Call for Volunteers

IX-Denver will be holding an election at our 2017 members meeting. A major part of the election will be selecting Board members. To ensure that IX-Denver has the best possible leadership, we are now calling for volunteers who are willing and able to serve our members as Directors.

Two Board seats are up for election in 2017, one of which is being vacated:

  • Chris Grundemann - Seeking re-election
  • Ryan Privette - Not seeking re-election

You can view all of the current Board members here.

We are seeking volunteers and nominations to fill these two open Board seats. To be considered; please send name, email, and a brief biograpohy to [email protected].

Responsibilities

As an all volunteer organization, IX-Denver relies heavily on its Board of Directors.

Some of the various tasks performed by current Board members include:

  • Setting strategic direction for the organization based on member input
  • Providing technical leadership to the organization based on industry best practices
  • Proposing and conducting configuration changes, upgrades, new installs, etc.
  • Developing new and existing software tools
  • Configuring member ports, route server sessions, etc.

  • Evangelizing the use of peering
  • Website and social media updates
  • Event planning and execution
  • Financial planning and book keeping

Not all members take on all of these tasks and this is not a comprehensive list. You will need to commit at least 10 hours per month to this position, including monthly online board meetings. Twice a year we meet in person for about a half a day.

Folks who live in Colorado and have many years of Internet technology related experience are prefered.
