Learn more about Brian
“Brian is a staunch advocate for Joomla and governance. His years of experience with Joomla as well as other organizations would be invaluable to the project and provide momentum on issues which strongly need to be addressed: Code of Conduct, Ombudsman, Board of Advisors, and much. He follows through on his work and equally holds others accountable.”
Statement from the nominee:
“I am not a developer, I am not a marketeer, I am not a blogger, I am not a public speaker, I am not an event organiser, I am not a CEO. I am much more than the things than I am not. I am all of these and none of these.
The role of Vice President is completely undefined – so before voting please consider what it is Joomla needs from a VP and if your choice is the best person for that.
I am in my 50th year and for 35 of those I have been involved in community and volunteer organisations serving on many governing boards.
Our structure defines that Board of OSM exist to be leaders and coordinators. The Board are “our” representatives so it saddens me when I see so many motions where there are more board members who abstained than those who voted. As leaders it is the responsibility and duty of all board members to express their views and those of their members.
Our “new” structure also mandates that the board form a CoC, Communities Department, Ombudsman and Advisory Board. All hard tasks but not achieved so far – we must address this urgently.
As a board of leaders and coordinators it is not the board’s role to do everything. If the board is doing all the work then the structure isn’t working. We are a community of volunteers from across the world and we should be working to increase contributions and not doing everything ourselves. That’s not healthy and it’s not sustainable.
Finally as we work towards the release of Joomla 4 we need to have advocates who are both knowledgeable and presentable if we are to succeed in spreading the Joomla love. Just as not everyone can be a developer or a designer being a public face also requires special skills.
Joomla has a great future ahead, but only if we all stand up and contribute. Standing on the sidelines and throwing popcorn or waiting for others to stand up and do something will never achieve anything. We can and should be doing much more in all areas of Joomla to increase engagement and contribution. We should and must look at removing barriers to entry and make it even easier for those that wish to contribute.”
