Take the Survey on the Community Governance Summit

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.

Drupal Association and Project Lead Statement Regarding Larry Garfield

This blog includes two statements. One from Dries Buytaert, as Drupal Project Lead, and another from Megan Sanicki, as the Executive Director of the Drupal Association and the Drupal Association Board.

We recognize that events and conversations earlier this year surfaced many concerns and needs within the community. One in particular is related to Larry Garfield’s role within Drupal. After several conversations with Larry, and careful consideration, we can now provide an update to this situation, our decisions, and Larry’s role moving forward.

Welcome to Piyush, and thanks to Srijan.

We are excited to share the news that we have a new addition to the Drupal Association team - thanks to Srijan.

Last year, we announced the reduction of our team size in order to make the Drupal Association more sustainable. In response, Srijan, a long time Drupal Association Supporter, hired Piyush Jain to work on marketing initiatives and has donated 100% of his time to the Drupal Association.

It’s an incredibly generous contribution and we are extremely grateful for Srijan’s support.

DrupalCon Vienna t-shirts are back! - but there’s a catch.

Remember how we are making changes to DrupalCon Europe? These were hard decisions and some things we love we found just weren’t financially viable. Like free t-shirts. But one thing we heard a lot was “please don’t take away the t-shirts!”  

We heard you. And while it doesn’t make financial sense to give free t-shirts to all attendees, we still want to be able to continue to offer them. So we’ve come up with a plan.
