As many of you know, we are in the process of forming a non-profit organization to support the continued growth of the OpenMRS community. Given that we all deeply believe that the success of this organization relies upon the contributions of people like you, it’s time to ask for a favor.
As I mentioned at this year’s Implementer’s Meeting, one element of establishing the non-profit is forming a Board of Directors. The purpose of this board is to provide guidance for the organization, and ensure that we adhere to the mission, vision, and values of OpenMRS. At this time, we need nominations from each of you for people you feel would best represent the implementer community. What does this mean? Basically, who are people that you all feel bring real world perspectives and fresh thinking to our collective work? Who are people you know who would be committed to OpenMRS’ long term success and would be comfortable holding the rest of us accountable to do the same? Who are people that have the insights that will lead us towards the real needs within the resource poor environments throughout the world?
We want your thoughts on people that would serve on the OpenMRS board in this capacity. To submit your nomination visit http://openmrs.org/nominate/. Please let us know before 30 September 2010. If you have any questions, feel free to write me: firstname.lastname@example.org
