Each year the EPO (http://www.enlightenedperl.org) must elect a new director, or have an existing director re-elected (the EPO’s year runs from 6th March). This year Marcus Ramberg decided to resign and not seek re-election due to many other commitments.

In accordance with the organisations’ rules we held an election process and it is my pleasure to announce that Chris Prather, head of Orlando.pm, organiser of Perl Oasis and organiser of YAPC::NA::2011 joins us as our new director.

If you see Chris congratulate him on his new appointment and we on the board welcome him into our fold and give him the keys to the secret master plan of conquest and destruction…I mean to the pictures of cuddly crocodiles.
