To the LA Drupal community:
LA Drupal has an entity called the LA Drupal Association, founded 4 years ago, which enables us to have a bank account for managing donations and camp/event expenses. I am the current treasurer.
It is time for me to move on, and for someone else from the community to step up and become the LA Drupal Treasurer.
If you are interested, please message me privately.
Please do not nominate other people. If you think someone is a good candidate, send them this post and let them contact me themselves.
After March 15, 2013, I will take all of the names of people who express interest, including those who have already approached me prior to this post, to the seven individuals listed as organizers on this group, plus the individuals who are officially part of the LA Drupal Association, and come up with a logical interview process. The treasurer has control of the money, so an interview process is important.
WHY I AM MOVING ON
I would like to focus my LA Drupal time where I am most passionate: training and drupalchix.
Taking on the role of treasurer was something I did because someone had to. It is not my talent or passion, and the community will benefit from a new person taking on that role and doing it justice.
The official founding members include Chris Charlton, Christefano and me. I took responsibility for the official role of treasurer and was, initially, the only person on the bank account. Soon after, we convinced John Romine to be a second person on the bank account as an added level of security, and as backup for me.
John Romine will continue to be on the bank account with the new treasurer, and provide support where needed. He is a fantastic colleague with a good mind for keeping things straight.
Thank you for trusting me as the treasurer for these past many years.
I look forward to helping a community member settle into this role in the near future.
