We are seeking nominations for candidates for election to the X.Org 
Foundation Board of Directors. All X.Org Foundation members are eligible 
for election to the board.

Nominations for the 2021 election are now open and will remain open 
until Sunday, the 7th of March.

The Board consists of directors elected from the membership. Each year, 
an election is held to bring the total number of directors to eight. The 
four members receiving the highest vote totals will serve as directors 
for two year terms.

The directors who received two year terms starting in 2020 were Eric 
Anholt, Mark Filion, Keith Packard, and Harry Wentland. They will 
continue to serve until their term ends in 2022. Current directors whose 
term expires in 2021 are Samuel Iglesias Gonsálvez, Manasi D Navare, 
Lyude Paul, and Daniel Vetter.

A director is expected to participate in the fortnightly IRC meeting to 
discuss current business and to attend the annual meeting of the X.Org 
Foundation, which will be held at a location determined in advance by 
the Board of Directors.

qualified. Nominations should be sent to the Election Committee at
