The Agile Government Leadership (AGL) Association, which began in 2014 as a community-based network of agile practitioners working for and with government, is seeking to expand Board representation beyond the pilot group that transitioned the network into a non-profit trade association earlier this year.

“We are recruiting forward-thinking technology leaders who are committed to transforming government programs and culture,” said Aaron Pava, Executive Director of AGL and Chief Experience Officer for CivicActions. “We are organizing as a group of practitioners from all levels of government and industry with a common goal of serving the public sector through openness and collaboration.”

“We are recruiting forward-thinking technology leaders who are committed to transforming government programs and culture.”

There are currently three vacant practitioner Board positions open to individuals serving government in the public or private sector. These seats will be filled through an application process with the goal of appointing leaders who will help promote the use of agile methodologies, user-centered design and free and open source software in government IT projects.

Once the three practitioner Board positions have been filled by individuals, AGL will consider corporate Board representation that aligns with the values, mission, and direction of the organization.

To apply for a position on the board or make a recommendation, visit the AGL website.
