Apereo Foundation Bylaws and Policy Review - October 2017
Periodically, the Apereo Foundation reviews its bylaws and policies. We want this to be an open process, so we're commencing by publishing our Welcoming Policy and Bylaws on a section by section basis through the Apereo instance of the Apereo Open Academic Environment (OAE). The headings below link to those sections. If you don't have an OAE account, you can view the materials but not comment. If you wish to comment drop me a line at ed [at] apereo.org and I'll set you up with an account. If you have an account on apereo.oaeproject.org, you're set to view and comment. Any problems, please drop me a line.
The Apereo Welcoming Policy was initially developed for Apereo events. It has been suggested that the policy might have broader and general applicability. Feedback and perspectives on the policy in this context would be particularly valuable.
This phase of the policy review concluded on November 10th. The Apereo Foundation Board of Directors is reviewing contributions, and will enact any policy and bylaw changes at the Board AGM on February 20th 2018.
