WordPress meetup organizer newsletter: September 2018

This newsletter was sent to meetup organisers via the meetup.com messages system today. 🙂

Hello WordPress Meetup organisers!

Welcome to another meetup organiser newsletter full of news, information and inspiration for your local meetup.

Newsletter contents:

  • Meetup Organisers Tracker and Badge
  • Ideas and suggestions for new meetups
  • Diversity Speaker Training Workshops

Meetup Organisers Tracker and Badge

We’ve recently been working on a new platform for managing meetup applications and keeping track of them in a central system. One of the benefits of this system is that we will finally be able to assign WordPress.org profile badges to all WordPress meetup group organisers!

To provide us with the WordPress.org usernames of all of WordPress meetup group organisers, we need all current organisers to add the info to this sheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1LYnNDDpBQC7przZyufG4W5mdO67BcTTy_yz8eHY24lc/edit?usp=sharing

Please fill in the fields next to the URL for your meetup group. The fields need the following information:

  • WordPress.org username for main contact: The WordPress.org username of the organiser who is the main contact with the Global Community Team (if there is no one person for this, then choose anyone from your team)
  • WordPress.org usernames of all organisers: A comma-separated list of the WordPress.org usernames of all of your meetup group’s organisers
  • Is the main contact’s WordPress.org email address still valid?: Select ‘Yes’ if the email address on the WordPress.org profile for the main contact is correct and in use, or select ‘No’ if it is not.

You can read more about the proposed badges here.

Ideas and suggestions for new meetups

From time to time we like to share some tips or some new things meetup groups are doing that is interesting.

The WordPress Meetup in Seville, Spain have a fixed meetup on the 10th of each month over a working lunch.

At such meetups, the participants simply decide to come and have lunch with each other. This is done on a workday, so it does not intrude on personal time.

This might be a great idea to try out in your local community, and see how to meet folks over lunch and have time for good discussions and exchanges, which might not possible at workshop-styled meetups.

Diversity Outreach Speaker training for Meetups

The next Diversity Outreach Speaker training for Meetups will be:

To sign up and get the details, either fill out our form and comment on  which date you’d would like to attend:http://tiny.cc/wpwomenspeak, or reply to a message you’ve already written to to the working group at speaker-training@wordcamp.org

Recap of the Diversity Outreach Speaker Training meeting on Sept 12, 2018

Attending: @jillbinder @miriamgoldman @dianewallace @angelasjin @simo70 @cguntur

Start: https://wordpress.slack.com/archives/C037W5S7X/p1536771695000100

Agenda

  1. Reports from you
  2. Reports from me
  3. Status of our Speaker Roster essay
  4. Doing trainings
  5. Anything else / open discussion

1. Reports from you

@jillbinder: First I’d like to hear about what you’ve been working on, any promotions you’ve done or are planning to do, any trainings you’ve run or are planning on running, anything else related to our team.

@miriamgoldman: I’m getting ready to run a train the trainers session with Larry at the end of the month. I’m also going to be promoting the training, and our group, at WCLAX next week.

Once my workload decreases at the day job, I’m going to run an actual in-person training session here in Ottawa. I have a friend who wants to do it, and there might be other interest.

@jillbinder: Have I or @lswanson shown you the script yet? If not, I’ll send that to you after the meeting.
It makes it easier, as @angelasjin can attest. 😉

@miriamgoldman: Not yet @jillbinder, so sending it along would be great!

@jillbinder: nods It’ll be up in public on the Training site soon, but is not quite yet as far as I know.

@angelasjin: Jill and I did a train the trainers session in late August, which went well! I’d love to do it again 🙂

@jillbinder: Yay @angelasjin! You did so great. In the Training section of this meeting today let’s talk about scheduling you for another one. 🙂

When we talk about the Training section, we can talk about how Angela and I did it. She lead while I watched and jumped in to fill in blanks as needed. Now she’s ready to do on her own (in my opinion……).

But there’s also the option to watch while someone else leads, too. Like @webrite recently did. 🙂 I believe she feels ready to start training too now.

@simo70: I’m organising WCMIL, and I did a “one to one workshop” 🙂

@jillbinder: That sounds great, @simo70 . What is a “one to one workshop” ?

@simo70: I did the workshop for a women that suffers “impostor syndrome”. After a call with me, she sent two applications 🙂

@jillbinder: Wow, @simo70 ! That is fantastic. Also thank you again for running it so many times for full groups, too. You’ve been a star with this.

@dianewallace: I have been talking to WordPress London about doing something, such as a workshop event, with the training – either stand alone or as part of a contributor day… I just need to do the training myself first!

@jillbinder: Fantastic, @dianewallace. Let’s talk in the Training section about getting you set up for getting trained. 🙂

Great work, everyone. We feel quite on track. I’m feeling pleased.

