+A director is expected to participate in the fortnightly IRC meeting to discuss current business and to attend the annual meeting of the X.Org Foundation, which will be held at a location determined in advance by the Board of Directors.
+
+A member may nominate themselves or any other member they feel is qualified. Nominations should be sent to the Election Committee at elections at x.org.
