It's election time: DIF Steering Committee
The Decentralized Identity Foundation is governed by a volunteer board, chaired by our Executive Director, known as the Steering Committee (SC for short), which is democratically elected by DIF Associate membership. The SC’s responsibility is to represent DIF membership and define the vision, goals and strategy of our organization. Our current Steering Committee members are listed on our homepage here.
To ensure the Steering Committee is representative of the interests and diversity of our community, and that the DIF is able to continue to grow and evolve, we commit to holding regular Steering Committee Elections, with the candidates nominated from, and by, the community. The role of the SC, along with the election process, is described publicly in our governance documentation here and here.
Any member of DIF can submit a nomination for a candidate and all DIF members (including individuals) are eligible for nomination.
Nominations for SC candidates are open from today, 6th of April 2022! Any member of DIF can submit a nomination for a candidate and all DIF members (including individuals) are eligible for nomination. Nominations remain open for one month, closing at 23:59 GMT on Friday 6th May 2022.
We are looking for people who are passionate about digital transformation and innovation, who have a strong sense of social responsibility and who want to help shape the future identity landscape. Feel free to nominate standout members of the community, those with fresh ideas or industry experience. You can even nominate yourself if you so choose!
To submit a nomination, please send an email directly to firstname.lastname@example.org with the candidate's full name and contact details. Once nominations are in, we will post an update outlining the next steps in the election process and introducing the candidates.
We are also looking for questions and discussion points from the community for each nominee to address, to help voters decide who best aligns with their priorities and vision for DIF. Please send these topics to email@example.com. (Please note: making a nomination is not a requirement to submit a question)
As always, if you have any questions about the process, concerns about becoming a candidate, please reach out to us directly by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and don't forget to follow our Twitter for regular updates!
