> Directions Council[1], but will leave his position as coordinator and
> spokesperson. We thank him for his superhuman efforts, which were rewarded

> consolidation of our structure, following our registration as a French
> association [3] one year ago. Here is how La Quadrature du Net will
> reorganise itself. ***

> Due to your continued support La Quadrature du Net's team has grown over
> the last year to include seven paid staff in the operational team
> (including three interns) – without counting Jérémie – and six active
> members [4] in the Strategic Directions Council (which will increase in
> size in the coming months). Moreover, numerous volunteers are heavily
> involved in our activities, which allows La Quadrature to function on a
> daily basis. The change in Jérémie's position will accelerate the
> establishment of the new organisational structure.
>
> Firstly, La Quadrature is hiring a Campaign Manager [5]. Their role will
> be to communicate with decision makers, parliamentarians, other citizen
> organisations and the wider public on La Quadrature's projects, and to
> coordinate volunteers involved in these actions. It requires a particular
> kind of engagement and work style, and Jérémie was until now in the front
> line of all this, especially on the European level.
>
> Secondly, the management of La Quadrature's public voice, including its
> interaction with the media, for which Jérémie was solely responsible until
> now, will become more inclusive. Initiated six months ago, this change is
> the occasion to make use of the different approaches, styles and points of
> view represented in our organisation. This shift towards a more collective
> work dynamic in La Quadrature du Net will ensure our ability to react
> quickly and in-depth to events and requests, from journalists, politicians,
> associations or citizens. It is also represent a development opportunity
> for everyone in our enlarged team.
>
> You can count on us to do the utmost to ensure that this reorganisation
> makes La Quadrature du Net more efficient in its defence of Internet
> freedom and its promotion of citizens' ability to act in the digital
> sphere. And if you have the slightest concern, remember that Jérémie will
> be right there in the Strategic Directions Council, ready to spur us on. <3
