Completely agreed on how important SIG Contributor Strategy is to the CNCF mission. And thank you, Gerred, for all your hard work getting it this far!

Concur +1 nb. I’m so excited for the CNCF‘s success with Stephen’s leadership. SIG Contributor Strategy, as I’ve said, is the most important SIG in the CNCF to help the TOC’s continued operations.
FWIW I think Stephen would make an awesome SIG Contributor Strategy Chair.

Gerred has sent a step-down notice
on the SIG Contributor Strategy list and recommended me to replace him as SIG Contributor Strategy Chair.
Let me know if there's anything else that needs to be done on the SIG Contributor Strategy side!
Gerred and Carolyn,
I'm immensely honored and would love to step up as a SIG Chair for Contributor Strategy!
We have countless vibrant communities within the CNCF landscape and I'm hard-pressed to think of better goals than fostering deeper collaboration between maintainers, helping to establish enduring guidelines for community maintenance, and defraying burden from our TOC members.
While I know quite a few of you, here are some quick highlights for those who don't spend time in the Kubernetes Community:
- SIG Release Chair, Release Manager, Release Engineering subproject owner
- Enhancements (KEPs) subproject owner
- Cluster API Azure core maintainer
- GitHub Administration subproject member, New Membership Coordinator
- SIG PM Chair
- SIG Azure Chair
For the CNCF:
- KubeCon Chair
- SIG Contributor Strategy member
- Dex maintainer
Looking forward to working with you all more closely!
My vote is for Stephan. He has been actively involved since the beginning and would make a great chair.
I am excited and onboard with the mission and hard work SIG Contributor Strategy has done, and am thankful for the opportunities to work with my co-chairs on founding this SIG.
I'm stepping down as a co-chair of SIG Contributor Strategy. In short - everything is fine.
I work on a bunch of different angles within the CNCF - KUDO is now a sandbox project, I chair the Operator Working Group, and work to be active in many different areas. I'm not going away.
My capacity for serving SIG Contributor Strategy is limited by these other things that demand more full time attention. I think it's important right now that I serve and help SIG Contributor Strategy succeed in its mission, not be a blocker for our co-chairs,
WG leads, and everyone who cares about the success of CNCF projects. I will be active in an emeritus and supportive position, and would love to return to a chair role when I have the availability to do so as I think this is one of the most important SIGs serving
the CNCF and CNCF TOC.
This is a good time to figure out and test successor-ship in this role, and while many could fulfill this role, two stand out to me as people who I'd recommend our existing chairs to succeed me in this role:
* Carolyn van Slyck
* Stephen Augustus
I think these two need no introduction (or if they feel compelled, can do it for themselves). I think they are as aligned and focused on the success of SIG Contributor Strategy as I am. No matter what, I look forward to SIG Contributor Strategy supporting the
CNCF and TOC in building a healthy ecosystem of projects.
Thank you all so much! I'll be here and doing work and helping our collective goals. :)
