You can apply, whether your company is a member or not of France-IX, except if you are already a board member of another Internet Exchange Point, or if you already work for another Internet Exchange Point.

- Represent the association France-IX, and be a spokesperson;

The candidate who receives the greatest number of votes is elected and announced at the end of the GM day, as well as on France-IX’s website and social networks the day after.

What should I expect?
France-IX Board Members do not get any kind of salary, bonus or discounts on peering services. Only expenses during the face-to-face meetings may be reimbursed.
France-IX Board Members get fulfilled by their involvement in a professional eco-system of over 500 members and their contribution to help France-IX to grow year after year. Actually, technical matters are rarely discussed during Board Meetings but instead Board Members contribute to bring innovation, ideas with member satisfaction, and more generally, ideas to keep improving France-IX performance and services, and finally they are the guardians of France-IX sustainability in the long term.
