Additional support has arrived. 

No objections were received from association members regarding the nomination. Thus, the nominees are officially accepted. 

After a short break, we're back with exciting news!  A few weeks ago, we launched the Volunteer Leadership initiative. The goal of this initiative is to encourage community members to take on responsibilities within the django CMS project. These responsibilities go beyond normal community participation.

We believe that now is the right time to take this step. Over the past year and a half, we have done some solid groundwork to lay the foundation for the revitalization of django CMS: We've formed a non-profit, recruited many members, and raised a decent amount of funds. Thanks to this tailwind, we believe that now is the perfect time to harness the power of the community, expand the team with bright and dedicated minds, and together shape the future of django CMS with more vigor.

And what can we say? Thanks to this great community, we received applications in no time and put together a team 🎉.
