Readium Foundation Expands Board - Election Underway

February 11, 2015

Ten candidates are running for three seats on the Readium Foundation Board of Directors. The ten candidates standing for election represent a wide range of Readium Foundation member organizations, from IT industry giants such as IBM and Deutsche Telekom to leading publishing industry solution providers, and hail from seven different countries in North America, Europe and Asia. This strong engagement reflects the continued growth of Readium.org as a global collaboration to promote the adoption of EPUB and the Open Web Platform for publishing via open source technology development. The Board was expanded to 9 members,serving staggered 3-year terms, at a member meeting last month. The current election, which will run through February 27, also includes a bylaws amendment proposed by the current Board to clarify the process for amending the bylaws.
