Sahana Software Foundation announces reconstitution of the Board of Directors

It is with great pleasure that I can announce, that Sahana Software Foundation effective 23rd June 2014, reconstituted the Board of Directors, following the Annual Meeting of the Board of Directors.

I am especially pleased that we can congratulate Chamindra de Silva and Brent Woodworth back on the Board of Directors. I look forward to our continuous cooperation at the board, as we take further steps in direction of developing Sahana Software Foundation to live up to its mission.

On behalf of the Foundation, I will also like to warmly thank Past Board Director Louiqa Raschid for her outstanding leadership and determination as the Chair of the Sahana Board from 2007 to 2009, and her true commitment and dedication to the function as Treasurer and Chairman of the Financial Oversight Committee the past 5 years; just to mention a few of all the things Louiqa have contributed with. We are so fortunate that Louiqa has promised to stay engaged with Sahana. We warmly thank Louiqa and wish her all the best.

I will also like to warmly thank Past Board Director Leslie Hawthorn for her commitment to work for Sahana. As some of you might remember, Leslie has been a strong supporter of Sahana for years. She has run the Google Summer of Code Program for Google as their Open Source Programs Manager, helped us to move our infrastructure over to Oregon State University Open Source Lab (OSUOSL), and has also supported our community development initiatives. Unfortunately Leslie has to concentrate on other projects which she feels will not do justice to Sahana. We warmly thank Leslie and wish her all the best.
