Who Am I?
My involvement with Plone
- My first introduction to the larger Plone community was at the Plone Deployment Workshop in Nov 2008. I organized and helped to host the event as one of my first major projects at Six Feet Up.
- I have managed the Plone Tune-Ups for the last year. This has allowed me to work with both new and established developers around the world and see first hand the importance of involving a diverse team in getting things done.
- I manage linked to from Plone.org which allows me to meet many people who are new to Plone and help them setup their test sites and show them the power of Plone.
- oined the Plone Marketing team in 2009. Since then, I've been responsible for coordinating providing informational materials, stickers, banners and brochures used at Plone events around the world. If you've seen something printed at a Plone event, there is a good chance I had something to do with it.
- rganized a World Plone Day event in 2010 to bring Plone and the open source initiative to Indianapolis.
- the Plone Foundation at the NTEN science fair in Washington DC in 2011.
- ttended the Plone Symposium East in 2011.
- orked the Plone Foundation booth at OSCON in Portland OR in 2011.
- I promote Plone any chance I get when meeting new people at networking events or on social media.
Why am I Interested?
What I can add to the Plone Foundation?
- I have been a member of the board of directors for 2 other groups, which has given me experience in working with people with many points of view.
- I have the ability to build consensus among teams
- will follow through on the tasks assigned to me.
- My number one goal would be doing what is possible to have the Foundation Board address the needs of its members, not the other way around.
