As of October 2021, we have three new faces on the OpenJS Foundation Board of Directors. They are filling positions on the Platinum level, Gold level, and Community level. We welcome their collective experience and energy!
The Board sets technical policy, including “mission and vision statements, describing the overarching scope of foundation initiatives, technical vision, and direction.”
From our bylaws:
Each Platinum member is entitled to appoint one Director to the board, and the Platinum Directors are eligible to serve as chairperson and vice-chairperson. Gold and Silver members vote among themselves to select their representatives. The board also includes community representation, with up to 3 Community Director positions nominated by the CPC and its chartered committees.
