Announcing the Magento Association Task Force

Written by Guido Jansen in
October 2018

Last April at Imagine 2018, Magento announced the creation of a new global Magento Association, in partnership with the Meet Magento Association team and the global Magento community.

I am pleased to report that I am selected as member of the a key team of seven experienced Magento community members who will serve on a Task Force to help lead and establish the new Magento Association. Working with launch partner SmithBucklin, the Task Force will finalize the mission and vision for the new Association, collaborate and draft the Association bylaws and articles of incorporation, establish the strategic plan, as well as operating budget for 2019 and review nominations and interview the Magento Association Founding Board of Directors

View official announcement at magento.com and check out the selection document used to select all members.

Besides me the task force consists of Gabriel Guarino, Brian Lange, Susan Peterson, Alessandro Ronchi, Danny Verkade and Jenna Warren.

I'm very excited to be part of this great challenge and opportunity for the next chapter of the Magento community. If you have any questions or want to discuss  the Magento Association: we have a dedicated subforum.

In 2019 I will start a new Dutch podcast series about CRO (Conversion Rate Optimization). I want to get a better insight into the Dutch CRO field, get an idea of how everyone is working, what the struggles are and use this platform to exchange knowledge and experience. I'll be interviewing people working in/with CRO at agencies, tool vendors, merchants and other end-users.
