The new board

Posted by Jim Jagielski on Thursday, June 7. 2007 in ASF

So we (the ASF) have finished up our latest members meeting and, in addition to voting in new members, we also elected a new board. They are:
  • Justin Erenkrantz
  • J Aaron Farr
  • Jim Jagielski
  • Geir Magnusson Jr
  • William A Rowe Jr
  • Sam Ruby
  • Henning Schmiedehausen
  • Greg Stein
  • Henri Yandell
Notwithstanding the number of Juniors on the board (pun intended), this represent 4 new directors (well, 3 completely new board members and one (Geir) who had served on the board a few years ago), which is a record for us. Great thanks go out to outgoing directors Ken, Dirk, Cliff and Sander. The ASF board is unique, in my opinion, because they don't steer or control the foundation as other boards do. Instead, this is done by the members. The board exists simply to allow the membership to continue doing what they want to do, and like doing. The power of the ASF really is in the hands of each and every member. As mentioned above, we also elected in 24 new members, but we won't be announcing their names until they are officially informed of their nominations and until we hear back whether or not they have accepted. But congrats go out to them as well!
