Let the campaign trail begin!

Eclipse Election for Board of Directors 2012 is underway

Chris Mayer

You can now cast your vote to elect the next board members representing Eclipse committers and the Sustaining Members (Solutions Members and Enterprise Members)

It’s that time of year again. The Eclipse Foundation have
officially opened the polls
to elect new board members to two
of the most important boards within the community that
represent Solutions Members and Enterprise Members.

Unlike the current campaign trail underway in the U.S., there
won’t be mudslinging or underhand tactics for one candidate to
assume a vital poll lead going into the home stretch – this
election will no doubt appoint several capable board members, with
their job to instill all the policies that makes the Eclipse
Foundation so great.

There are six positions available on the board –
three representatives of the Eclipse committers and
three representatives of the so-called Sustaining Members, who are
made up of enterprises backing the huge open source
foundation. The terms of office for these elected board
members is one year, commencing April 1.

For the positions on the Committers board, we have the
following candidates:

Whilst for the Sustaining Members Board, there’s the following
four candidates.

You’ll find all the details about the candidates, and their
manifestos, in the links above, which will hopefully be able to
guide you on who is the best candidate to represent the wider
community. Voting is
 until 3:00pm Eastern on March 16, 2012.

The winners of the election will be announced at the Annual
General Meeting of the Eclipse Foundation which will be held on
Monday, March 26th at EclipseCon 2012. Happy
