At our recent Board meeting Jim Brandt stepped down as President and Kurt DeMaagd stepped down as Treasurer.
We would like to thank Jim and Kurt for all their hard work. Jim became President in July 2009 after holding the post of Vice-President and will continue to serve as a Director on the Board. Kurt has been Treasurer of TPF since it was created in September 2000. This is a very long time for anyone to hold a voluntary role and we are incredibly gratefully to Kurt for his years of service in this role. Kurt will also remain on the Board.
Karen Pauley has been appointed President. Karen joined TPF as Steering Committee Chair in March 2008 and has held the position of Vice-President since July 2009.
We would like to welcome Dan Wright who has been appointed Treasurer. Dan comes to us with prior experience of being a Treasurer. He is an active member of the Perl community and a core member of the team that organized last year's YAPC::NA and the Pittsburgh Perl Workshops. We wish him every success in his new role.
