Why You Should Nominate Yourself
You don’t have to be a developer or software engineer to hold a position on the Board or BCC. If you are a dedicated member of the community and have a vision for the future of TYPO3, you will be a valuable asset to the team.
A breadth of work and life experience means that you can better represent the community and help make decisions that govern TYPO3 and its ecosystem.
Feel like you can’t commit to the time required? Don’t be deterred. Everyone has to start somewhere, and new members will be assisted to ramp up in small steps according to their own availability. The more experienced members will help you learn the ropes and get familiar with the position.

Starting from today until 5 April 2022, anyone can nominate themselves for the vacant positions. Please use only the official nomination form to submit your nomination:
You can also suggest others for a role in either body of the TYPO3 Association. The Board will take care of contacting the recommended persons.
