[Osmf-talk] OSMF Members Request for a General Meeting

All this dross being talked about like working out how long a director has been in post in months is really detracting from the work the directors should be doing.


If it’s that important to you DIY, the information is all out there if you look.


Stop wasting everyone’s time and let’s see a reality check!

Thanks Sarah, this is handy. I would love to see an update of the foundation page on the wiki (yup, transparancy) to show the running time of board members in months. I suppose I can do this, but it would be more logical for the current board to do this task since they have the obligation to set up voting for the special resolutions.


It might also be handy that the board or Simon resolves any doubts (like the chairman emeritus period, Dermot to stand down or not etc.)


Cheers, Johan

There is a nice table of board history in the wiki that allows
to easily compute that:

However, it is an interesting statistic for everyone,
so here is the complete list of people effected ordered by
the number of years they still can serve if SR1 is accepted
(including this 2014 term). The number in brackets
provides the year when their serving time is reset if SR2 is
accepted and they are not on the board in this and following years
(i.e. for serving members it would mean to stand down now). Where
the year is missing, people have already reached the required
years of absence from the board and can run for another full
4 years immediately.

(*) This is a rough estimate. Reality is a bit more complicated
    because the election date was different every year
                and we have a rather high number of mid-term resignations.

Steve Coast            0  (2017-2021) 1)
Mikel Maron            0  (2017)
Henk Hoff              0  (2020)
Oliver Kühn            0  (2018)

Andy    Robinson         1
Michael         Collinson    1
Richard         Fairhurst    1  (2015)     2)
Matt    Amos             1  (2017)
Dermot  McNally        1  (2017)

George  James          2
Simone  Cortesi        2
Frederik        Ramm         2  (2016)
Simon Poole            2  (2016)

Corey   Burger         3
Nick    Black            3
Emilie  Laffray        3
Iván    Sánchez Ortega   3
Kate    Chapman          3  (2015)

1) For Steve matters are complicated because it is unclear if his status
as chairman emeritus counts as board time. If not, he can stand for
reelection 2017 already, if yes, he has to wait until 2021.

2) Richard has actually served 3 years but with a break in between,
so the first year would count as reset already, I believe.

Hope that helps.
