Become an Event Organizer

WordPress is an open sourceOpen Source Open Source denotes software for which the original source code is made freely available and may be redistributed and modified. Open Source **must be** delivered via a licensing model, see GPL. project, open to anyone who wants to join. That is true for event organizers, too! Many groups still have one event per month, often a presentation or lecture followed by Q&A or a social hour. These regular events are great, but it means that people who cannot make that time each month are left out, as are people who are interested in different topics. 

All meetups on the WordPress chapter account allow any trusted, reliable member of the group to organize an event, so if you’ve been wishing for a particular kind of WordPress event in your town, this is a great time to become a WordPress organizer. 

There are some ideas for event formats to inspire you, on the Events Formats page in the Meetup Organizer handbook.

The possibilities are endless, and as long as it relates to WordPress, you can organize within your meetup group! Start a conversation on your group’s discussion board or contact the local organizing team with your ideas!

Contribute to the WordPress Project

One of the things we have heard from people is a desire for their meetup group to be more connected to the overall WordPress open source project. If you don’t stop by the community team’s blog often, please subscribe to email updates! There may be a few new projects you might be interested in.

Here’s to a great 2020, and as always, thanks for using WordPress!
