YAPC Europe Foundation - People

The YEF board is comprised of a committee and co-opted members. The main difference between the two groups is that the committee members are legally affiliated with YEF whereas the co-opted members have not filed the paperwork necessary to become committee members. New board members generally begin as co-opted members. Co-opted members have almost exactly the same voting rights as committee members.
