Who runs for the board? People that care about the Python community, who want to see it flourish and grow and also have a few hours a month to attend regular meetings, serve on committees, participate in conversations and promote the Python community. You can learn more about what the PSF board does here.
You can nominate yourself or someone else, but no one will be forced to run, so you may want to consider reaching out to someone before nominating them. Nominations open on June 1st, so you have a few weeks to research the role and craft a nomination statement.
This year we’ll also be running office hours in Telegraph to answer questions about running for the board and serving on the board. Those will be announced soon!
