In this document, "Corporate Officers" refers to: * Board-appointed corporate officers of the ASF, and * President-appointed corporate officers of the ASF, and * V.P., Fundraising-appointed corporate officers of the ASF as specified at the URL: http://apache.org/foundation/ The current Directors and Corporate Officers of the Apache Software Foundation agree to: * Work hard to represent the broader interest of the Apache Software Foundation in producing software for the public good. * Rigorously follow the general ASF Code of Conduct,  with the effect of setting a good example for communications both inside and outside the Foundation. * Rigorously follow the Speaking Guidelines for ASF Directors and Officers.  * Seek to balance their contributions as both an advisor and a learner. * Be honest with others and true to themselves, but with the utmost respect for other individuals. * Refrain from trying to influence other Board member or Officers outside of board meetings and off of official mailing lists in ways that might have the effect of creating factions or limiting free and open discussion. * Be willing to be a dissenting voice, while working to build on other director’s and officer's ideas; offer alternative points of view as options to be considered, and invite others to do so too. * Be balanced in one’s effort to understand other board members and corporate officers, and to make oneself understood. * Once a board decision is made, support the decision even if one’s own view is a minority one: if necessary, disagree, and commit. * Fundamentally focus on transparency, yet respect the importance of confidentiality on sensitive issues, especially those relating to personnel and volunteers, security, or legal matters. * Limit use of the Director or Corporate Officer role to occasions when it is strictly required. : https://www.apache.org/foundation/policies/conduct.html : https://www.apache.org/press/guides/officer-speaking-guide.html
