Drupal Association Board Meeting Summary: 14 May 2014

If there is any steady measure of the passage of time it may just be the monthly Drupal Association Board Meetings. Another month is behind us, meaning that we 30ish days closer to DrupalCon Austin and all the other work we have planned for the year.

Please Welcome Mike Lamb & Rob Gill to the Drupal Association Board of Directors

I’m excited to announce that the Drupal Association Board of Directors has filled two open seats on the Board. Please welcome Mike Lamb of Pfizer and Rob Gill of NBC Universal. Mike and Rob fill board-appointed seats rather than the At-Large seats that are filled via community vote (by the way, stay tuned for communications about the next community vote for 2015 At-Large seats).

We couldn’t be more thrilled about Mike and Rob joining the board. Because they both have extensive experience as end-users of Drupal, we believe they will provide valuable input from a perspective that currently isn’t fully realized on the board.

Happy Global Accessibility Awareness Day

Announcing newest Drupal.org Software Working Group members

Last summer, we created three Drupal.org working groups: one for content, one for software, and one for infrastructure. Since then, Working Group members have put countless hours of time and energy into making Drupal.org the best it can be! Now that we’re winding to the end of our first year with the working groups, we’d like to announce small changes in membership. We have two new members joining the Drupal.org Software Working Group!
