Community-led development "The Apache Way"
The Board of Directors of The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) is responsible for
management and oversight of the business and affairs of the corporation in
accordance with the Bylaws. This includes managing corporate assets (funds, intellectual property, trademarks, and support
equipment), appointing a President and corporate officers to manage
the core operations of the ASF, and allocating corporate resources for the benefit of Apache projects.
Importantly, the ASF assigns technical decision-making authority for every
Apache project the project's independent Project Management Committee (PMC). Participants in each project provide its direction, not the board.
The ASF membership elects to board annually.
Board meetings and minutes are published on the board calendar. Many other public records of our corporation are publicly available. Information about Apache corporate governance and organization and how board meetings work are also available.
The current board of directors is:
Roy T. Fielding
