New and ongoing discussions

Proposal: 2021 Global Community Sponsorship program
As our events program will look again this year very different than we normally would have, there’s also need to redefine how our Global Community Sponsorship program will look as we can’t promise the usual benefits. A team of experienced global Community Sponsorship program contributors set up a proposal, and they propose offering one package only with completely new benefits, available on a quarterly basis. The comments deadline has already passed, but we surely can have discussion around this topic although.

Proposal to improve the organizing experience for online WordCamps
Over the past year, WordPress event organizers around the globe have learned so much about the process of organizing WordCamps, meetups, and other events online because we had to do that to keep going. Now that we’ve had a year to come together in this new way several of us have seen common obstacles. We want to tackle the three most common ones; tools, documentation and money. Please leave your feedback and share this post with everyone who organised online WordCampWordCamp WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress. They're one of the places where the WordPress community comes together to teach one another what they’ve learned throughout the year and share the joy. Learn more. during 2020, their feedback would help a lot!
