On 28 June, 2017, the Drupal Association Board held the second of four annual public meetings. It was a full meeting where staff provided operational updates and gained some strategic direction from board members on how to proceed in various areas. Some highlights included:
Summary of DrupalCon Baltimore’s performance and impact.
Progress on securing future DrupalCon locations.
An update on the Drupal.org infrastructure RFP that was recently awarded to Tag1.
Whitney Hess also attended the board meeting to give an update on the Community Discussion work and invited the community to attend her webinar that shared her findings and next steps. You can learn more and watch the recorded webinar here.
Also, Jamie Nau, our “virtual CFO” from Summit CPA attended the meeting to review April 2017 financial statements, which showed that DrupalCon Baltimore exceeded expectations, positioning the Drupal Association for a healthier year, financially. This is encouraging news as we work through our financial turnaround, which started a year ago.
In an effort to be more transparent about board activities, the board chose to use this public forum to vote to approve the January through April 2017 financial statements. April 2017 financial statements showed that April was a successful month primarily due to DrupalCon Baltimore's strong financial performance.
You can find the meeting minutes and board materials here.
We were pleased to have community members attend and invite you to attend our next board meeting on 27 September, 2017 at noon CEST. It is located in the DrupalCon Vienna convention center and can also be attended via zoom.
