Why be a member?

Members – more formally known as the "Board of Trustees" – are a crucial part of The Document Foundation. They are people from across the globe who contribute time, effort and skills, whether on a voluntary or paid basis. Members can vote for the Board of Directors (aka BoD) and the Membership Committee (MC), and also nominate themselves for a position in the BoD and the MC.

Oh, and they get @libreoffice.org email addresses as well! Watch this short video to learn more (or click for a WebM version – music by Scott Holmes):
