As a non-profit organization, LPI has stakeholders, not shareholders, and focuses on its mission over profit. Our governance model includes a definition of a member which is designed to give our certified open source practitioners a say in the direction of the organization, as well as a number of other benefits. LPI is a member-based organization which encourages public trust while enabling practitioners to influence the direction and appreciation of their profession.
