Board of Directors Election Process
Led by the Election Committee, there will be two election types that will take place: direct election and slate election. The Magento Association is holding this election to bring three new members onto the Board of Directors.
Note: you must be a paying member of the Magento Association in order to vote in the election as a member.
The 2022 slate election, led by the Election Committee, is currently in progress. A slate of two new board members have been selected by the Election Committee and since been approved by the Magento Association board. Paid members now have the ability to view the slate and vote to approve it. Click here to vote on the slate by 5 August, 2022.
Slate Election Voting Guidelines
- Only paid members of the association are eligible to vote, per our election guidelines. If you are not a paid member and want to vote on the slate, sign up for our Patreon account so you can contribute to the decision of the future leadership of the association. Votes from members who are not paid members will be discounted.
- You will have the opportunity to vote once to approve or disapprove the slate. Please note, you will not be voting for individual candidates, but rather voting for the slate as a whole.
- At least 100 paid members need to vote on the slate. If the majority votes to approve the slate, the two candidates above will be immediately elected onto the board. If the majority does not approve the recommended slate, the Election Committee is tasked with preparing a new slate selection.
How to Vote
To access the slate election form, you must log in to the Magento Association website using your login credentials. If you do not know your login credentials, you can reset your password at the bottom of the login page or email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.

The Board of Directors direct election happened this May. All applications were available to all members to view and the membership team elected one new board member from the candidates.
The winner of the direct election was announced at MA Connect on 7 June and the remaining candidates who did not win the direct election have moved to the slate election.
