As communicated [previously](http://news.perlfoundation.org/2017/11/tpf-to-start-public-nomination.html)....
The Perl Foundation is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization based in the United States. Currently its board of directors has six members and TPF will start annual nomination and election process of new members. Bringing new people to the board regularly, with some community input, will allow the organization to grow and increase its output.
Here are the details:
A new member should be nominated by one or more Board members.
The nominee must be an active volunteer of TPF at least for 180 days.
3\. Public hearing
Public post will be made to ask for input from the community. The post will have the nominee's bio and reasons for nomination.
Election will be made by the board members after feedback is gathered from the public.
If you would like to be nominated, please get in touch with one of the [TPF Board members](http://www.perlfoundation.org/board_of_directors) by March 5th with the followings:
* Why do you want to become a member of the TPF Board?
* What goals would you like to see TPF pursue in the next years?
They will be posted publicly.
