Annual General Meetings/2017

11th Annual General Meeting of the OpenStreetMap Foundation

The 11th Annual General Meeting of the OpenStreetMap Foundation will be held online in the IRC chat room #osmf-gm on the IRC network irc.oftc.net, at 1600 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.

Voting

Only fully paid up members will be able to vote, and only those who have already become members 30 days prior to the AGM date.

Voting information will be sent out by email.

Voting will be probably organised in a similar way to last year:

Voting members will receive an email from the on-line voting service with links to the on-line ballot for each ballot measure. The election will be carried out under single transferable vote rules (STV). Each foundation member will cast their vote by ranking all candidates according to their preference. A maximum of two will be elected. See wikipedia:Single transferable vote for details.

More information will follow.
