We’re excited to announce Belinda Weaver has accepted our offer to become the Community Development Lead. Belinda will join the Carpentries staff later this month, please give her a warm and enthusiastic community welcome!
Many of you may already know of Belinda from her work all over the community as a Software Carpentry Steering Committee Member, the Mentorship Subcommittee, the Trainers Subcommittee and a champion and leader of Library Carpentry. As part of our bylaws Belinda will be stepping down from the Software Carpentry Steering Committee on Friday June 16th and the Committee will finish the 2017 term with a membership of 6. For those of you who don’t know her yet, look for her introductory blog post later today. In short, Belinda is a very active community member and a delight to work with, we’re incredibly excited to have her contributing to our community full-time very soon!
We want to thank everyone who participated in the conversations about how we created this staff position, the global search process, and helped with community member interviews. It is always encouraging to see such a vibrant and thoughtful community as we think carefully about how to grow our impact around the world.
Belinda will officially begin in the new role on June 19th, 2017 and will be joining us as a full-time staff member. You can reach her at: email@example.com and follow her on Twitter at @cloudaus
