These names may be unfamiliar to some of you. So introductions are certainly in order. Song Bin 宋斌 has been with the Connected Community since its very inception, and takes great care of the community's Chinese chapter, besides undertaking general management. I've been with ARM now for eight years now and currently manage India MarComm & PR . Though my involvement with the Connected Community is temporary (until we land a good replacement for Alban), I’m trying to get up to to speed and support the best way I can. In this phase, Song Bin 宋斌 is the main community manager. A couple of our users have been very proactive in bringing forward matters which needed our attention. A few others have extended a helping hand. To me, that is as ‘communal’ as as a community could get.
Thank you very much for the support & the understanding.
