The term of the current LLVM Foundation Board of Directors is coming to an end. We are looking for members of the LLVM community who are interested in joining the board and volunteering their time to our programs and supporting the LLVM project.
The application may be found here:
The LLVM Foundation is a nonprofit that supports the LLVM Project. We support the LLVM community by helping it to grow, foster community interactions, work to keep LLVM development productive through infrastructure, and work to ensure the long term health of the LLVM project.
The LLVM Foundation has established 3 main programs to help us in our community growth and education efforts: Educational Outreach (LLVM Developers’ Meetings, documentation, workshops, instructional videos), Scholarships & Grants, and Diversity and Inclusion in Compilers & Tools. We host much of the infrastructure (website, mailing lists, etc) supporting the LLVM Project. Please read our public documents for more information, available here (http://foundation.llvm.org/documents/).
The Board of Directors consists of 8 members serving 2 year terms, which then elect the next set of board members. In terms of time commitment, the board typically meets every month for 2 hours and every board member should plan on attending each meeting. At times a board member will take lead on a particular issue, doing the background research needed, forming a proposal, bringing to the Board for productive discussion and vote. Board members are expected to monitor the board mail lists to address time critical issues or continue discussions between board meetings. Board members should plan on attending at least EuroLLVM or the US LLVM Developers’ Meeting. In addition to the regular meeting, board members are expected to participate with and drive efforts aligned with the mission and three programs above. Officers of the Board (Secretary, Treasurer, President) have additional duties and time commitments.
We are looking for people who are passionate and enthusiastic about LLVM and its various sub-projects, and want to help it grow. Note, however, that the LLVM Foundation does not set the technical direction for the project. As such, we are particularly interested in people who will bring non-technical contributions to the board, particularly if they align with the mission and three programs mentioned above or improvements to the LLVM infrastructure.
The applications of the newly elected board members will be made public once board membership is finalized. You can view the applications of the previously elected board here. The new board will begin their term on August 12, 2020.
If you are interested in being considered as a future board member, please complete the following application by July 30 (11:59PM PDT).
If you have any questions, please let me know.
