DSF calls for nominees for a vacant board seat

Posted by Russell Keith-Magee on May 29, 2014

Jeremy Dunck has decided to resign his seat on the board of the Django Software Foundation (DSF). Jeremy has held positions on the DSF since it was founded in 2008. He was the inaugural secretary of the DSF, and held that position until last year, when he moved to the board, filling the vacancy left by the resignation of Alex Gaynor. The Django Software Foundation would like to thank Jeremy for his diligent service over the last 6 years.

As a result of Jeremy's resignation, the DSF is calling for nominations for a replacement board member.

Formal nominations for the open board seat may be made by any DSF member. If you're not a DSF member, and you've got an idea of someone you'd like to see on the DSF board, feel free to suggest the name - if someone in the official membership agrees with you, they can formally propose that name for nomination.

What does a DSF board member do? DSF board members are expected to participate in a monthly board teleconference, and follow up on any activities generated by that teleconference. Depending on the business presented to the board, this may result in additional work over the course of the month. The work will usually be administrative and organisational in nature -- for example, representing the board in legal discussions, or liaising with groups performing work on the DSF's behalf.

The call for nominees closes at 1200 UTC on June 13.

Of course, if you'd like to be involved in the formal nomination and voting process, you need to be a member of the DSF. Developer members are individuals appointed by the DSF board in recognition of their service to the Django community. Corporate members are those that have contributed financially to the DSF. If you are interested in becoming a corporate member of the DSF, you can find out more on our corporate membership page.
