About the TM Forum

Board of Directors

The Board of Directors has overall responsibility for the TM Forum on behalf of our members. Its key responsibilities are to determine how the TM Forum will serve the industry; to set strategy, direction and priorities and to guide strategic initiatives. As a not-for-profit organization, the Board aims to have a representative balance of member industry sectors and geographies though highly experienced senior executives. This balance includes various types of service provider; software companies, equipment suppliers and systems integrators.

Board members are appointed by Members at the Annual Meeting based on a slate of nominees proposed by the Board’s Nominating Committee. Detailed oversight of the Forum is devolved to the Board’s Executive Committee who meet frequently.
