Board participation requires a substantial ongoing investment of time and
energy. It is a volunteer effort that should not be undertaken lightly.
Should you be elected, expect to be called upon to serve both on the board
and on its committees where the work of the foundation is conducted. If
you're committed to OpenID and advancing open digital identity and are a
person who works well with others, we encourage your candidacy. The OIDF's
Executive Committee has suggested a few questions candidates may want to
publicly address in their candidate statements:


1. What is you view of the opportunity of the OpenID Foundation?

2. What are the key opportunities you see for the OpenID Foundation in 2012?

3. How will you demonstrate your commitment to the work of the foundation in
terms of resources, focus and leadership?

4. What would you like to see accomplished over the next year, and how do
you personally plan to make these things happen?

5. What resources can you bring to the foundation to help the foundation
attain its goals?

6. What current or past experiences, skills, or interests will inform your
contributions and views?


Times for all dates are Noon, U.S. Pacific Time.


If you experience problems participating in the election or joining the
foundation, please send an email to help at oidf.org
