LPI is a Canadian-based global non-profit supporting the growth of open source through education, careers, and building professionalism. It has delivered more than 400,000 certification exams since its formation in 1999.

Recently, LPI changed its bylaws to evolve into a membership-based governance model through which its certified practitioners elect the Board and determine the organization's direction. It is now in the process of developing a global membership program to accomplish this goal.

This session will identify and address the challenges faced in creating the infrastructure necessary to support this program, the approaches and solutions proposed, and the opportunities and benefits. Issues specifically to be addressed include:
  • International issues, from collection of dues to language diversity to the balance betwen global and local organization
  • Technical infrastructure, from the obvious needs of member management to communications, virtual meetings and secure voting
  • Promotion, outreach and ongoing engagement and support of members
