Project Members may work either on central (Project Lead) or local (MarCon) marketing activities and are the fundamental resource for the promotion of Apache OpenOffice. More people start using Apache OpenOffice as a result of a personal recommendation than by any other route. People with specialist marketing skills such as market research, competitor intelligence, graphics, copywriting, translating, etc. are particularly welcomed.
