Dear FINOS Community,

As you may have heard, on July 19th 2023, the Technical Oversight Committee became an official body of the FINOS charter. This group has a number of responsibilities including, shaping and growing the overall landscape of projects, and providing strategic direction to the board.

There are currently 2 vacant seats at the TOC and today we’re announcing the opening for candidacies, starting on Monday 18 September and closing on Monday 2 October.

If you’re either an active contributor of a FINOS project or an employee of a (FINOS) member organization, you can follow these simple steps to submit your candidacy:

  1. Review TOC responsibilities and ways of working; feel free to contact if you have any questions.

  2. Open a Github issue on with the following information:

    1. Title: [TOC Candidacy] <full name of the candidate>

    2. Affiliation: <name of the company you work for ; if not applicable, type “Independent”>

    3. Bio

    4. Reasons for candidacy: <member OR active contributor of project x,y,z or both>

Here's the full timeline:

  • Monday 18 September - candidacy opens

  • Monday 2 October - candidacy closes

  • Monday 9 October - voting opens

  • Friday 13 October - voting closes

  • Monday 16 October - new TOC members are announced

This is a fantastic opportunity to influence the direction of FINOS, through providing knowledge and insight.

Regards, Colin E.

I just want to remind everyone that your chance to put yourself, or someone else, forward closes at the end of today.

Thanks everyone, Colin E.
