By Taylor Dolezal, head of ecosystem at CNCF

I am thrilled to announce the election results for the new CNCF End User Technical Advisory Board (TAB), a significant milestone in making the cloud native ecosystem more user-centric and robust.

Our first End User TAB members are: 

These individuals bring vast experience and expertise to the table and represent a diverse range of industries, demonstrating the breadth of our end user community.

The End User TAB will serve as the voice of the end user community to ensure that the needs and perspectives of end users are represented effectively in CNCF community decisions. Among other responsibilities, the End User TAB will review and approve the publication of reference architectures; provide feedback to CNCF projects on usability, reliability, and performance; provide input on the state of the ecosystem from an end user perspective, including identification of gaps and priorities; and, increase visibility around end user adoption of CNCF projects.

We congratulate the newly elected and appointed members of the End User TAB. 

We invite the CNCF community to engage with the End User TAB, share your insights, and participate in this exciting venture!
