Event Organizers: Event Organizer Working Group 2023 Election Results

As per our charter, the EOWG opened elections in December for the one expiring seat.

Nominations were open for just over a month and we were extremely excited to have two highly-qualified nominees:

  • Mike Miles (mikemiles86) - New England Drupal Camp organizer and Boston Drupal Meetup group lead
  • Mike Richardson (richo_au) - DrupalSouth Treasurer and DrupalAsia Steering Committee chair

Nominations were closed after a month (with an extension due to the holidays) and voting took place from January 15-19. We conducted voting via Google Form, and ballots were open to anyone with a Drupal user ID. Everyone who voted was given issue credit for contributing to the decision.

With 44 votes submitted, Mike Richardson won with 66% of the votes.

Mike Richardson was informed of the result and accepted the position for a two-year term on the Board.

After internal discussion, the existing board also agreed to offer Mike Miles a non-voting position on our Advisory Committee.

We're excited to begin work with our new members - particularly in expanding the conversation outside of North America.

The Board would also like to extend our deepest thanks to Matthew Saunders for serving two terms with us. Matthew has been an invaluable source of guidance from our formation to ongoing issues surrounding organizational structures and processes. We appreciate his time so far, and his continued dedication as an advisor.
