Community Summit Working Day Plan

For those at the community summit, here’s the general plan for our team on Thursday.

8-9am: Arrive

9am: Opening Remarks

9:15am: Outline the projects we are going to work on, and divide up who’s doing what. Some projects will be able to start right in on doing actual tasks, while others will be planning meetings. Some projects will be better suited for deputiesProgram Supporter Community Program Supporters (formerly Deputies) are a team of people worldwide who review WordCamp and Meetup applications, interview lead organizers, and keep things moving at WordCamp Central. Find more about program supporters in our Program Supporter Handbook., some for organizers, and some it really won’t matter. There will be a variety of two types of projects you can choose to work on.

  • Tasks that once we’ve gone through what to do, you are off and running, a production machine helping us accomplish stuff through what some might consider drudgery, but in reality is the [insert useful metaphor here; it’s very late. 🙂 ]
  • Conversations/planning that have to happen to plot out a project or create outlines that can be used to frame the work we do after the summit is over and into the coming year.
