Reorganizing for a changing Drupal

Drupal 8 creates many opportunities for organizations worldwide to build something amazing for complex web solutions, mobile, SaaS, the Internet of Things, and so much more. The Drupal Association is reorganizing to help create these opportunities.

Ready to Serve

After five and a half years of serving the Drupal community as a Drupal Association staff member, I’m honored (and thrilled!) to step into the Executive Director role. This community is magical. Your generosity, kindness, and drive to create something meaningful together inspire me every day. Drupal 8 is destined for success, because each drop of code captures this ethos.

Hello, World! (Goodbye, Drupal Association)

My first day on the job, I got on an airplane and flew to Australia to attend DrupalCon Sydney. As first days on the job go, that’s gotta be up there as one of the best. It definitely set the tone for life in the Drupal community - it’s been an exciting adventure every single day. I’ve traveled around the world, worked with incredibly smart people, and learned four or five Git commands (thanks Cathy!).

Make it official with your certificate of membership

Today we begin our first membership campaign of the year. It’s all about making your contribution official with a personalized certificate of membership.

In our 4th year of running this campaign, we hope that you will help us by either joining the Drupal Association or by letting others know about this opportunity. Members who join or renew from now through June 30 will be sent a certificate. Our goal is to send 675 certificates, which is a 10% increase from last year’s final count.

Honoring DrupalCon Volunteers

Hello, Drupal world! We are thrilled to be able to give you an inside peek at what goes into planning DrupalCons. Throughout 2016, we’ll share a series of posts, and a few webcasts, to show some behind-the-scenes aspects of DrupalCon. In honor of National Volunteer Week, this month's DrupalCon post highlights how an army of amazing, dedicated volunteers is behind every DrupalCon.

Call for Designer Partners for 2017 European DrupalCon

The Drupal Association is seeking a Design Partner for creative and graphic design services for the 2017 European DrupalCon. We’re looking for people who understand that each DrupalCon is a singular expression of the Drupal community, DrupalCon location, software innovation, and extreme nerdiness and know how to turn this into compelling designs that are functional, fun, and make people look twice.

The Design Partner’s main responsibilities include:

Two new board members for the Drupal Association

At the Drupal Association, we love to highlight that contribution comes in all forms. We are extremely grateful to the Association board members who contribute an enormous amount of time and are so generous with their knowledge and contacts in building a stronger Drupal community. Anyone who has ever served on or worked with a board knows that it's important, hard, and sometimes fun work. 

We're thrilled that two more folks are joining us on the board. Help us welcome them both:

A thank you note to Supporters who help fund Drupal.org

The Drupal.org Engineering team is on a roll with many new improvements, thanks to Drupal organizations who fund their work by joining the Supporting Partner Program. In March alone, the team made more progress on Composer for Drupal, content restructuring of the Documentation section, and better data insight into organizational contributions.
