After serving as chair of the board for the R Consortium and being involved in multiple R Consortium committees both on the technical and community development sides, as well as participating directly in R-focused events, webinars, and countless other R activities, Joseph Rickert is stepping away from the position. The board will be conducting elections to decide the next chair.
Joseph has been with the R Consortium since it was first conceived in 2014. His initial role was as Community Officer. In 2018, he began to also serve as Secretary. In 2019, he was elected chair of the board.
Thank you for your tireless interest in promoting R and supporting developers and user groups around the world who are working to improve the R programming language.
Thank you, Joseph!
