Elaine Ashton has been active in Perl Mongers almost since its beginning. She has been involved in the New York, St. Louis, and Boston Perl user groups which were some of the first user groups to get started.

He's a major contributor to the core Perl documentation and the Perl FAQ, senior editor of The Perl Journal, moderator of the Perl advocacy mailing list (among others), and has been the program chair for The Perl Conference in 1999 and 2000.
