WordCamp US 2017 Contributor Day

WordCamp US Contributor Day is on December 3! If you plan to attend and contribute to the global community team that day, there are a few ways you can get involved (excitement!):

  1. Suggest projects that the team can work on! (Bonus points for suggestions of projects that can be completed in 4 hours by a group of folks with varying degrees of experience on our team. (Extra-shiny-rainbow-unicorn bonus points for suggestions of helpful things that brand-new contributors can do.)) We don’t make decisions on things without discussing them here on the team blog, so suggestions of “decide what we’re going to do about swag” won’t be helpful. If you’re looking for examples, you could review some Contributor Day posts from the past: 1, 2.
  2. Volunteer to work on a particular project, once we decide on them.
  3. Volunteer to lead a project group! This might include giving a meetup orientation to a group of organizer applicants, teaching new deputies how to vet applications, and lots of other things, depending on what the group decides we should focus on for that day.
  4. Volunteer to help organize WCUS Contributor Day! This job involves helping to curate the list of projects we’ll be working on, recruiting folks to help direct project groups on the day of the event, and helping contributors find the project group where they’ll be the most comfortable/helpful, on the day of the event.

Please comment on this post if you have project suggestions or would like to volunteer in any of the ways listed above! Hope to see you there!
