I need to get up to speed on fundraising, and non-profit revenue generation. This hasn't been something I've focussed on much before, and suspect I've generally succeeded in this space more through good luck than good management.
Three weeks ago I headed off to The Alexandra Show. It was an absolutely gorgeous day.
The Royal Melbourne Show just ain't what it was so I stopped going. But something in me missed the annual ritual, so I resolved to seek out and attend country shows instead.
I've got family in Alex, and grew up holidaying in Eildon, so bumping into an uncle is likely.
I've been organising the community elections for the Drupal Association. I put out a call for nominations, ran sessions to Meet the Candidates, and have just announced that....
Voting is open until 23:59UTC 7 Oct 2012 at https://association.drupal.org/vote2013
I've just got home after my 3rd overseas trip for the year. There's no place like home. But being out and about in the world is a huge amount of fun.
DrupalCon Munich was fantastic. It gave me a variety of experiences. I volunteered! I spoke! I attended meetings and schmoozed with cool people. I saw sessions!
The open source universe is wide and wonderful. It's filled with people passionate about solving problems together. Communities, projects, foundations and associations. The Drupal Association is one organisation in this universe. It's an important part of the Drupalverse. It recently turned 6 years old, and it's about to lose its first tooth.
