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 management of
the corporate assets (funds, intellectual property, trademarks, and support
equipment), appointment of a President and corporate officers managing
the core operations of the ASF, and allocation of corporate resources for the benefit of Apache projects.
Importantly, Technical decision-making authority for every
Apache project is assigned to their independent project management
committee; the participants in each project provide direction, not the board.
The board is elected annually by the ASF membership.
Board meetings and minutes are published on the board calendar. Many other public records of our corporation are published publicly. Information about Apache corporate governance and organization and how board meetings work are also available.
The current board of directors is:
Phil Steitz (chairman)
A listing of all officers of the ASF is also published.
