Many WordPress meetups around the world have been dormant the past two years, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and organizer burnout. Yet thriving meetups are crucial for the health of the global WordPress community!
As such, the Community Team is embarking on an initiative to reactivate meetups around the world.
In the months ahead, the Global Community Team A group of community organizers and contributors who collaborate on local events about WordPress — monthly WordPress meetups and/or annual conferences called WordCamps. will directly reach out to the organizers of every dormant WordPress meetup to:
- Check on the status of the meetup
- Encourage reactivation
- Ask how we can best support the organizers
- Identify whether new organizers are needed
We define a dormant meetup as one that has not held an event in the past six months (virtual or in-person). There are hundreds of dormant WordPress meetups, which means there is significant opportunity to reactivate our global community!
But to do so, we need your help!
The Community Team is seeking Supporters who are willing to conduct personal check-ins and follow-up with meetup organizers. Each Supporter will be assigned a defined set of meetups to reach out to, with the size of your set based on your availability.
Supporters will conduct this outreach via a shared meetup reactivation email account, and document their outreach efforts and organizer responses in a central tracking system.
Every contribution is valuable, no matter the size!
