We are pleased to tell you that the Drupal Association’s Board of Directors announced today that it has appointed Holly Ross as the new Executive Director to lead the Association into it’s next phase of growth. Holly will assume her role starting February 1, 2013.
Holly joins the DA after 10 years at NTEN, the Nonprofit Technology Network, which works to help nonprofits use technology to create the change they want to see in the world. NTEN has a similar structure to the DA with a strong community of technologies, which she helped grow from just a handful of individuals to over 60,000 people. NTEN also holds an annual conference, and pulls together resources to support the technology needs of nonprofits around the country.
Holly shared her excitement with the Drupal Association Board of Directors about her new role, saying, “I am thrilled to be making this move, which allows me to capitalize on my experience building community and embrace the added challenge of helping this international community collaborate on the Drupal project. I can’t wait to get started and be a part of a group of colleagues who share the values and passion for technology that I do.”
NTEN has also been using Drupal for the last six years, so she is no stranger to our community. We’re excited to bring her experience, talents, and skills to the DA to help us accelerate our growth and the support of the Drupal community as a whole.
All of us at the DA appreciate the support you have provided during our first phase of growth and look forward to continuing to collaborate with you on the next phase of the Association. Holly is looking forward to connecting with our community, so please feel free to reach out to her with your feedback and ideas at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are very excited about the opportunities and changes that are coming!
