OSHWA board nominations are open #OpenSource #OpenSourceHardware @oshwassociation
The Open Source Hardware Association (OSHWA) is looking for 5 new faces to join the board of directors. The nominee form is, as always, for self-nominations only. Please fill out the nominee form (deactivated 11:59PM ET on Oct. 11) to become a nominee or forward the link to someone you want to nominate. Do not fill out the form for someone else. The purpose of this form is to tell voting members why you want to serve on the OSHWA board.
OSHWA will publish the nominees and their answers on Oct 13th. Board members hold a 2-year position. Once board members have been chosen by the membership, the board will appoint a President, VP, and Secretary.
Board responsibilities include fundraising, promoting OSHWA, advising on goals and direction, and carry out compliance with the organizations purposes and bylaws. Board members must follow the Code of Conduct. See the board member agreement to get a sense of the responsibilities. Board members are expected to adhere to the board attendance policy and come prepared having read the board packet. Board members are expected to spend 5-10 hours of time per month on OSHWA.
Nominees can submit questions to [email protected]. Nominations will be open until Oct. 11th.
