Meet 2024 Interim Co-Rep: Jamie Madden

Training Team co-reps @bsanevans @lada7042 and I are very excited to welcome Jamie Madden as interim Training Team co-representative (co-rep).

A few months ago we discussed the idea of an interim lead with the team, and the idea was largely accepted. An interim co-rep is an active Training Team member who fits our documented criteria, and is able to step in to help lead the team when another co-rep is on a leave for longer than 1 month.

Our fellow team repTeam Rep A Team Rep is a person who represents the Make WordPress team to the rest of the project, make sure issues are raised and addressed as needed, and coordinates cross-team efforts. @bsanevans will be away on a three month sabbatical on June 24th, and we will begin onboarding Jamie to the co-representative team starting from this week (June 3rd). He will be staying on as an interim co-rep until the end of the year.

Thank you again Jamie for accepting the call for this role! We look forward to working more closely with you in this capacity.
