The candidacy nominations for the Open Source Initiative board of elections closed today, March 7th. The OSI board of directors will renew four of its seats with an open election process among its full individual members and affiliates. This month we will be holding two elections:
- The Affiliate organizations will elect two directors
- Individual members will elect two directors
We’re thrilled to announce nine individual and seven Affiliate candidates who are up for election. Meet the candidates before voting opens this Friday, March 11th.
We encourage members to check out the list of Individual and Affiliate Candidates below. Read about their backgrounds and interest in serving on the board. Each candidate page also features a comments section: use it to ask about their plans, hopes, and views for the OSI (don’t endorse candidates there please). Take advantage of the ability to ask questions as it’s the best way for you to learn about each candidate and what they hope to achieve as board members of the OSI.
