Drupal Association elections open for 2021
The self-nomination period for the Drupal Association Board has already started. There are two At-Large positions on the board that are filled by an election process that used to be open to the community and since last year requires a Drupal Association membership to vote. One seat will be elected for the 2021-2023 period in October.
As the Elections page from the Drupal Association states:
Simply put, the At-large Director position is specifically designed to ensure community representation on the Drupal Association board.
The self-nomination period is open up to September 27th and you need to fill this Google form to be considered as a candidate. Please make sure you check the eligibility, legal stuff and responsibilities before running for the seat.
All the information and dates are available in this article: https://www.drupal.org/association/board/elections/election-2021-dates-and-candidates
As a personal note, I want to bring up that I wanted to move a vote to revert the election process to its previous form that didn’t require a Drupal Association membership to vote, but life comes at you fast. I want to keep bringing it the matter on next board meetings, as it seems that creating a task-force to open the communication with the community and review the issue could be on the table.
