Casey Cain
 

Hello, everyone.

This is to inform you that the self-nomination period for the LFN Governing Board Committer Representative (LGBMCR) election has started.  

Role:
  • The role of the LFN Governing Board Member Committers Representative (LGBMCR) is to represent the committers and contributors to LFN projects at the LFN Governing board.  The expectation of the LGBMCR is to attend all LFN Governing board meetings (and any appropriate ancillary meetings), gather input from the committer community for issues raised at the board level, and to communicate to the committer community key activities from board.
  • LGBMCR is elected for the 1 year. Re-election is not possible.
Eligible candidates:
  • Candidates must be active committers to at least one LFN project.
  • Candidates can self-nominate, or be nominated by other community members. In the latter case, candidates must accept the nomination before the election is conducted.
  • Candidates must be an active committer to a LFN project which differs from the LFN project that the currently servicing LGBMCR is an active committer of.
    • The 2021 LGBMCR was from the ONAP Community
If you are interested in becoming the technical representative to the Governing Body and you meet the eligibility requirements, please self-nominate at the link below by July 6th, 2022.
https://wiki.lfnetworking.org/x/7gJzB

Voting will begin at the conclusion of the self-nomination period.

If you would like more information on the LGBMCR, please see https://wiki.lfnetworking.org/x/AgIiAQ or reach out to your community Technical Program Manager / Community Architect.
