In fact you do not need to be a PSF member to stand as a candidate for its board.

To attain voting status in the PSF you foo need to do a little more than just sign up (which masks you a non-voting member). Support a working group, for example.

As it happens the PSF has just cancelled the current board election with 23 candidates for 11 places due to a minor procedural irregularity, so there may be time to nominate someone else. Or there may not. We are still waiting for the practical outcome.