2. Reports from me

@jillbinder: Speaking of on track, my report starts with numbers. Wooooo numbers.

Our full number of folks who have expressed interest in some fashion: want training, have been trained, have run it with or without training: 45 !!

That actually includes the folks who have run it for more than one group: @sheilagomes and @simo70 in particular have added to that number.

The number who have been trained by us and/or who have felt ready to run it without our help: 32 !

A special mention goes to how many of those folks are members of our team: 14 !

I’m really pleased at our own team’s high participation. Particularly after my recent revelation that that was a priority for us. Also, when @kelliwise  ran a training, a number of those folk joined our team, so they added to our number as well.

The number of times it has been run for Meetups or groups that are close enough to Meetups to count towards that number (I’m counting companies sometimes, or Meetup-adjacent like WordCamps, BarCamps, etc.): 15
[number edited to reflect a Meetup popping in to the meeting letting us know that they ran one too]

That is the number that I am aware of, but it’s possible it has been run more times than that.

Our goal for the year is 27, so I’m very interested in finding out if there are others that we don’t currently know about and have tracked in our spreadsheet.

As a reminder, we track it in our spreadsheet here:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/195OBnYAOIvZNeoOSmginTtwzY8yegWCQWWm4Jf31gik/edit?usp=sharing

Does anyone have ideas on how we could find out who else has run it?

None? I have a couple of ideas for how we could find out if anyone else has run it…. Wondering what your thoughts are on these.

  1. We could ask the Meetups in the next newsletter that goes out. We almost always have an article in it, so we could include it in our article.

(Along with the mention of the Sept 29 Train the Trainers that @miriamgoldman and @lswanson are running.)

2. We can look through all the titles of Meetups that have been run this year and see if any look like they could have been our speaker training…….

Thoughts on these? And/or do they jog other ideas?

@dianewallace: We could ask our local meet ups to tweet/message all their local communities?

@jillbinder: Sure!

For the second idea, looking through the titles of Meetups, would anyone be willing to spend 1-2 hours within the next couple of weeks, before our next meeting, to do this? @andreamiddleton can tell us how to view all the Meetups titles.

@andreamiddleton: It just does it in CSV form only :slightly_smiling_face: and it’s not publicly available yet — lemme know time periods and I can export a report.

Fun fact: between June 1 and Sept 1, our chapter had 1335 meetup events!

@cguntur: I can work on the meetup titles

@angelasjin: I can work with @andreamiddleton on that

@jillbinder: Thanks both! Maybe you can both split it up and do half each?

We can get it in the Meetup newsletter going out later in September, and we can ask our local meetups to tweet/message their local communities asking them. @dianewallace’s idea doubles as a way to promote what we’re doing, too. I like it.

3. Status of our Speaker Roster essay

@jillbinder: I’ve gotten some good feedback from some folks on our team and a group not on our team who found it useful. I just need to finish incorporating the feedback, and then it’s ready to show the larger WordPress community for their feedback.

My goal is to finish it today or tomorrow and post it on the Make Community blog with a deadline of our next meeting.

That way it’ll overlap with the Community meeting a week from tomorrow.
There tends to be more response after posts are announced in that meeting. 🙂

And then in 2 weeks I should be able to incorporate that feedback then and then get it on up in the handbooks.

And then we can announce to everyone everywhere that there is this great resource that they can use. ^_^ #smallgoals

Particularly to our WordPress folks, of course. Tweets, mentioning at WordCamps, putting it into one of the Meetups newsletters, etc.

4. Doing trainings

@jillbinder: I would like to know:

  1. Would you like to run a Train The Trainers coming up? By yourself, as the lead with someone who is trained being your support, or watching/being support while someone else leads?
  2. I’m also interested in: Having you run the workshop for your local community, or even remote communities online.

    Do you have what you need for that?

    Do you need training? (cc @dianewallace)

@dianewallace: If there are any coming up I will sit in, but I should be able to just go through the training on my own tbh. Just need to find the time!

@jillbinder: Sounds good, @dianewallace. You have the option of sitting in on one, or if I haven’t already, I can send you the recording and the script.

@dianewallace: @jillbinder that sounds good – it would be useful to have the recording and the script (I’ll check in case you have already sent it though

@jillbinder: We have one running Sept 29th at 9am Pacific time. That is within an hour of this meeting, so it might work out in your timezone….

(I forget where that time lands in daylight savings time.)
It’s a Saturday.

@jillbinder: I know @angelasjin is happy to run another, so let’s also talk about what would be good timing for that. How about sometime in September or October, Angela?

@angelasjin: I can run one the week of October 15th!

@angelasjin Great! You can either pick a day that works for you in 9am PT, or you can doodle poll the folks in Helpscout who want the training and see what would work for them.

