DSF 2019 Board Election Results

I’m pleased to announce the winners of our 2019 DSF Board of Directors election. In order of ranking, they are:

  • Frank Wiles

  • Katie McLaughlin
  • Anna Makarudze
  • James Bennett
  • Jessica ‘Deatz’ Deaton
  • Ola Tarkowska

Katie, Anna, James, and myself were re-elected for another term and we welcome our new Members, Jessica and Ola. We look forward to working with them in the new year.

I also want to take a moment to sincerely thank our retiring Board Members, Daniele Procida and Rebecca Conley, who have worked very hard over the last few years to advance the DSF. Their presence on the Board will be greatly missed.

This year we had 17 great candidates and while not everyone can get elected each year I hope they all consider running again in the 2020 election.

Another item of note with this election is that our Board is now comprised of two thirds women, which is a first for the DSF.

We will all meet together to certify the election and set officers at our next Board meeting later this month. As always if you have questions about the Django Software Foundation please direct them to foundation@djangoproject.com.

Happy Holidays!
