Drupal is an open-source content management system (CMS) written in PHP/MySQL. The local Drupal Atlanta group has two meetings per month. A hands-on, workshop-like meeting takes place at Manuel's Tavern intown. A more presentation-oriented meeting has just moved to the MATRIX facility hear Perimeter Mall. Probably the best way to get with them is through their MeetUp Group. If you miss a meeting, please don't cry blue tears, though.
ADUG Elections and an Intro to GaTech
The Atlanta Drupal User's Group
The Board of Directors for ADUG is an election-based body that manages the overall operations of the group, from programming to finances. They have also been in charge, most recently, of planning and executing DCA. The elections for the Board are done annually, as stated in the by-laws. As such, we are holding the elections for the 2015 Board. All members of the meetup group are eligible, and if you need more information on the duties and responsibilities of the Board, please see the by-laws, located on the Files page. Up-to 9 members can be on the board.
This election will be followed by an introduction to the GaTech facility, talking about how they will be supporting ADUG for the next year.
This will be our new facility for 2015, so we added some direction documents to help out. Here is the link to the PDF: CLICK HERE.
If you are interested in being a member of the Board of Directors, please comment below with a brief (3-4 sentence) bio of yourself. We will allow anyone interested to have a 2 minute Q&A prior to the voting. All members of the group are welcome to vote as well, but have to be PRESENT at the meeting. All bio's that are listed in the comments will be added to the meeting description below. If you have any questions on this process, please email email@example.com and one of the current Board members will be happy to assist.
- Mal Richards, President
- Kaleem Clarkson, VP
- Taylor Wright, Treasurer
- Barb Prebble, Secretary
- Zach Sines, Marketing
All incumbents are running for re-election.
Here are the details of the people in consideration at this time (there could be more in the comments, so please see below, as well as others who show up in January):
"I'm a long-time Drupal enthusiast who loves to share our awesome community and software. I'd love to be a non-officer on the Board of Directors, with a primary focus of helping with DrupalCamp Atlanta."
"I am presently employed as the Drupal subject-matter expert for the College of Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology, where I also serve as a member of the Leadership Committee for the Georgia Tech Drupal Users Group. During my free time, I am either exploring Atlanta (and all its neighborhoods and eccentricities) or working towards finishing my Ph.D. in Instructional Technology from Georgia State University. My preference would be to serve in a communication- or socially-focused position in ADUG as an outlet for my love of community-building, grammatical finesse, and Drupal."
Zach Sines (re-election):
"I have been involved with ADUG for years now, and a board of director member for the past 10 or so months. I accomplished a few things while there, specifically in regards to DCA, the by-laws, the Meetup site, and ADUG operations in regards to facilities, communications, socials, and finances. Specifically with DCA, I helped raise $15,000 in sponsorship funds, helped coordinate the entire event, worked countless hours creating materials and content, ran ad/email campaigns, and assisted with the overall operations of the camp. I have also be the Marketing Chair for the past 12 months. I would like to continue helping the community by being on the board, specifically in the leadership tier of the group."
