Hi all,

The PyCon UK committee have recently registered the the UK Python
as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charitable_incorporated_organisation> with
the Charity Commission.

The UKPA is a membership organisation, and in the first instance, anybody
who attends PyCon UK 2017 is entitled to membership. For now, membership
entitles you to vote to elect the organisation's trustees. You can indicate
that you would like to join the UKPA when you buy a ticket for the
conference <http://2017.pyconuk.org/tickets/>, or if you already have a
ticket, when you fill out your profile <https://hq.pyconuk.org/profile/>.

We are looking to elect up to six trustees for the UKPA at the first AGM on
the Saturday of the conference. The trustees will be responsible for the
charity's management and administration, and will be responsible for
appointing a chair for PyCon UK 2018.

If you would like to put yourself forward for election as trustee, please
complete the nomination form <https://hq.pyconuk.org/ukpa/nominations/new/>
by Thursday 12th October.

You can read more about the decision-making behind the formation of the
UKPA here <http://2017.pyconuk.org/ukpa/>.  If you have any questions,
please get in touch with the trustees: trustees at uk.python.org.

I'd like to thank Owen Campbell for the hard work to make this happen.

All the best,
