2023 Governing Board Election

The OpenJDK Governing Board oversees the structure and operation of the OpenJDK Community. It has two At-Large Members who serve for a term of one calendar year, nominally starting on the first day of April each year.

The two-week nomination period for candidates to fill those seats is now open. It will end at 23:00 UTC on Tuesday, 14 March 2023.

During this time any OpenJDK Member may nominate an individual who does not currently hold an appointed Governing Board seat to fill one of the At-Large seats. That individual need not already be an OpenJDK Member. An OpenJDK Member may make more than one such nomination.

To nominate someone, send an e-mail message to members at openjdk dot org with the subject line "GB Nomination: $NAME", where $NAME is the full name of the person you're nominating. Use the body of the message to make the best case you can for your nominee.

Nominees must accept their nominations by the start of voting. Those who do accept will be invited to submit short candidate statements to be posted below.

Voting will start on Wednesday, 15 March 2023 and run for two weeks. All OpenJDK Members as of the start of the voting period will be eligible to vote. Detailed information on voting logistics will be available shortly.


Three individuals were nominated, and each accepted his nomination. The candidate's own statement is as follows:
