From Erin Tripp <email@example.com >, Business Development Manager
The DuraSpace community is sharing their migration and upgrade stories. Now let's hear from you!
From Michael Conlon, VIVO Project Director
Beginning today, we invite anyone in the community, DuraSpace members or non-members, to nominate an individual who you believe would be a good representative for the community. All nominees must be from DuraSpace member organizations (see full list here) and Board-Member-at-Large candidates should be at the senior management level at their organizations, having fiscal and staffing responsibility. And of course, they will, in your judgment, be able to bring the commitment, creativity, and dedication that the role calls for.
DuraSpace is an international community dedicated to providing a welcoming, inclusive and positive experience for all members of our community. This includes formal gatherings, social settings, and online activities including mailing lists, wikis, web sites, IRC channels, Slack, and/or private correspondence. Accordingly, all community members are expected to show respect and courtesy to other attendees throughout events and online as well as in-person interactions associated with Duraspace.
