Hi community members,

Two blog posts this week highlight important announcements for our community:

  1. RFCs and lessons learned [1] describes how we are incorporating feedback from our recent Requests for Comment, and describes the context with which decision making regarding our organizational merger is proceeding.

  2. Call for nominations to joint Board [2] invites you to nominate yourself for election to the Board of Directors for the merged Carpentries organization, which will take office Jan 1 2018.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions or concerns about either of the above announcements.
