Live town-hall meetings with the 2023 TDF Board of Directors Election candidates

Dear Community, dear Members,
in my previous announcement of the 2023 TDF Board of Directors Election [0] I mentioned that the Membership Committee would like to continue the traditional live town-hall sessions with the Board of Directors candidates.

We finalized the preparation of the sessions and we would like to invite all the candidates and the community.
There are three sessions planned on three different days for making it easier for contributors on different timezones to find a suitable slot.



  1. Wednesday, December 13th at 21.00-22.00 BRT / Thursday, December 14th at 00.00-01.00 UTC / 01.00-02.00 CET: session suitable for BRT timezone[1]
  2. Thursday, December 14th at 21.00-23.00 JST / 12.00-14.00 UTC / 13.00-15.00 CET: session suitable for JST timezone[2]
  3. Friday, December 15th at 20.00-22.00 CET / 19.00-21.00 UTC: session suitable for CET timezone[3]

Some reminders and clarifications:

  • Please note that the first and third sessions will take place on two different days depending on the timezones, check the provided time converter for verifying the correct date and time in your timezone.
  • The first session will last one hour, the second and the third two hours.
  • The sessions are optional (both for the candidates and the community) and everyone of you is of course invited. :slight_smile:
  • If you want you can also attend all the sessions.
  • We didn’t ask to pre-register yourself for leaving everyone free to decide to join also at the very last minute. This implies that we don’t know how many people will show up during the live sessions.
  • We would like to give to the attendees also the chance to ask questions in a language different from English. In every session we will have a community member that will do live translations when needed.
  • The questions to the candidates will be in English or translated to English.
  • We would like to record the sessions in particular for the TDF members that will be not able to join the live session.
  • We try our best for organizing the live Q&A sessions with candidates in one week, be patient and remember to have fun!

Some notes on Jitsi:

  • Mute yourself while not speaking. :slight_smile:
  • If you don’t want to be recorded remember to keep your video off.
  • If you don’t want to have your voice recorded, feel free to type in the chat.
  • Please, keep in mind that also the chat will be recorded.

If something is unclear, please, feel free to reach out.

On behalf of the Membership Committee,
Marina Latini
