The board of Open Source Matters, at its most recent board meeting, voted to appoint Thomas Hampton as its new Treasurer.

Thomas previously served as Assistant Treasurer, in a non-board-member capacity. The OSM board felt it would be best for continuity to ask the Community Oversight Committee (COC) to add Thomas to the board, in line with our Statutes. The COC agreed.

The election of Thomas as our new Treasurer allows the board to release Ryan from that duty. Ryan graciously agreed to have his term extended until a new Treasurer was confirmed and elected. The position of Treasurer became vacant when our previous Treasurer, Paul Orwig, was elected President.

We thank Ryan for his help, and welcome Thomas to the board!

The board is currently reviewing nominees for new board members and will forward recommendations to the COC. An announcement of new board members is expected before the end of April 2012.
