Nominations are solicited for candidates for three director positions
on the Strategic Leadership Board (SLB) and three director positions on
the Technical Leadership Council (TLC).  All positions are for three-
year terms.  Any interested individual is eligible to be a director of
the Foundation.

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 Foundation Secretary
(secretary at coin-or.org).

Three directors will be elected to the SLB.  Note that membership in
COIN-OR is not required. Candidates with expertise in the software
industry or experience as a director for a non-profit organization will
be eagerly welcomed.  One position requires that the candidate be a
member of academia.

Three directors will be elected to the TLC. Membership in COIN-OR is
not required. 

The Foundation encourages the nomination of any interested individuals,
and particularly users of COIN-OR software, who have not previously
been active participants in COIN-OR projects.  Diversity of viewpoint
and skills is both needed and appreciated.

For all director positions, any interested individual may nominate a
candidate.  Self-nomination is allowed.  A full member of the
Foundation must second all nominations.

Nominations should be emailed to the Secretary (secretary at coin-
or.org) and will be accepted until Monday, November 28,
2016.  Candidates must agree to be nominated and will be contacted to
provide a short biography and statement to be distributed to the full
members of the Foundation prior to the election.
