This form is for nominating individuals for election to the Free Software Foundation's (FSF) board of directors. The deadline for nominations will be updated when this board nomination form opens.

FSF board member nominees should have a history of supporting free software, and should, if elected, actively promote the Free Software Foundation and encourage and support its staff.

Knowledge of software development practices, copyright law, general management, programming, or nonprofit governance is considered potentially valuable, but these are not requirements for a good board member.
