The OpenCog Foundation is a nonprofit organization, incorporated in the US state of Delaware.

OCF is a democratically run organization, with a Board elected by its membership, where the latter is defined as individuals who have substantially contributed to the OpenCog project, and have asked to become formal members and been approved by the Board.

If you would like to become a formal member of OpenCog Foundation and participate in its formal governance please email info@opencog.org and say so.

At the moment there is very little formal governance activity, in practice.  The founding Board consists of Ben Goertzel, Cassio Pennachin, Nil Geisweiller and Joel Pitt; it was instantiated Jan. 1, 2012, and according to the Constitution, these Board members will be up for re-election in 2015.
