Take the Survey on the Community Governance Summit

Drupal Official News - Tue, 07/18/2017 - 18:58

I recently shared the community needs and potential strategies for evolving community governance, which resulted from the Community Discussions we held in person and online throughout April and May. You can find the webinar recording and written transcript, as well as the meeting minutes from all Community Discussions, at https://www.drupal.org/community/discussions.

Many community members who participated in these discussions agreed that the next step to take in this process is to hold a Community Governance Summit. However, we are not yet clear on where and when this event should take place, who should participate, and several other important details. I worked with community members to develop this survey so we can answer those questions.

Please take 5 minutes to take this community survey and tell us your thoughts about the Community Governance Summit. This survey will remain open until 11:59pm EDT on July 28, 2017. We will analyze the findings and report back on what we learned in a follow-up blog post by Friday, August 4.

Thank you for your time and participation.

Drupal Association Board Meeting Summary - 28 June, 2017

Drupal Official News - Sun, 07/16/2017 - 00:39

On 28 June, 2017, the Drupal Association Board held the second of four annual public meetings. It was a full meeting where staff provided operational updates and gained some strategic direction from board members on how to proceed in various areas. Some highlights included:

  • Summary of DrupalCon Baltimore’s performance and impact.

  • Progress on securing future DrupalCon locations.

  • Discussion on how to unblock community outreach efforts by making appropriate changes to the Drupal.org privacy policy

  • An update on the Drupal.org infrastructure RFP that was recently awarded to Tag1.

Whitney Hess also attended the board meeting to give an update on the Community Discussion work and invited the community to attend her webinar that shared her findings and next steps. You can learn more and watch the recorded webinar here.

Also, Jamie Nau, our “virtual CFO” from Summit CPA attended the meeting to review April 2017 financial statements, which showed that DrupalCon Baltimore exceeded expectations, positioning the Drupal Association for a healthier year, financially. This is encouraging news as we work through our financial turnaround, which started a year ago.

In an effort to be more transparent about board activities, the board chose to use this public forum to vote to approve the January through April 2017 financial statements. April 2017 financial statements showed that April was a successful month primarily due to DrupalCon Baltimore's strong financial performance. 

You can find the meeting minutes and board materials here

We were pleased to have community members attend and invite you to attend our next board meeting on 27 September, 2017 at noon CEST. It is located in the DrupalCon Vienna convention center and can also be attended via zoom.  

How you can help during our membership campaign

Drupal Official News - Wed, 07/12/2017 - 02:17

Join in the fun during the Drupal Association membership campaign happening now through August 4. We're providing personalized certificates of membership to individual and organization members who join or renew during the campaign and we need your help spreading the word.

The campaign has two goals: help us deliver 500 certificates and raise $18,250 during July 10-August 4. By sharing and encouraging Drupal users and people in the community to join us, you'll help us meet these goals. If we are told by 5 or more members that you referred them to us during this campaign, we'll thank you on social media.

Grab words and graphics from this post and share away. If you are a member who would like your own certificate let us know and we'll send one your way. Post your selfie or hang your certificate on the wall. Thanks for sharing!
