Special election for Istio Steering Committee

Congratulations to Neeraj Poddar, member of the Istio Steering Committee, who has been appointed as Director of Engineering at Solo.io.

Because of our corporate diversity goals, and as Solo.io is already represented on the committee, a new member must be selected to replace him. We want to thank Neeraj for his service on Steering, and he will retain a leadership position in the project as a member of the Technical Oversight Committee.

As there were no runners up at the last Steering election, the committee will now vote to appoint a member to serve the rest of Neeraj’s term.

If you are interested in joining the Istio Steering Committee, please send an e-mail to istio-steering@googlegroups.com with a short paragraph about your contributions to Istio and why you’re interested in the position.

Nominations are open until 16 September. As Google, IBM, Red Hat, Salesforce, Solo.io, Tetrate and Huawei are currently represented, employees of those companies are ineligible for selection.
