Portland WordPress User Group transitions leadership
Now, now. Don’t worry. There’s nothing scandalous happening.
But there are only so many hours in the day.
Aaron Hockley, the founder of the Portland WordPress User Group, has decided to focus on some other major projects. As such, he is handing off responsibility for the management of the pdxwp group:
Recently I’ve found my time and energies spread thin amongst various projects. In order to focus on a smaller set of projects (and let the remaining projects thrive with the attention they deserve), I’m stepping back from a few things. I’m pleased to announce that Kelly Guimont is assuming the leadership role for our group. Kelly assisted with WordCamp Portland and I look forward to seeing her develop pdxwp further. I’ve turned over information on all pending pdxwp issues to Kelly, please contact her with any questions.
Aaron will continue to lead WordCamp Portland, the second installment of which is slated for fall 2009.
