We are excited to welcome newly elected Governing Board members of the OpenSSF: Tracy Miranda from Chainguard, Duane O’Brien from Indeed, and Stephen Chin from JFrog. This February, the OpenSSF held an election among our membership for three General Members Representatives, per the terms of the OpenSSF Charter in which each general member has one vote to elect a GB representative. The OpenSSF Governing Board is responsible for overall management of the OpenSSF, including approving major decisions, managing the budget, and establishing advisory bodies or committees to support the OpenSSF’s mission.
Meet our new members whose term will begin on March 1st.

Chin supports and advocates on behalf of developers in his roles as chair of the CDF governing board, and as a board member of the CNCF and Rust Foundations. Combining Chin’s passion for tech and motorcycling has resulted in evangelism tours in Europe, Japan, and Brazil, interviewing hackers in their natural habitat. His love for coding and developers has been passed down to his daughters who teach kids to code at events like CNCF Kids Day, Devoxx4Kids, OSCON, and Black Girls Code.
Welcome to the OpenSSF Governing Board! Thank you to each of the candidates who ran in the election. We look forward to continuing to work together to secure our open source software ecosystem and support open source users and communities in service of this goal.
