Drupal Association At Large Director Elections 2015

During DrupalCamp London I met with Adam Hill and Michael Schmid who are both nominees in the forthcoming Drupal Association At-Large Board Elections.

They took time out to explain to me why it is crucial we all get involved and vote between 9-20 March.

The At Large Members serve a vital role in providing representation of the community in the Drupal Association Board. As such it is important we all take time to review the candidates and come 9th March vote for our preferred nominee. To help you decide it is worth watching videos of interviews with all the candidates, available on The Drupal Association website.

Let's All Build a Hat Rack

There's no denying volunteers are the beating heart of open source projects. Without the countless hours invested by thousands of dedicated people projects like Drupal would not have achieved such great strides forward.

In a recent article I spoke about the unsung heroes of Drupal and how I felt they should be celebrated better. This week I read an article "A Place to Hang Your Hat" by @lhawthorn and it really resonated. I encourage you to take a look.

If someone has volunteered to help your project, take the time to write a 2-3 sentence summary of what they did to help.

If we all do as Leslie suggests (Tweet a thank you using #LABHR, write a linkedIn recommendation, send the individual an email) what a wave of positivity would sweep through the (Drupal) community.

So I've started by writing a recommendation for Baris Wanschers on LinkedIn. What will you do? Who will you thank?
