Join the Creative Commons Board of Directors

About CC, Community

We are now welcoming nominations to the CC Board of Directors.

Each year, we seek nominations from the Creative Commons community for thoughtful and talented individuals invested in the future of the organization.

The CC Board of Directors guides the strategic direction of Creative Commons, provides valuable expertise in key programmatic areas, and champions the activities of the organization. New board members will be joining a group of legal and policy experts, open advocates, and innovators as CC undergoes a strategy refresh and expands its commitment as the stewards of the commons and the CC licenses that enable sharing.

This year, we are looking for two to three global candidates familiar with non-profit governance who demonstrate some of the following skills:

We are especially excited to receive nominations from the Global South and Latin America, and from historically marginalized groups including women, people with disabilities, people of color, LGBTQ+ folks, and Indigenous peoples.

We welcome self-nominations. We also encourage community leaders to solicit nominations from community members and submit them on behalf of the group. Please use the nomination form to submit your nomination. Be sure to submit your nomination by June 13, 2024.

Nominations will be reviewed by the Governance and Nomination Committee, Angela Oduor Lungati (Chair), Delia Browne, James Grimmelmann, and Alek Tarkowski. Short-listed candidates will then be invited for an interview.

Thank you in advance for your ideas, and for all of the contributions you make as a member of our CC community to build a better future together.

There are many ways to support Creative Commons. If you would like to support CC but can’t commit to a governance role at this time, consider making a donation.
