The voting community is composed of the primary contacts from all ONF members classified as Partners or Members. The list of Primary Representatives from each Member Company is maintained by the ONF. Member companies should review their representative periodically, and should notify the ONF if they wish to update their primary representative(s) before voting begins.
Background - Each member company has a designated Primary Representative. This role is used for administrative tasks like reviewing IPR protected documents, bylaw changes, annual renewals, and voting for the board at-large seat. In cases where multiple representatives are listed for a member company, one of the representatives is identified as the primary. All member companies are encouraged to review this list and adjust their representatives as they see fit.
Nominations can be made by any individual from any member company. Nominees must be employed by a member company not already represented on the board. Please submit nominations to Jo Marcus
In the event that there is only a single nomination for the position, there will not be a vote.
Each company has a single vote. The voting URL will be sent to the primary representative from each company. The voting URL may only be used once.
Every company should review their list of primary representatives and notify the ONF if they wish to provide updates before voting begins.
A majority is required to win the election (someone must receive > 50% of cast ballots). If no nominee has a majority of the vote, a runoff election will be held between the top two candidates.
