Welcome to DrupalWelcome to Drupal
First impressions: Watch overviews and tutorials for those new to the community.

Drupal is a phenomenal open source software project with an amazing community. We're experiencing non-stop growth, wider adoption in the non-profit, government, and enterprise WCMS space. We have bigger and better DrupalCons. But what role does the Drupal Association play in all of this? As it turns out, it's a pretty big role. This session will provide a comprehensive overview of what the Drupal Association is, and does, who is behind it all, and where we're going.

You will meet some of the key members and hear what they've been doing to further the success of the Drupal project. You'll hear, in our own words, some of the things we've done right, and where we've fallen short.

We will discuss our plans for the future, including the move towards a more professional structure and the growth of our paid staff.

You'll also be given the chance to ask important questions and challenge us, the stewards of the Drupal project.
