[webappsec] Brad Hill stepping down as co-chair

# Brad Hill (a day ago)

One of the most impactful parts of my career and a thing I'm proudest of has been helping facilitate the work this group has done over the last five years, but it is time to hand that opportunity over to someone else.

It has been some time since I felt like I was really able to give this group the energy and attention it deserves, and between a new job role where this work is less aligned with the projects I'm accountable for on a day-to-day basis, and adjusting my work/life balance as a new parent, that seems unlikely to change. I plan to still participate and contribute, but keeping myself on the critical path for regular functions of the group would do it more harm than good.

As a last announcement from the chair's position, I want to extend my thanks to everyone who has participated in making this such an amazing community, for the impact we've delivered and continue to deliver, and for the dedication to friendly cooperation among rivals in the interest of making everyone on the Web safer. I also want to give my special personal thanks to my co-chair Dan Veditz and former co-chair EKR for their leadership and assistance, and for stepping up to keep the group moving ahead when other demands kept me from pulling my proper weight here.

I'll miss seeing everyone at TPAC this year, but hope to see you all again, face-to-face, soon.

Sincerely,

Brad Hill
