ODK 1 TSC Election - Call for applications


(Yaw Anokwa) #1

It's been a little over a year since the @PMC selected the initial members of the ODK 1 @TSC and per our governance, it's time to hold another election!

If you have a technical background, this is your chance to step up as a volunteer leader, help influence the direction of ODK 1 (Collect, Build, Aggregate, Briefcase, JavaRosa, XForms), and help us grow! If you are interested in this opportunity or the process, read on for more important information.

The TSC will solicit applications from now through Jan 31st with the web form below. On Feb 1st, the TSC will post the text of the applications on the ODK Forum so the community can ask public questions of the candidates until Feb 14th. On Feb 21st, the TSC will announce the new TSC members.

So to summarize:

  • Jan 10, 2019 - Jan 31, 2019: Call for applications
  • Feb 01, 2019 - Feb 14, 2019: Call for public questions
  • Feb 15, 2019 - Feb 20, 2019: TSC discussion
  • Feb 21, 2019: Results announced

There is a 2-year term for TSC members, and minimum time commitment is 2-4 hours per month for TSC meetings. Asynchronous discussions are also likely to consume a few hours a month.

An ideal candidate would spend more time than that consistently participating in the community to contextualize the technical decisions the committee has to make. Other than meetings, the specific activities you may perform as a TSC member will vary based upon your unique skills and interests.

The roles and responsibilities of the TSC are described in detail at TSC Governance. Please read the entire document before applying and if you have questions, put them below.

I can't remember whether all current members that want to continue being part of the TSC have to send their applications in, or just the ones from the first elections.


(Yaw Anokwa) #3

Only members from the first election have to send in their application.

@yanokwa I remember that from the meeting, but I'm confused by the 2-year term comment above. Hasn't it just been one year?


(Yaw Anokwa) #5

The inaugural term for the first TSC members was 1 year. It’s 2 years after that.
