🏛 The Telos Guardians:
Over the last quarter, the Guardians put on a round of elections to welcome in new members, and dove head first into finding a new CEO to take the reins as the year comes to a close.
We’ve recently published an article detailing what role each member on the team fills outside of these bigger campaigns; and have an election coming up in a couple of months! Read on to learn more and see how you can get involved.
In July, the community warmly welcomed 5 new elected Guardians to the Telos Foundation team. Congratulations to Lee Erswell, Ajinkya Jagtap (voted Vice Chair), Rigi, Max Mochi, and Brian Tse!
The search for a CEO is well underway and our current focus. Shortly after new Guardians were elected, we got to work learning what the community and team value in a CEO. We ran $1700 worth of paid advertising to bring attention to the role, then faced the difficult decision of sorting the many qualified candidates. We’re very close to a decision and have had the opportunity to get to know many impressive people along the way with the skills and experience to help the Foundation achieve its goals. Look out for the next quarterly report where we’ll be welcoming a new member to Team Telos!
There will be 4 Guardian seats up for election coming up in the new year (nominations begin January 5th) so stay tuned for more details and information if you’re interested in joining the Guardians. There are a few different ways that you can get involved in the election process:
- Nominate yourself or someone else & vote in the election
- Spread the word about the election and encourage others to participate!
