Dear Foundation members,
You are invited to attend this year’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) for the GNOME Foundation, which is traditionally co-hosted with our annual GUADEC conference. As with last year, GUADEC is a virtual event so the AGM will be held as an online meeting.
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 the GNOME Foundation 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. The group photo normally features as part of the AGM but this is harder to achieve virtually - but you can expect to learn the recipient of our annual Pants Award (en_GB: trousers!) for a deserving community contributor!

The Board is looking forward to (virtually) seeing you at the AGM, and to celebrating our achievements over the last 12 months. If you have any questions before the meeting, please let us know and we’ll do our best to answer them.
President, GNOME Foundation Board of Directors
