Dear Foundation members,
You are invited to attend this year’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) for the GNOME Foundation, which similarly to GUADEC 2020 will be held as an online virtual event this year.
About the AGM
Every year, the GNOME Foundation’s Board of Directors sets aside some time at GUADEC for the Annual General Meeting (AGM). Everyone is invited to attend the AGM and hear updates on what has been happening at GNOME for the last year, and also to get to know the new Board members and ask any questions that they may have. If there are any items requiring a vote by the Foundation membership to resolve, a vote is conducted at the AGM.
Besides getting an update on what has happened at GNOME over the last year, and getting to know some of the GNOME Foundation leaders, there will be other fun things planned too. This year the GUADEC group photo might need a little more creative thinking, but normally features as part of the AGM along with our annual Pants Award ceremony. For clarity to any British English speakers, this means trousers - for a deserving community contributor!
