  • Introducing the Transition Team

    The Structure Team is happy to announce the results of the elections for the Transition Team. In total 24 Leadership Members (of 27) elected 6 community members for the transition team. We like to introduce them in a random order:

    tj baker

    TJ Baker (USA)

    TJ is located in Visalia, California (USA) and has a long history of working collaboratively in the Joomla Project. He is known as a great team player, making sure all voices are heard, and collaborative decisions are made. According to TJ’s own words he owes a great debt to the many volunteers, past and present, who have made Joomla what it is today. Serving on this team would be a small gesture to repay part of that debt.

    ian macmillan

    Ian MacMillan (UK)

    Ian is located in London (UK) and has been a change management specialist for decades. He has dealt with some very difficult transitions in the past and has always managed to get even the most dissolute teams to find cohesion and a clear path to move forward on. He has no history as a Joomla community member but understands the importance of making this evolutionary change. Offering his experience of delivering difficult change, for which being outside of the community, and thus not part of the natural tensions of this significant change, is an additional benefit.

    ken crowder

    Ken Crowder (USA)

    Ken is located in Omaha (USA) and has been a long standing contributing member of the Joomla! Community. He is a moderator on the Joomla forum since 2006 and has held various positions including time on the Leadership team. He likes to think of himself as a level headed person with the ability to look at things objectively and not emotionally. According to him it is crucial that the transition team be made up of individuals that are focused on doing what is best for the project and not made up of individuals that make decisions based on friends or favors.

    helvecio

    Helvecio da Silva (Brazil)

    Helvecio is located in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) and is known for his contributions as an illustrator and translator. His goal is to promote Joomla within less privileged communities in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. According to him the project showed him new horizons in his career and improved the way he acts within different communities he is part of. His motivation comes from a quote of Ghandi:“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” Being part of the Transition Team is one more step into being this change.

    stefania gaianigo

    Stefania Gaianigo (Italy)

    Stefania is located in Garda (Italy) and gave her contributions translating the CMS and the documentation by coordinating the Italian Joomla Translation Team since the birth of Joomla. Currently she is a member of the Joomla Translation Coordination Team and an administrator of Joomla.it, where she daily gives voluntary support to the users of the italian community.

    jon neubauer

    Jon Neubauer (USA)

    Jon is located in Charlotte, North Carolina (USA) and has been involved in various teams within the Joomla Community over the years. Currently he is the lead organizer of the Joomla World Conference. He firmly believes that the opportunities offered to us by this transition period is one of the few times where we have the chance to "make or break" Joomla. He is motivated to make sure that, in this new structure we are able to keep the open, nimble, "all together" spirit that has defined most of Joomla's history and work together towards another decade of growth.

    The Transition Team will be completed by representatives of each leadership team:

    • Ryan Ozimek (the board)
    • George Wilson (PLT)
    • Guillermo Bravo (CLT)

    We would like to thank all the people that participated in the elections as well as Dianne Henning and Jacques Rentzke who verified all votes casted and made sure the procedure was followed.

    Timeline:

    • Between the 20th of September and the 1st of October the Transition Team has an initial handover meeting with the Structure team
    • On the 1st of October the new Transition Team will officially take over from the Structure Team and implement the new structure.

  • Call for Transition Team Nominations - July 2015

    NOMINATIONS DEADLINE EXTENSION: Transition Team nominations will remain open until July 31.

    ------------------

    Since the vote to adopt the New Structure & Methodology proposal by Joomla leadership in May, the final task of the Structure Team is to organize the nominations to the Transition Team, which will implement the new governance and conduct elections to form the new structure for the Joomla project.

    The Transition Team will consist of 9 members, to include 3 leadership liaisons (one from each leadership team, chosen by that team), and 6 people to be elected from the community and/or leadership. Nomination or self-nominations is open to anyone from the current Leadership and the community at large.

    Voting on the candidates will be done by the entire leadership on a private ballot form.

    Candidates with experience specifically in the area of organizational and governance transitioning are encouraged to apply. The work of the Transition Team is expected to last several months, and will require a significant time commitment.

    If you or someone you know is qualified and motivated to serve on the Transition Team, please fill out the nomination form and tell us more about your interest, skills, and experience.

    In addition, we are also seeking submissions of names of community members to assist the Secretary of the Board to count the votes at the end of the Transition Team election process. Two community members will be chosen from these submissions. If you, or someone you know is interested, a separate form is available for this below.

    Some of the criteria that will be used when evaluating Transition Team nominations include:

    • Community: the nominee should have a strong track-record of successfully collaborating with, enabling others and earning the respect of the Joomla! community.
    • Character: the nominee should have a history of acting honestly, fairly and openly in previous and current roles held, have demonstrated a general conduct of a professional and considerate nature on Joomla.org as well as other sites and media channels, and be willing to read and agree to abide by the Joomla Code of Conduct.
    • Experience and Expertise: in particular candidates are sought who have a good understanding of management systems and experience in transitioning.
    • Availability: because of the importance and the amount of work this team needs to do, we really want to stress that candidates need to have the time to take on this responsibility. Like most Joomla teams, meetings will take place on week days, and the time of day of the meetings will depend on the time zone composition of the team. The amount of work from week to week may vary, but in general, candidates should be able to devote 4 hours to the work of the team. Interviews of candidates will take place between July 25 - August 2.

    Candidates from any country are welcome to apply to either of these openings.

    The nomination period will close on July 31, 2015. The target date to announce the results of the election process is August 31, 2015.
