Members of the Leadership Group play a key role in setting the strategic direction and priorities of the project through the approval of the annual budget allocation and project roadmap and establishing the annual community direction. Under the governance of Fedora, Leadership Group members represent Platinum member institutions, in-kind contributors or are representatives of Gold, Silver, or Bronze member institutions that have been nominated and elected by DuraSpace Members in support of Fedora. The Fedora community benefits greatly from the engagement of it’s Leadership Group and is excited to welcome these members.
The Fedora project is seeking two individuals from the community to be an active participant in the future of the Fedora project by serving as a member of the Fedora Leadership Group.
Beginning today, we invite anyone in the Fedora community, DuraSpace members (whose institution doesn’t already have a Leadership Group seat) or non-members of DuraSpace, to nominate an individual who you believe would be a good representative of the community (self-nominations are welcome).
Ideal candidates should be familiar with Fedora and have an interest in being engaged with key project decisions and the broader user community. It is also helpful if the candidate has fiscal or staffing responsibility within their organization and able to bring the commitment, creativity, and dedication that the role calls for.
Learn more about the Fedora Leadership Group here.
Please submit your nomination using this form by June 25, 2018. Self-nominations are welcome.
At the end of the nomination process anyone nominated will be asked to submit a brief personal statement expressing why they would be a suitable candidate for the Leadership Group. An election will follow at which time the Fedora community will be asked to vote for two candidates.
If you have any questions about the Fedora project governance or the nomination and election process please contact David Wilcox, Fedora Product Manager.
