Board of Directors Nominations for Plone Foundation, 2017-2018; nominations open until Oct. 15, 2017

If you have an interest in helping the governance of Plone, and particularly the energy and time to pitch in, please consider nominating yourself to serve on the Plone Foundation board of directors for 2017-2018.

The Plone Foundation is a not-for-profit, public-benefit corporation with the mission to "promote and protect Plone".

The board writes no code and makes no development decisions. It is much more concerned with marketing, budgets, fundraising, community process and intellectual property considerations.

You do not need to be a Foundation member to serve on the board (in fact, board leadership is an excellent way to become a Foundation member). All you need is to get an active Foundation member to second your nomination.

The Plone Foundation is interested in broadening the diversity of our leadership, with regards to gender, ethnicity, and geography.

If you have questions about the nomination process, contact the board:
