I am probably going to ask this question to every answer like this

What has prevented you from doing/encouraging these things as an
ordinary member? The marketing team is open to all, several members
propose/organise local events (, FOSDEM DevRoom, Boston
Summit, GNOME Asia Summit, GNOME conferences at FISL & Latinoware in
Brasil, GNOME stands at conferences around the world), and so on.

What makes you think you will be more able to do these things as a board