@angelasjin: I’ll reach out to the folks in HS

@jillbinder: Is anyone else either ready to run the Training or the Train the Trainers, or have a question that will help them get set up to do it?

5. Anything else / open discussion

@jillbinder: In our last 2 min, anyone have other questions or items related to our team’s work that they’d like to bring up?

Wonderful. Thanks all for attending. If there is anything, you can always reach me here or in DM afterwards.

I feel great about how we’re doing. Thank you all!

WordPress meetup organizer newsletter: August 2018

This newsletter was sent to meetup organizers via the meetup.com messages system today. 🙂
Hello WordPress Meetup organisers!
Welcome to another meetup organizer newsletter full of news, information, and inspiration for your local meetup.
Newsletter contents:
– WordPress 4.9.8 Maintenance Release
– The New WordPress Editor
– Idea for a new meetup format
– Call for organisers for open-source workshop
– Diversity Outreach Speaker training for Meetups

WordPress 4.9.8 Maintenance Release

WordPress 4.9.8 was shipped out as a maintenance release. This release had a fix for 46 bugs, some enhancements and tasks. The Twenty Seventeen theme, which is bundled, also received an update.
You can read more at the announcement post.

Try Gutenberg Callout

Another update with the WordPress 4.9.8 Maintenance Release is the “Try Gutenberg Callout”. Most users will now be presented with a notice in their WordPress dashboard.
In WordPress 4.9.8, the callout will be shown to the following users:
1. If Gutenberg is not installed or activated, the callout will be shown to Admin users on single sites, and Super Admin users on multisites.
2. If Gutenberg is installed and activated, the callout will be shown to Contributor users and above.
3. If the Classic Editor plugin is installed and activated, the callout will be hidden for all users.
This is a great time to talk to your meetup group about Gutenberg as many of your members will have started using it for the first time. You can learn more by reading  “Try Gutenberg” Callout in WordPress 4.9.8.

Idea for a new meetup format

From time to time we like to share some tips or some new things meetup groups are doing that is interesting.
Some community organizers are experimenting with creating a system for local communities to propose topics and vote on them. This is a popular trend among some Spanish Meetup groups.
Covering topics that your meetup group are directly interested in hearing about is a great way to attract and retain members!
Here are some of examples from Madrid, Irun, Barcelona and Tarragona.

Organize an Introduction to open-source workshop

Last year the WordPress Foundation funded two introduction to open-source workshops in Kanpur and Mombasa. This year the foundation will be funding four such workshops.
Event should be free of cost, open to anyone, and held in 2018. Strong preference will be given to organizers who are already members of a community group that is part of the WordPress open source project’s meetup chapter program, but have not yet organized a WordCamp.
Read more about it here and do apply quickly, as applications close on 23rd August 2018.

Diversity Outreach Speaker training for Meetups

The next Diversity Outreach Speaker training for Meetups will be:
Saturday, Aug 25 @ 4pm-6pm UTC
Wednesday, Aug 29 @ 4pm-6pm UTC

A new system for managing WordCamp camera kits

Thanks to @sippis for pushing this forward – we now have a new system for managing and requesting camera kits for WordCamps. Here’s the announcement and handbook page.

P2 posts needing review/feedback:

Call for topic suggestions: monthly meetup organizer newsletter

Nothing in particular important from the UTC 11:00 meeting despite the information that there are 635 meetup groups right now in the chapter program.

Call for Volunteers: Global Diversity Working Group

@lauraquellmalz: Got positive feedback on this and the group is going to get working on several stuff. A blogpost with all needed information is following soon.

Discussion: What makes a sponsor incompatible with our program?

This post is the 3rd most commented post on our P2 with heated discussion. The comments will be closed at August, the 24th. If you comment, try to stay in topic. Also simple “+1” helps the discussion to get more feedback.

I’m humbled by how much grace and thoughtfulness so many of our team are showing in this discussion <3

@andreamiddleton

Documentation review: WordPress Events in Dashboard

@sippis gathered some information in one place. Before publishing this she’d like to have some feedback on this. Post, GoogleDoc

Additional Notes

@lauraquellmalz started a discussion (slack) about the current state of the community pages. The current content should be reviewed and more information about the community team and its workings groups should be added to our website. A concept for this will be made. Contact her if you want to help.

Recap of the Diversity Outreach Speaker Training meeting on Aug 8, 2018

Attending: @jillbinder @miriamgoldman @angelasjin @webrite @lswanson @dianewallace @cguntur @ncsumarit

Start: https://wordpress.slack.com/archives/C037W5S7X/p1533747634000032

Agenda:

  • I have some quick recaps
  • Check in who else has recaps
  • Running our next train the trainers

Jill’s Recaps:

Summer has been slow. I don’t think any more groups have run it since our last meeting, though I know that Seattle is running our training this evening. Hooray!

