Eclipse Foundation Elections
The Eclipse Foundation holds elections for board members representing two very important groups
within the Eclipse membership: the committers and the Sustaining Members (Solutions Members and
Enterprise Members). The terms of office for these elected board members is one year, commencing
Candidates and the community are encouraged to discuss the issues on the Foundation forum.
Duties and Responsibilities of an Eclipse Foundation Director
- Directors have a fiduciary responsibility to the Eclipse Foundation. In brief, this means
that they must base their decisions on the needs of the Eclipse Foundation before those of
either themselves or their employer.
- In terms of time requirements, the Board meets once a month for a one-hour
conference call. It also meets face-to-face three times per year, typically in
March, June, and October.
- Expenses incurred by Directors who are employed by a Member Company are to be covered by the
Member company. Directors who are self-employed or employed by a non-Member may have their
expenses covered by the Eclipse Foundation.
