Our team reps come from across the globe. Currently they span a number of different timezones and are based in six different countries: India, The Netherlands, Russia, Pakistan, UK, USA.

They participate in and are supported by members of the projects and actions groups. Thanks to Larissa Murillo (@lmurillo), Christopher Churchill (@vimes1984 who with Mark also leads our pilots on GitHub) and Mark Smallman (marks99), Nalini Thakor (@nalininonstopnewsuk with a focus on access and mentoring) who also help with taking the work in these groups forward, and with the Team Reps supporting the Marketing Team as a whole. We seek to encourage members to join task action groups, mentoring support and generally get involved, and putting themselves forward to become part of the projects and actions groups on a regular or specific basis.

We recognize that some of our regular contributors are away due to the effect of the pandemic. We look forward to their return and thank them for their contribution to date. We also thank previous team reps who have given dedication to help build the team since its inception. More on the credits page.
