The Mozilla Reps program aims to empower and support volunteer Mozillians who want to become official representatives of Mozilla in their region/locale.
The program provides a simple framework and a specific set of tools to help Mozillians to organize and/or attend events, recruit and mentor new contributors, document and share activities, and support their local communities better.

Rep of the month
This month's Rep is Michael Kohler from Berne in Switzerland. He started contributing Firefox patches as a teenager in 2008. Four years later he became a Mozilla Rep. Michael is continuously firing up the Swiss community. Most recently he organized swag for an event in Zurich which was all about Rust. Since Michael is super-charged with organization superpowers, he also started to set up events in Germany and Austria. Among his 2014 achievements is the successful organization of the German-speaking Community Meeting in Berlin in early February. This makes Michael one of the few people who manage to pull off events in three different countries within a couple of months. Further broadening our community growth Michael is reaching out a wide range of Mozillians covering areas such as L10N, hacking and Webmaker. Please join us in wishing Michael all the best for his future Mozilla endeavors!
