The Drupal Community Working Group is happy to announce the addition of Alex Burrows (aburrows). Based in Surrey, United Kingdom, Alex has been contributing to the Drupal project and community for more than a decade. He is one of the lead organizers of Drupalcamp London, and a frequent speaker at other Drupal events. Alex also serves as a volunteer police constable in his local community.

The CWG would also like to announce that both Josef Dabernig (dasjo) and Manjit Singh (Manjit.Singh) have agreed to serve as Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) to the CWG. SMEs are not full members of the group, but can be called upon on an as-needed basis for issues that might require specific knowledge or expertise. SMEs are subject to the same Code of Ethics as full members of the CWG.

Adam Hill and Emma Karayannis are also officially stepping down as members of the CWG. We would like to thank both Adam and Emma for their invaluable contributions to the group and for their ongoing contributions to the Drupal community.

The CWG continues to seek new members and SMEs as it seeks to increase the diversity of its membership. It is our hope that by expanding our membership, the CWG will be able to better serve the community in a more proactive manner. If you think you or someone you know might be a good fit for the CWG and are interested in learning more, please reach out to us via email at drupal-cwg@drupal.org.

In other news, the CWG recently proposed a set of changes to its charter to address feedback and concerns raised by the community over the last year and a half. We are accepting feedback from the community through November 23 before finalizing the proposal.

The CWG is responsible for promoting and upholding the Drupal Code of Conduct and maintaining a friendly and welcoming community for the Drupal project. To learn more about the group and what we’ve been up to over the last year, check out our recently-published annual report.
