- by Editorial Staff
- on Joomla News
According to the new Joomla! Structure, half of the Board of Director and Officer positions must be put up for election 6 months after the transition process completed. By having two (2) election cycles six (6) months apart, this allows the project to ensure continuity at board level.
Please see the election cycle document on the Open Source Matters site for more information: https://www.opensourcematters.org/organisation/directors/election-cycle.html
The following 5 positions are open for nomination and election in this cycle:
- Vice President
- Events Department Coordinator
- Marketing & Communication Department Coordinator
- Programs Department Coordinator
The Vice President and Treasurer are named for this cycle in the ByLaws and the 3 Department Coordinators up for election in this cycle volunteered themselves as there was only one nomination for each of these roles in the initial election of the new board.
To submit your nominations for these roles, please use this form:
