Be an ambassador!

Drupal News - Tue, 21/01/2020 - 19:43

Drupal is often spoken about as far more than an open source project, because our global community is vibrant and passionate; a model for other projects to learn from and emulate. There are many ways to be a Drupal ambassador: by mentoring others, by helping people answer why they should use Drupal, and why they should contribute. In addition, I have a few ideas on ways you could be an ambassador for Drupal by sharing about yourself with the global community. By participating, you help put a story behind the people of Drupal, and you show the broader community why the Drupal Association needs support. We'd love to have you involved!

Give a testimonial


".... because of it's wonderful community which has such inspiring contributors spread around the world. Being a member fills me with immense positive energy :)" — Surabhi Gokte (surabhi-gokte)

Get inspiration from the testimonials and share your own.

Be featured on Drupal.org

We're running the banner ad on Drupal.org - visible only to users who don't have an active membership. You may see these banners throughout the year (usually for a week-long run) if you visit without being logged in. To participate, email me or chat on Slack (lizzjoy). 

We rely on Drupal. Our team feels responsible to contribute back to the project and participate in its growth. - Baddy Breidert, Drupal Association Board and Co-Founder of 1xINTERNET.

Thanks to DrupalCon for a boost in motivation. I joined the Drupal Association because being a member in the first place fosters contribution in other areas of the community, too. - Christian Schnabl, Founder & Developer, 42robots.

MemberMondays

Monica S. Flores is organizing DrupalCamp Hawaii 2020 and is learning and sharing more ways to foster inclusion in technology with @drupaldiversity. She's been a pianist since childhood, and is interested in learning how to do music composition. Say hi to her at DrupalCon! #MemberMondays
From this month's #MemberMondays.

This month, we've launched social posts about a different member each week. We're calling it #MemberMondays. You can share about yourself in this questionnaire.

I hope you participate— it would be wonderful to share about you with the global community. If you are interested, but feel you don’t have time or are hesitating, let us know.
