Membership Representative to the Board: 2022 Election

Nominations Closed. Voting Open.

We are now calling for nominations to represent the RISC-V International Strategic and Premier TSC members as well as Community members on the RISC-V Board of Directors!

Nominations are welcome May 2 through June 30. Voting will take place July 1 – July 31, with new representatives installed at the board meeting on August 18. You can self nominate using the form below and eligible candidates will be featured on this page as they are received. The following seats will be elected:

  • 3 Director representatives for Strategic & Premier TSC members
  • 1 Director representative for Community Organization members
  • 1 Director representative for Community Individual members

Board membership is an important responsibility. Elected Directors are members of and vote on behalf of their respective membership tier. Directors are expected to attend all board meetings, which are currently held at 7am Pacific time on the third Thursday of each month. At these meetings, they will represent the other RISC-V members at their level in discussions as well as votes, and will make themselves available for regular communication with the other members at their level. Representatives will vote on behalf of their membership tier, not for their specific companies. For more guidance on board member expectations and requirements, see Article 1 of the Internal Regulations.

Each board seat lasts for two years, provided that the Director’s organization remains a member in good standing during that time. All members of RISC-V International in good standing may nominate representatives between May 2 and June 30. All members of RISC-V International in good standing between July 1 – 31 may vote on the nominations. Ballot links will be sent to the voting member of record on July 1. Each member may vote only once. For those members unable to vote using this method, we can accommodate votes by email. Please note that nominations and votes can only be recorded by members of RISC-V International.

These are the important dates for this election:

  • May 2 through June 30: nominations accepted
  • June 30: last day for nominations
  • July 1: first day of voting
  • July 31: final day of voting (Voting closes at 5pm PDT)
  • August 18: first board meeting to include new representative Directors

You can nominate yourself using the form below. Approved nominations will be added to this page upon acceptance. Please contact the program managers at elections@riscv.org with any questions.
