We are seeking nominations for candidates for election to the X.org 
Foundation Board of Directors. However, as we presently do not have 
enough nominations to start the election - the decision has been made to 
extend the timeline by 2 weeks. Note this is a fairly regular part of 
the elections process.

The new deadline for nominations to the X.org Board of Directors is 
23:59 UTC on 11 March 2024

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 2023 were 
Arkadiusz Hiler, Christopher Michael, Lyude Paul, and Daniel Vetter. 
They will continue to serve until their term ends in 2024. Current 
directors whose term expires in 2024 are Emma Anholt, Mark Filion, 
Ricardo Garcia, and Alyssa Rosenzweig.

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.

A member may nominate themselves or any other member they feel is 
qualified. Nominations should be sent to the Election Committee at 
elections at x.org.

Nominees shall be required to be current members of the X.Org 
Foundation, and submit a personal statement of up to 200 words that will 
be provided to prospective voters. The collected statements, along with 
the statement of contribution to the X.Org Foundation in the member's 
account page on http://members.x.org, will be made available to all 
voters to help them make their voting decisions.

Nominations and completed personal statements must be received no later 
than 23:59 UTC on 11 March 2024.

The slate of candidates will be published 18 March 2024 and candidate 
Q&A will begin then. The deadline for Xorg membership applications and 
renewals has also been extended 2 weeks and is now 25 March 2024.
