Call for Joomla User Group Team members

Written by Ruth Cheesley

Joomla! User Groups (JUGs) beat at the heart of the Joomla! project, providing a regular opportunity for members of the community to come together, share their knowledge, learn, and meet others from their local area.  There are Joomla! User Groups around the world, all of which are run by volunteers.  A team of volunteers also makes up the Joomla! User Group Team, who are responsible for approving JUG applications, supporting new User Groups during the application process, in the early days when the JUG is getting started and dealing with any issues which may arise in relation to Joomla! User Groups.

The team also liaise closely with other parts of the Joomla! project including the Trademark Team, and with the Community Leadership Team, to ensure that all registered User Groups are adhering to the terms and conditions associated with registration.  The Joomla! User Group Team is currently open for nominations to join this evolving, exciting and dynamic team - we welcome applications from anywhere in the world, and we prefer applications from community members who are involved with a Joomla! User Group in their locality.
