The Agile Alliance has elected a new Board of Directors during Agile 2008. The votes could be cast via email and in person during the conference.

The Board has the following new members:

  • Tamara Sulaiman - ScrumMaster for InfoTech and  SolutionsIQ. She runs her own consulting company now, called Applied Scrum. She served as Executive Director of the American Malaysian Chamber of Commerce (AMCHAM) for four years.
  • Paul Culling - Board member of Agile Vancouver for the past 2 years. He has also worked with VersionOne for almost 2 ½ years. He is involved in supporting user groups and Agile communities at a local, regional and national level.

Rachel Davies, Jennitta Andrea, and Todd Little were members of the Board in 2006/2007 and have been reelected.

The Board has the following continuing members:

  • Laurent Bossavit
  • Esther Derby
  • Luke Hohmann
  • Diana Larsen
  • J.B. Rainsberger

The Alliance expressed its gratitude to Mike Griffiths, Ryan Martens, and Willem van den Ende, outgoing members of the Board.

Johanna Rothman was elected** Conference Chair for the Agile2009 conference, to be held in Chicago. Johanna is the author of "Manage It! Your Guide to Modern, Pragmatic Project Management", as well as the coauthor of "Behind Closed Doors: Secrets of Great Management" and the author of "Hiring the Best Knowledge Workers, Techies & Nerds: The Secrets and Science of Hiring Technical People".

** Correction:  InfoQ previously stated here that Johanna was also elected Board Chair. This is incorrect, as the board elects its officers at the first meeting following the conference, to be held September 12th.
