Foundation/AGM17/Election to Board
Foundation members will vote to elect a new board in December.
Two seats are available on the board for the 2017 board election. These are the seats currently held by Paul Norman and Ilya Zverev (both of whom are entitled to run for re-election to these seats). Meanwhile Mikel Maron, Peter Barth, Martijn van Exel, Kate Chapman and Frederik Ramm will remain on the board for an extended term. There is a total of seven seats on the foundation board.
To become a director on the board you must be a normal member, not an associate member, throughout the period of 30 days prior to the date of the meeting.

Questions to Candidates
Please use Talk:Foundation/AGM17/Election to Board
Only fully paid up members will be able to vote, and only those who have already become members 30 days prior to the AGM date.
Voting will be organised in a similar way to last year. Voting members will receive an email from the on-line voting service with links to the on-line ballot for each ballot measure. The election will be carried out under single transferable vote rules (STV). Each foundation member will cast their vote by ranking all candidates according to their preference. A maximum of two will be elected. See wikipedia:Single transferable vote for details.
