Its time to nominate people for the
OpenNTF Board of Directors!
We are holding the elections a little
earlier this year - so that the new Board can elect a Chairperson who could
then spend some time with Bruce to learn the ropes.
According to the OpenNTF Bylaws, there
are two categories of Directors:
Member Directors - who represent
OpenNTF's 33 corporate Members. There are nine Member Directors, and the
terms of five of them expire in October although they may stand for re-election.
The Member Directors whose terms
are about to expire are:
- Julian Woodward
- Corey Davis
- Bruce Elgort
- Mikael Orn (replacing Brent Peters)
- John Head
OpenNTF Members need to elect five Member
representatives for two year terms as Member Directors.
Contributor Directors - who represent
There are three Contributor Directors
elected on an annual basis. Again, the incumbents may stand for re-election.
- Niklas Heidloff
- Ulrich Kraus
- Christian Guedemann
Any OpenNTF Contributor (ie, someone
covered by an ICLA or CCLA) is eligible to run. The Contributor population
needs to nominate and elect three Contributor Directors.
The nomination period from now until
August 9. Please send your nominations to IP-Manager@openntf.org.
Distribution of candidate statements
from Aug12-24. Member statements will be circulated to all OpenNTF Members,
and Contributor statements will be posted on the OpenNTF blog.
Voting from August 24 to September 6.
