Board process update: FSF asks nominees to confirm their interest

by Free Software Foundation Contributions Published on Mar 16, 2023 06:40 PM

The Free Software Foundation (FSF) board of directors would like to thank all associate members who answered the call for nominations and nominated candidates to serve on the FSF board of directors. This week marks a next step in the FSF's process to finding new board members. Thanks to our associate members, nominated individuals will receive a questionnaire to accept their nomination. Returning the FSF board nomination questionnaire before the March 31, 2023, 12:00 UTC, means the candidate accepts nomination.

The next step in the evaluation process will be for the FSF voting members to review the nominees' answers. They will select some nominees as "candidates" to move forward in the board nomination process. Then, they will select candidates to be discussed by interested associate members in a private forum, one or a few at a time.

The FSF will publish the names of candidates who will move forward to the discussion, and which candidate(s) will be discussed in following discussions.

For more information about the FSF board process, you can review the board diagram depiction. The process is also available in a text outline. More information about the FSF's board governance changes and other updates can be found on the dedicated webpage:
