Re: Interest in joining the board of directors of the GNOME foundation

Hi Pratham,

The first step to becoming a board member is by gaining for your GNOME Foundation membership. You can become a member once you start contributing and working to help the foundation and the GNOME project. Once you have a sizable amount of contributions you can apply for membership, and the membership committee will decide your membership status. Once a member, you will get all the perks of membership including a blog, email address, travel sponsorship, and the ability to vote or run in Foundation elections.

Given your interest at such a young age, I'd say you definitely have what it takes to be a future board member! For now, I'd focus on school and contributing to GNOME wherever you find passion, and that will allow you to work towards your membership. Then, in a future election cycle, you should 100% put your name down as a candidate for the Board of Directors! :-)

Hello there, I am Pratham Prasoon, a sophomore in an high school in India, I wish to join the board of directors as I truly understand the importance of running an open source organization like gnome and how many people around the world are affected in positive ways. I know that I probably do not have the proper qualifications for this position, but all I can say is whenever I do something, I do it with full effort and passion. I am grateful for all the work gnome has done in the past and I will continue supporting it.

If I can help the gnome in any way,like an internship or any other way,please let me know.

Yours Truly,
Pratham Prasoon
