Don't Forget To Vote!

With just a few days to go in our elections, here’s your gentle reminder to vote on who you would most like to see on the board of the OSI. You have until midnight PST on March 14th, 2016 to do so.

Helios System

Voting for board members takes places through the Helios App. The link, voter ID, and password can be found in the emails that have been sent to each member. We have a wiki page with far more detailed information on the whole process.

Our Candidates

Profiles for each candidate can be found here, so take advantage of the ability to ask questions in the comments. It’s the best way for you learn about each candidate and what they hope to achieve as board members of the OSI.

Thank you for your continued support as an OSI member*, and as a member-led organisation, thank you for voting.

We can fix that. Check out our recent blog post for notes on why you should become a member and how to do so.

To promote and protect open source software and communities...

For over 20 years the Open Source Initiative (OSI) has worked to raise awareness and adoption of open source software, and build bridges between open source communities of practice. As a global non-profit, the OSI champions software freedom in society through education, collaboration, and infrastructure, stewarding the Open Source Definition (OSD), and preventing abuse of the ideals and ethos inherent to the open source movement.

Open source software is made by many people and distributed under an OSD-compliant license which grants all the rights to use, study, change, and share the software in modified and unmodified form. Software freedom is essential to enabling community development of open source software.
