Board Application

Now that the Metaverse Standards Forum is incorporated, we are ready to establish the Interim Board of Directors to serve until the first full Board election in January 2024. The Board has a pivotal role in shaping the Forum’s success. The Interim Board will be comprised of up to 11 Directors elected by and from Principal members. There will be up to 3 seats reserved for non-Large Enterprises. Any Principal member may nominate a Director to stand for Board election, however, that member organization must have fully executed the new membership agreement and, if membership dues apply, have made payment or issued a PO before balloting starts.
