New TPF Conferences Chair

1 Comment

I'm happy to announce that Heath Bair is our new Conferences Committee Chair. Heath was the organizer for YAPC::NA in Columbus in 2010 and he has remained passionate about YAPCs ever since. I'm looking forward to him bringing that passion to one of the most active committees in TPF. Please join me in congratulating Heath on his new role!

Josh McAdams is stepping down as conferences chair, so TPF is now accepting self-nominations for this role. This is a great opportunity to help the Perl community and is one of the key roles that can have a huge impact without writing code. You can take a look at the expectations for the role on the conference roles page. If you're interested, answer the questions at the bottom of the page and send it to me at cbrandt at perlfoundation dot org.

TPF committees typically select their chairs, so I'll forward all submissions on to the conferences committee for discussion and selection. The deadline for submissions is Wednesday, August 15, so get started!

Thanks to Josh for all of his work!
