Announcement: monthly chat for WordCamp organisers

A long, long time ago we started a discussion, here on the blog, about how we could support Community team mentors. This is completely OT and somehow related to this announcement 🙂

If you read the comments you will see that one of the issues that I raised is that we have a lot more WordCamp Mentors but still a lot of WordCamps don’t have one: this is why I am starting a new monthly chat for all WordCamp Organisers and I hope this will also help Mentors come together and exchange information.

Who is this for

WordCamp organisers, old and new, potential organisers, mentors.

Proposal for a general agenda

  • 1 hour meeting
  • 30 minutes – updates from the WordCamp Community Support: posts from the blog that you might have missed, new tools, deep dive into a specific handbook section
  • 30 minutes – open floor, bring up anything you need help with

Kick off meeting – October 25th 2018, 13:00 UTC

Since we need to start somewhere, I am taking the initiative to schedule the first meeting at a time that is a bit in between: Thursday, October 25, 13:00 UTC.

For the following chat we can decide together when it’s the best time to meet. If other mentors want to host the chats we might even do it twice a month 🙂

We will meet in the #community-events channel in Slack

Agenda for October 25th 2018

  • Introductions: mission, plans
  • WordCamp Organising news: posts from the blog that WordCamp organisers and mentors should be familiar with
  • One handbook section at a time: venue and date
