Election of Directors on the Board and Terms of Office

In the running up to an Annual GDN Meeting, the Immediate Past President will invite participants to submit nominations for  upcoming vacant board positions. A sub-committee of the Board, chaired by the Immediate Past President will present candidates for appointment as director for approval by the Board. The Board will preferably consider Founders, Patrons and Signatories who contribute financially to the Foundation and who contribute to a diverse Board, taking into account: data providers (e.g. institutions); data custodians (e.g. depositories); data owners (e.g. representative student bodies); international membership associations active in the field of education; geographic spread across the continents; and diversity and inclusivity of Board membership as a whole.

Board membership is held in a personal capacity and not representative of any organisation, directors acting in  the interests of the GDN alone. The Board consists of a minimum of seven and a maximum of twelve members, to be decided by the Board. Directors will serve from the date of appointment for a maximum of three years, after which they can be reappointed only once. The term of office for each board member is given in the listing above. Directors step down in accordance with a rotation schedule drawn up by the Board.
