I am pleased to announce that Sawyer X has joined the Grants Committee.
Sawyer X is a frequent speaker at Perl conferences, an event organizer, and a dedicated CPAN contributor. He has been leading the Dancer web framework, organizing the Perl 5 Porters Summary emails, and is the recipient of this year's [White Camel Award](http://blogs.perl.org/users/brian_d_foy/2015/12/the-white-camel-awards-2015-edition.html) for outstanding non-technical contributions to the Perl community.
I regret to announce that Ben Tilly has stepped down after [ten years of service](http://news.perlfoundation.org/2006/01/new_grant_committee_members.html). We thank him for all the work and wish him all the best in his future endeavors.
