As mentioned in the notes from the recent Board meeting, the Gold Member Committee, chaired by Simon Anderson, was expanded to include both Gold and Platinum Member candidates. The expanded committee is currently working with a number of interested companies to help them prepare to present at the November Board Meeting.

The deadline for any companies who may be interested in applying for Platinum or Gold Membership to provide their official signed agreements and application is October 17th. Feel free to reach out to me if your organization is interested or if you have any questions. Thanks,

Normally the Platinum Member term is three years, but for the initial term, Class A members have a slightly shorter term that ends December 31, 2014 per the Platinum Member Agreement (http://www.openstack.org/legal/platinum-member-policy/). Nebula was a Class A Platinum Member who has decided not to renew their membership beyond this year, although they may apply for Gold Membership starting in 2015.

I’d like to have a discussion at the Board meeting on Thursday to determine how to handle new Platinum Member applications and will provide more detail after the meeting. One possible option is to expand the Gold Member Committee to cover Platinum Member openings as well. In reviewing the criteria, it doesn’t look like there is a lot that is extremely specific to the Gold Member class.
