Laura Ellen Gordon - USA
I began volunteering for the project in 2006, where I started coordinating and putting together all of the Joomla User Group meetings in NYC. I coordinated our first Joomla Day in NYC in 2009, then continued assisting with Joomla days in 2011 and 2012 in NYC to a tremendous number of attendees from all over the world.Starting in 2010, I started running an annual Joomla Camp event, which I continue to run annually till this day. I built the 'suggested' setup for other groups to also run Joomla Camps, which I think is the best way to go to get the community together at a low cost, and really assist the attendees and mentors.You can find my description and details for joomla camp here:Joomla Camp Details. Currently, I coordinate the Joomla Users Group in NJ. I have been managing this group since 2013. We meet every other month. More recently we have been able to have our meetings at Rutgers, The State University of NJ. We have incorporated VIRTUAL meetings, so most of our meetings have more attendees from outside of NJ. I have brought in speakers from all over to get to know our group, and our users. I have presented at a few Joomla Days in Boston / New England presenting on topics such as basic joomla, 'how to make your joomla site dance', and other topics to make your joomla site more dynamic. I consider myself a true Joomla Evangelist
