11th Annual General Meeting of the OpenStreetMap Foundation

The 11th Annual General Meeting of the OpenStreetMap Foundation was held online in the IRC chat room #osmf-gm on the IRC network irc.oftc.net, at 16:00 UTC on Saturday, 09 December 2017

Please see the IRC wiki page for information on how to connect to IRC.

Board Election

Foundation members will vote to elect a new board in December.

There will be a board election, with two seats available. You do not need to attend the meeting to vote but you need to be a member or associate member throughout the period of 30 days prior to the date of the meeting.

To become a director on the board, you must be a member, not an associate member. We have set-up https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Foundation/AGM17/Election_to_Board#Candidates to enable people to announce their candidacy. User wiki pages are a good place to post manifestos. osm.org user diaries are another option. The deadline for members to put themselves forward for election is two weeks before the Annual General Meeting.

Transparency
