Herbert is one of 14 candidates for 10 TUG Board vacancies.
I've been using TeX since the mid-1980s; well, except for several years in the mid- to late-1990s. During that time period I received a great deal of help from others as I tried to better understand the subtleties of using TeX, and later LaTeX. After retiring in 2001 I decided to give back to the community and have helped put together MacTeX as well as MacTeXtras as well as help others on multiple (both Mac and non-Mac centric) on-line forums and email lists.
I would like to become a member of the TUG Board to further help develop on-line help through the TUG Web Pages by gathering links to as many on-line and up-to-date TeX, LaTeX and Distribution help locations along with descriptions of what they provide. I believe this would be one way to help increase TUG membership and speed up the learning curve for new users of TeX.
