Well it finally happened. I became an official member of the Drupal Association. After all, it was only a matter of time and it seems like a great way to give back to the Drupal community.
Why do we need a Drupal Association?
Creating the Drupal Association opens up a number of opportunities for the project. For example, donations may be given to the project through a central entity, rather than to individual community members. By handling administrative tasks, such as event management, this frees resources within the community to focus on improving the Drupal project. It also provides the opportunity for individuals and businesses to be formally recognized as supporters of the project.

In addition to the above, it also comes with a few benefits. Not too shabby.
