Call for Nominations for Directors, COIN-OR Foundation
Nominations are solicited for candidates for up to two director
positions on the Strategic Leadership Board (SLB). 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).
Up to two directors will be elected to the SLB. Note that membership
in COIN-OR is not required; in fact, one of the open positions is
reserved for a non-member. Candidates with expertise in the software
industry or experience as a director for a non-profit organization will
be eagerly welcomed.
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, a candidate may be nominated by any
interested individual. Self-nomination is allowed. All nominations
must be seconded by a full member of the Foundation.
Nominations should be emailed to the Secretary (secretary at coin-
or.org) and will be accepted until September 29, 2022. 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.
