TPF Advisory Board
The TPF Advisory Board is for people who want to be connected to The Perl Foundation in a non-executive, non-operational and non-technical capacity, where the board can draw on knowledge and experience, and seek support where needed.
Members are invited by the board and may include retired board members or specific key members of the wider community.
What is the role of the Advisory Board?
The role of the Advisory Board is to support TPF Board in a non-voting capacity. The aim is to have access to tacit knowledge and experience. Apart from general dialogue between the members, TPF Board and communities only expect occasional support from the Advisory Board.
Who can sit on the Advisory Board?
Members of the Advisory Board are selected by TPF Board. Those invited to join include former Board or Committee members, or external people who could offer significant value by joining the board.
Current members of the Board may also participate in the Advisory Board communications.
How are members invited?
Invitation letters are sent electronically by TPF President. There is no automatic membership of the Advisory Board. It is strictly by invitation only.
How does one leave the Advisory Board?
A member can give notice at any time or may be asked to leave by the sitting TPF president.
How do members communicate?
A low-volume mailing list is set up for members to communicate with each other and between TPF Board liaison and the Advisory Board.
Who is Chair of the Advisory Board?
The position of Chair and liaison with TPF Board is held by the sitting TPF president who will keep the communications open.
What is expected of a member of the Advisory Board?
Members provide help and assistance to our organisation where possible for future and historical issues. TPF Board may occasionally invite Advisory Board members to join board meetings.
All members of the Advisory Board are expected to be exemplars of professional behaviour and role models for our community.
Advisory Board members will be listed on TPF website along with a one-line bio and photo. They will be subscribed to the Advisory Board low traffic email list.
