Yeah, it could works. In my past experience give a slot at time could
result in a slow community processes.

Another key point is that with multiple election we will able to have
steering committees working on the same working frequency and it could
be a benefit for everyone, community first.

Yes, there aren't problem, and it could sounds reasonable.

>From an Ambassadors point of view there aren't problem on the election
schedule. FY and Release Schedule are indipendent each other. Whoever
will be elected in those election would start work on FAmSCo budget in
February, with Q1 and a new FY (the Q4 budget will be closed in
December 1st). Moreover new FAmSCo will start working on Membership,
Training and Events mentoring (etc) when it will go in charge.

I want only to ask to make it in a period out of "Christmas", just
because it would be risky (we need all the community to hold such
important activity).
