The nominations for the Open Source Initiative board of elections just closed, March 6th. It’s time for voters to meet the candidates.
The OSI board of directors will renew three of its seats with an open election process among its full individual members and affiliates. We will be holding two elections:
- Individual members will elect two directors
- Affiliate organizations will elect one director
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: OSI members can ask candidates 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.
- Gael Blondelle (proposed by Open Forum Europe)
- Gabriele Columbro (proposed by Linux Foundation)
- Matt Jarvis (proposed by OpenUK)
- Anne-Marie Scott (proposed by Apereo Foundation)
Voting opens this Friday, March 10. Individual full members and affiliate representatives will receive a ballot via email with instructions on how to vote. Only individuals who are Full Members at the time voting opens may vote in the Individual election. Only the official representative of the OSI Affiliates may vote in the Affiliate election, one vote per Affiliate. More details on the elections page.
