The Atlassian Community: for you, by you. As we dream up ways to enhance your experiences here, we rely heavily on the input of those who are most engaged. Enter: the Community Advisory Board.
If this is the first time you're hearing of it, don't fret. This group has been working mostly behind the scenes for the past year to advise, support and advocate for the online community at large. They represent diverse skills and expertise, and are invested in the health of the community and its future. During our monthly meetings, they tackle myriad tasks, ranging from reporting usability issues to assessing the impact of proposed programs and everything in between.
The first cohort was hand-selected by our team, and includes names you've probably seen a lot of in your community travels: @Nic Brough, @Susan Hauth [Jira Queen], Daniel Wester and David Garcia. These four have helped shape a space that thousands of people use every day to ask questions, trade stories and connect with others.
Members of the CAB are often called upon to validate concepts for design changes to the online community — in the future, our goal is to make more informed decisions by involving the Board even earlier in the process. Below are some examples of recent projects the Board has weighed in on:
Starting in September 2018, we'll be adding two new seats to the Board, with the intent of incorporating additional viewpoints into our discussions. For additional details, please check out the CAB charter, and if you're interested in serving on the Board in the future, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
