Every year, the GNOME Foundation's Board of Directors sets aside some time at GUADEC for the Annual General Meeting (AGM). Everyone is invited to attend the AGM and hear updates on what has been happening at GNOME for the last year, and also to get to know the new Board members and ask any questions that they may have. If there are any items requiring a vote by the Foundation membership to resolve, a vote is conducted at the AGM.

Why attend?

Besides getting an update on what has happened at GNOME over the last year, and getting to know some of the GNOME Foundation leaders, there will be other fun things planned too. Sometimes we do give-aways and prizes, and will take a break for the GUADEC group photo -- which you'll definitely want to be part of to prove you attended GUADEC 2019! At the end of the AGM, we'll do our annual Pants Award ceremony. Yes, we give away trousers. You'll see what we mean if you attend.

Agenda for this year's AGM (subject to change):

Introduction to new Board of Directors

Reports on the previous 12 months

Break for group photo for GUADEC 2019


Vote on bylaw changes
