We are seeking nominations for candidates for election to the X.Org
Foundation Board of Directors. All X.Org Foundation members are
eligible for election to the board.
Nominations for the 2018 election are now open and will remain open
until 23:59 UTC on 23 Feb 2018.
The Board consists of directors elected from the membership. Each
year, an election is held to bring the total number of directors to
eight. The four members receiving the highest vote totals will serve
as directors for two year terms.
The directors who received two year terms starting in 2017 were Rob
Clark, Martin Peres, Taylor Campbell and Daniel Vetter. They will
continue to serve until their term ends in 2019. Current directors
whose term expires in 2018 are Alex Deucher, Egbert Eich, Keith
Packard and Bryce Harrington.
A director is expected to participate in the fortnightly IRC meeting
to discuss current business and to attend the annual meeting of the
X.Org Foundation, which will be held at a location determined in
advance by the Board of Directors.
A member may nominate themselves or any other member they feel is
qualified. Nominations should be sent to the Election Committee at
elections at x.org.
Nominees shall be required to be current members of the X.Org
Foundation, and submit a personal statement of up to 200 words that
will be provided to prospective voters. The collected statements,
along with the statement of contribution to the X.Org Foundation in
the members account page on http://members.x.org, will be made
available to all voters to help them make their voting decisions.
Nominations, membership applications or renewals and completed
personal statements must be received no later than 23:59 UTC on 23 Feb
The slate of candidates will be published 1 Mar 2018 and candidate Q&A
will begin then. The deadline for Xorg membership applications and
renewals is 1 Mar 2018.
Cheers, Rob Clark, on behalf of the X.Org BoD
