Nominations are solicited for candidates for one director position

COIN-OR is evolving rapidly, and directors can have a significant
influence on the development of the Foundation. Candidates should
have an active interest in COIN-OR and be committed to active
participation in SLB and TLC business. For more information on the
activities of and expectations for directors, prospective candidates
are encouraged to contact any of the current directors or the

For all director positions, a candidate may be nominated by any
interested individual.  Self-nomination is allowed. The nomination must
be seconded by a full member of the Foundation.

Nominations should be emailed to the Secretary (secretary at coin-or.org)

statement to be distributed to the full members of the Foundation prior
