NumFOCUS Elections Process

We received 46 nominations for the new NumFOCUS Board of Directors — thank you to all who nominated someone!

The next step is for the nominees to complete their application detailing their qualifications, and then there will be an endorsement period for the community followed by selection and ratification by the current Board and Advisory Council.

Aug 10 – 24: Endorsements by NumFOCUS members who volunteer or donate

Aug 26 – 31: Selection and ratification by the NumFOCUS board and advisory council

 

Who Is Eligible to Make Endorsements?

There are two ways to qualify for an endorsement ballot:

  1. You are a NumFOCUS Supporting or Sustaining Member – i.e. you made a donation to NumFOCUS within the past year.
  2. You volunteer at least 5 hours per month for the NumFOCUS organization. This includes all NumFOCUS project committees, event committees and boards, as well as other individuals that give at least 5 hours per month to the NumFOCUS organization.

 

When Do Ballots Go Out?

If you donated to NumFOCUS within the past year, or if your name is listed below among our qualifying volunteers, you will receive your ballot on Monday, August 13.

 

How Do I Get an Endorsement Ballot?

If you would like to participate in the endorsement period but your name is not listed below and you have not donated to NumFOCUS in the past year, you may make a donation to NumFOCUS before August 13th and be guaranteed a ballot.

We will endeavor to send ballots to new donors throughout the endorsement period, but donating prior to August 13th is the best way to guarantee your participation.

 

Why is this called an “endorsement” and not “voting?”

As outlined previously on the blog, the Board and Council will not necessarily pick a set of candidates that are the top endorsement winners, but rather the group from the most endorsements that represent the wider needs of the community. In other words, those candidates receiving the majority of endorsements will not necessarily make up the final roster of new board members.

We choose this process because we felt the general election doesn’t always produce a working group that covers all the skills we might need.

Qualifying Volunteers

Below are the names of individuals who serve on NumFOCUS project committees, event committees, and boards.

NumFOCUS sponsored projects have helped me immeasurably in my work. I can’t imagine not giving back and supporting them in turn.
