Community Team Training #12: WordCamp Budgeting Tips
We are excited to invite you to attend our upcoming Zoom Training Session scheduled as follows:
Community Team Training #12: WordCampWordCampWordCamps 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. Budgeting Tips
How much money do I need to raise? How much is “normal”? How do I keep the budget review call from being a sleepless night? How do I get Central to pay suppliers as soon as possible? How do I know if everything is going according to plan or if we’re going to have problems in the last month? Why does everything need to balance?
Event organizers and community team members alike face event budgets with more questions than answers. In this session, we will try to answer many of these questions and look at ways to make life easier for all of us.
Juan Hernando @unintended8 has twice been a budget team leader at WordCamp Europe and collaborated in four editions of the local WordCamp in Pontevedra, as well as reviewed other event budgets I have mentored and have seen many things we can share to improve together. We welcome all your ideas and experiences as well!
Please RSVP, so you will receive an invitation in your email that will include the Zoom link. If you have any questions, feel free to comment.
