SPDX Steering Committee Nominations
Dear SPDX community,
We are approaching the end of the current term for several members of the SPDX Steering Committee. We are reaching out to let the community know about the upcoming nomination and selection process for new Steering Committee members.
The governance page on the SPDX website lists the current Steering Committee and terms. As you can see, the following Steering Committee positions will be need to be filled through this process:
Additionally, the Steering Committee will select a new Chair for a one-year term.
The Steering Committee will fill the roles effective May 1, 2023.
The Steering Committee would also like to take a moment to thank those whose terms are ending. Many thanks to Bob Martin and May Wang who have served as SPDX’s first-ever Member Representatives this year. And a special thanks to Gary O’Neal (Tech Team), Paul Madick (Legal Team) and Jack Manbeck (Outreach Team), each of whom have been part of SPDX’s leadership for years and have put in countless hours to help the project get to where it is today. My own term is ending as well.
Below you will find more information regarding the selection process, nomination dates and next steps / action items. If you are interested in nominating someone for a position, please review the main SPDX Project Governance Policy.
Phil, for the SPDX Steering Committee

The Member Representatives consist of 1-2 individuals, nominated by Members of the SPDX project (companies) and selected by the Steering Committee to represent the interests of the Members of the SPDX community.
