YSI Community Board

Vote by 6 May 2021

The YSI Community board is an elected body of experienced YSI members. They advise the working groups and YSI Management on broad community developments and the health of the community.

From 2016-2020, Asgeir B. Torfason, Maria C. Schweinberger, Melissa Vergarez Fernandez, Marcos Reis and Danilo Spinola served on the YSI Community Board, then known as the CRC. They guided many important developments of our community structures and governance processes. Together with the YSI Management team, this work is outlined in the State of the Community Report, which was prepared for the YSI Plenary.

The Election Process:
The YSI Community Board is elected in two stages. Between 16-21 April, the YSI coordinators and organizers elected the first two members: Christina Mosalagae and Lilian Rolim. Danilo Spinola, who served on the previous board, has been chosen as chairman. Between 29 April and 6 May, you are invited to help elect the remaining two members.
