The Drupal Association board is calling for nominations for elections for "At Large" Directors for 2013.
In February the Drupal Association conducted our first ever broad based elections.
The nominating committee is starting the search to fill our other vacant board positions, but it's up to members of the community to select Directors to represent the community at large on the board.
- Sep 1-16 Nominations open
- Sep 17-23 Statements, Questions, Meet the Candidates sessions
- Sep 24-Oct 7 Voting
- Oct 10 Ratify results at board meeting
All candidates must be prepared to attend at least one session to "Meet the candidates" taking place in the week of September 17-23. These will be scheduled across many timezones to make it easier for people around the world to engage with the process.

Travel Tick box
I am able to travel to four in-person board meetings per year (either self-funded, or with financial sponsorship)
Once elected, directors will be expected to participate in monthly board meeting conference calls, and attend four in-person meetings.
Based on feedback from our last election, we know we need more time for voting, so the polls will be open for two weeks, instead of 5 days.
The election results will be ratified at a board meeting on 10 October 2012, and the new Directors will be invited to attend an in person meeting taking place in San Francisco on 5-6 November 2012, immediately following BADcamp.
Please help spread the word about these elections. Please think about standing as a candidate, or encourage someone you know to do so. Please participate in our "meet the candidates" sessions, or just send in your questions for them to answer.
When voting opens, vote, and tell everyone you know they should too.
