has been waiting for! We had all but Kristy(OhGodAGirl) run for reelection with the CFC. After the election poll completed, we had a tie for the 7th seat of the CFC, a tie between KartalEagle and RyanApeFiro! We had to host a tie break poll to see who the community ultimately wanted to fulfill the role. Now that both the election poll and the tie break poll have come to their conclusion we can now announce the new CFC members! Thank you everyone who took their time and cast their votes for not only the election poll, but the tie break poll!

The 2nd CFC members

The elected members for the new CFC, whom will now serve for a period of 1 year, are as follows:

  • Devwarrior
  • Nrsimha
  • RasikhMorani
  • Fiendish

For those who were nominated for a seat on the committee, but were not elected to one this election we are very grateful for you taking the time to participate, and we hope that you will continue to participate and be active members within the Firo community! Just as with our last election, the community has once again picked a well rounded mix of well established community members, subject matter experts and developers. We would like to thank the community for voting wisely!

How to get funded from the Firo Community Fund

What are the responsibilities of the Community Fund Committee?

  1. To decide along with taking into account community feedback on how the Firo Community Fund should be utilised.

How will the Firo Community Fund (FCF) be utilised?

  1. FCF funds must always be utilised for the benefit of Firo. Research, development or promotional activities that do not directly benefit Firo should not be undertaken.
