Announcement: Review of WordCamp sites without a tracker item – removal of some old WordCamp sites
Some WordCamp 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. sites missing their counterpart in the WordCamp tracker. We are now going through this list and will remove WordCamps sites for events that didn’t take place.

New and ongoing discussions
Outreach to WordCamp Mentors
Would you be interested in helping Angela with some outreach to our current roster of WordCamp mentors Event Supporter (formerly Mentor) is someone who has already organised a WordCamp and has time to meet with their assigned mentee every 2 weeks, they talk over where they should be in their timeline, help them to identify their issues, and also identify solutions for their issues.? With all the changes to the program this past year, it seems timely to check in with our mentors to see if they are still interested in mentoring WordCamps and where we can better support them.
Revisiting Learn WordPress Workshop Application Vetting Process
Some community members have been helping with the Learn WordPress workshop and discussion group facilitator application vetting process. Naoko proposes few changes to the process for making it smoother.
Request for feedback: Team goals check
As we enter Q2 of 2021, it seems appropriate to check where we are with the action items set for Q1 and Q2 in our Team goals. If you are working with some action item or do know the progress of one, please leave an update in the comments of the post.
Timeline for the Global Sponsorship Program
We published the official Global Sponsorship program on March 23rd and it included a deadline for Q2 sponsorships just 3 days later (March 26th). Taco raised a point that they think this isn’t reasonable and we might have lost some sponsorships because of that.
Opportunity to bring things into discussions that weren’t on the meeting agenda and if anyone has something they would like to share with the team. If you have a topic in mind before the meeting, please add it into the comments of this post.
Hope to see you on Thursday, either on Asia-Pacific / EMEA or Americas friendly version of the meeting!
Preliminary agenda was put together in collaboration of @sippis and @kcristiano.
