“The very first feelings I had when I was elected on the Board of Directors have not only been a great joy and pleasure but also a strong motivation and spirit of responsibility for what concerns the decisions and dedication every Board member should be enlightened with during his yearly commitment” -Andrea Veri
Serving on the board is very a challenging task that involve many difficult decisions, we wish the new board the best of luck in the the upcoming year.
The Foundation wants to express a special thanks to the outgoing board members: Andreas Nilsson who served as President, Joanmarie Diggs who served as Vice President and Emmanuele Bassi who served as Secretary. We also want to thank the candidates who were not elected this time, as this was a particularly heated election, with a lot of great discussion about the future of GNOME.
