DSF Board Election for 2019

It’s that time of year again where we elect the Django Software Foundation Board of Directors.

If you’re interested in helping contribute back to Django and the Django Community we encourage you to stand for this years election.

To run this year please fill out this this election form by November 29th, 2018 AoE.

Not sure if you want to be a Board Member?

Being a DSF Board Member is a great way to contribute time rather than code or money. If there is something in our community you would like to change or improve being a Board Member puts you in a position to effect change.

While some of the officer positions do require more of a time commitment the average Member typically spends just a few hours a month helping to direct the DSF. We have one roughly hour-long meeting each month to conduct the main business and correspond via email/Trello/etc for smaller matters.

Typical meetings involve topics such as:

  • Approval/discussion of conferences
  • Awarding grants for events such as the many DjangoGirls events around the world
  • Policy and Process changes to membership, voting, structure, etc.
  • Fundraising
  • Awarding the Malcolm Tredinnick Memorial Prize
  • Board Member lead initiatives

This year, in particular, we are in need of someone interested in taking on the role of Treasurer. One of the more time-consuming officer positions.

If you have any questions about the Board or being a Board Member please do not hesitate to reach out to me directly at frank@djangoproject.com, any of our current Board Members, or all of us at once at foundation@djangoproject.com.
