Volunteers

The activity of the chapter wouldn’t be possible without our dedicated team of volunteers working to make sure that the website runs smoothly, that content gets created, that videos get edited and that meetings run well among much much else. We want to take a moment to thank everyone who helps us to create such an amazing community.

Special Thanks to:
