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. We’re pleased to be able to say that this year’s AGM is a hybrid event welcoming in-person and remote participants at this year’s GUADEC in Riga, Latvia.
About the AGM
Every year, the GNOME Foundation’s Board of Directors sets aside some time at GUADEC for the Annual General Meeting (AGM). Foundation and community members are 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 can be 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. You can learn who will receive our annual Pants Award (en_GB: trousers!) for a deserving community contributor - we’re currently accepting nominations for the Pants Award.
