Linux Professional Institute 2022 Board Election results

The Linux Professional Institute (LPI) announces the results of the 2022 Board of Directors elections, ending on June 25th at 1330 UTC.  Kenneth Armstrong of LPI staff was the Returning Officer. 

In 2021 LPI had its first election of the Board of Directors, which resulted in ten Board members.

In alphabetical order they were:

  • VM (Vicky) Brasseur - USA
  • Duffy Fron – USA (current)
  • Dorothy Gordon – Ghana (current)
  • Jon "maddog" Hall – USA (current)
  • Klaus Knopper - Germany
  • Mark Phillips - USA
  • Uirá Ribeiro - Brazil
  • Torsten Scheck – Germany (current)
  • Bryan J Smith – USA (current)
  • Thiago Sobral – Brazil

These Board members were then ordered by the number of votes they received in the preferential election and the board members were allowed to pick the length of their term, either three, two or one year.

Torsten Scheck, Bryan Smith and BM (Vicky) Brasseur all received one-year terms, so in 2022 their seats were available for filling.

Torsten and Bryan both chose not to run for another term, and Vicky chose to run again.

LPI had a slate of five candidates (including Vicky) for the three slots.

The candidates were:

  • Michinori Nakahara
