IxDA Board of D...

Reviewing nominations for the 2010-2012 IxDA Board of Directors

I'm happy to let the community know that 20 people (which includes 2 current
board members) have put their names forth for consideration for the IxDA
Board of Directors.

IxDA relies on the leadership that emerges from the community, so we are
very thankful for this show of support.

Next steps:

We plan on notifying the nominees of the Board's decision no later than
December 18th, 2009. After acceptance of the position, we will then
announce the 2010-2012 Board to the community.
