Even if you did not attend meetup events this past year, your opinion would be valuable! The survey takes less than 5 minutes to fill out, and the results will be shared by the Global Community Team to help all WordPress meetups improve.

WordPress Global Community Sponsors

A big thank you to our 2020 global sponsors!

Their generous support keeps the meetup program free for the whole community and helps to make sure ticket prices for WordCamps (when in-person events return) stay affordable.

The 2021 Global Community Sponsorship program was recently announced, and is offered on a quarterly basis to keep the program nimble, if our path to global in-person events accelerates in ways we don’t currently expect.

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 meetup groups on the WordPress chapter account allow any trusted, reliable member of the group to organize an event. 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.

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 haven’t stopped by the community team’s blog in a while check that out! There may be a few new projects you might be interested in.
