I know personally I'm planning to dedicate more time over the next cycle to TC activities. Something for me personally that came out of doing the visioning exercise last month was that it did give me an opportunity to reflect on what I viewed as priorities for the next 2 years. So I think for me, as I outlined in the candidacy email, the one initiative I'd really like to make a push for over the next 6 months is to start working on trying build up the systems in place to support both part time contributors and working on growing new leaders in the community. Realistically I don't think either is completely accomplishable in 6 months, but getting a good start and making initial progress is. Thanks, Matt Treinish
