We are pleased to announce that **Daisuke Maki** has joined the Grants Committee.
Daisuke was involved in the world's largest YAPC, YAPC::Asia Tokyo, since its inception in 2006, and has been the main organizer since 2009. He was also the main person behind creating and incorporating the Japan Perl Association. He received the White Camel Award in 2011.
We regret to announce that **Renée Bäcker**, one of the Grant Managers and known as a publisher of $foo Perl Magazine, stepped down. We thank him for all the work he delivered in the past three years and wish him all the best for his continued role in the Perl community.
