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 2014 election are now open and will remain open
until 23.59 GMT on 12 February 2013.

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 2013 were
Alan Coopersmith, Martin Peres, Peter Hutterer and Stuart Kreitman. 
They will continue to serve until their term ends in 2015.  Current
directors whose term expires in 2014 are Matthias Hopf, Keith Packard, 
Matt Dew, and Alex Deucher.

A director is expected to participate in the bi-weekly 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

Nominees shall be required to be current members of the X.Org
Foundation, and submit a  personal statement of up to 200 words that

the members account page on, will be made available 
to all voters to help them make their voting decisions.
