It's almost time to elect a new crop of ten player-leaders in EVE Online. Those who are interested in a run for the Council of Stellar Management can start their journey by submitting an application from now through May 12th. Candidates will be announced at EVE Down Under on May 25th with voting taking place from June 10-17. Results will be announced on June 22nd at EVE North.
The Council of Stellar Management consists of 10 members selected democratically once a year in an online election hosted by CCP. This unique institution is a phenomenon in gaming and has gone through a myriad of changes and improvements to better serve its core purpose – to give all players of New Eden a strong and formal voice in the development of EVE Online.
CSM members will:
- go through "comprehensive onboarding and orientation for newly elected councilors"
- participate in weekly meetings and engage with internal CCP teams
- be flown to Reykjavik twice during their term to meet with devs
There are a number of requirements in order to apply, so it's a good idea to head to the EVE Online site to read the fine print.
