In the Articles of Association, this bit talks about how the Chairman  
is chosen:

> The Board shall from time to time elect a Chairman who shall be  
> entitled to preside at all meetings of the Board at which he shall  
> be present, and may determine for what period he is to hold office

The Chairman is an important role as he/she gets a casting vote in  
meetings and the final say on the eligibility of voters. More  
generally, they have the chance to influence discussions as the person  
who chairs the meetings, and will also be seen as the public face of  

Steve has, of course, been OSMF Chairman for a three-year term which  
is now up.

Could the candidate directors say:

- whether they would like, or be willing, to serve as Chairman?
- or, if not, do they have any views on who they would propose for the role?