We’ve had a trickle of a few more folks being interested in running it coming in through our HelpScout queue
(via our form here: http://tiny.cc/wpwomenspeak )

A lady in Germany is very interested in promoting our work. One of her questions for me is if anyone in our team attends WordCamps in Europe, particularly wordcamp nijmegen at start of september coming up.

@sheilagomes and @simo70 have been our most active Europe members so far, so I’m pinging them.

Though of course anyone in our group out in that area is welcome to respond.

Thanks to @kelliwise for promoting our group — we’ve had an influx of new members.

Miriam’s Recap:

Status quo here. Main thing is prepping for WordCamp Montreal this weekend. Our group is being featured in my talk.

I’ll be at WCLAX September 21-23 so will do outreach there as well.

@jillbinder: Wonderful! They are a hub of Women of WordPress out that way, so we might be able to leverage that to getting some to participate in the WordPress community along those same lines further and/or run these trainings themselves.

Melanie’s Recap:

I will be attending the September WordPress Toronto meeting where I will talk attendees about our group.

I will run the training for our group likely late September or early October.

Larry’s Recap:

I submitted our Train the Trainers lesson plan last week to the #training team. They haven’t accepted the pull request yet. If folks want to see the current draft, let me know.

I’ll be speaking at WC NYC Sept 15-16. Planning to do outreach there.

Chandrika’s Recap:

I have been working on the HelpScout.

Will have more time after the 15th. So, probably can do a bit more then.

Next Train The Trainers

@jillbinder: I’d like to talk about running our next Train the Trainers for the Meetups. We have gotten through a lot of our queue of meetups waiting to be trained and now we’re down to only around 10.

However, quite a few of those would like to run it this Fall, so I would like to see if we can get a training in in August.

I will be starting a school program in September, so I have a vested interest in getting more trainers on our team ready to be training. 😉

I propose:

  • Either folks watch Larry or I
  • Maybe even co-facilitate
  • If anyone wishes, they can even be the main facilitator and Larry or I can jump in as needed

A reminder that our current version is mostly hitting play on a recording, but there is a bit of speaking before, during, and after. We have that all scripted out!

The only “winging it” parts are the Q&A. But there you just answer what you can and let them know you’ll get back to them on anything you don’t know. If Larry or I are there, we can answer those ones.

@lswanson: I could do one Sat. 8/25.

+1 for co-facilitation – and for letting new folks lead with me or Jill as back-up.

@webrite: i would like to sit in on one, how do i make that happen

@jillbinder: @webrite That would be wonderful. We run them on Zoom, so you would be another “participant” on the Zoom call.

@webrite: I will be happy to join in and see this in action

@miriamgoldman: If you have it scripted out, I can do:

  • Labour Day weekend (September 1-2)
  • September 7-9
  • September 14-16
  • September 28-30

In terms of actually running the workshop, once I confirm my WordCamps for October, I’ll figure out when I can run it that month in Ottawa.

@angelasjin: I could do one during the last week of August
(although not on Monday the 27th)
I can do the weekend of September 8th as well.

@cguntur: How long is the training? 1hr? If it is 1 hr, then I can maybe do it on the 30th

@jillbinder: We leave up to 2 hours for it. The recording is 1h 20m, and there is time for talking before and after.

It is a good timeframe, and also we will probably look at shortening it in the future. @tinat found someone to shorten our video (I’m guessing it would shave 5-10 min), which I’m looking forward to finding out how that is going.

@jillbinder: I’ll be available to participate (and/or run) one of them. Looks like @lswanson will be able to do one as well. These all work for me except for Labour Day weekend. I’ll touch base with everyone else on their desired level of participation and work the trainings around that.

@ncsumarit: I’m hoping to run one with my colleagues in the Raleigh Meet-up in the fall and spring. I’m available to help run one in the future but should at least co-facilitate or attend one before then.

@jillbinder: Wonderful @ncsumarit! I forget if we have your info in our form yet so that we can follow up with you about this? http://tiny.cc/wpwomenspeak. Just to make sure we’re talking about the same thing, the ones that we are running right now are for training others in how to run it. Which is slightly different from just running it for a group. Though it would still be valuable to attend this if you wish.

@lswanson: To what @jillbinder just said about us all being on same page – if anyone has ideas about how to label our three activities – 1) local folks running the workshops, 2) community team folks training local organizers, 3) more experienced community folks training those trainers to run the trainings – I, for one, am all ears

@jillbinder: So far I am calling them Training and Train the Trainers. Other titles welcome.

@jillbinder: We will be using the calendar that @angelasjin set up for us last time to share with each other when the trainings are occurring.

@webrite: Where do I find the calendar.

@angelasjin: If you DM me your email address, I’ll add you to the calendar! Everyone who has access to the calendar should be able to add other folks to it as well.

@jillbinder: Thanks all for helping to move us all forward. I’m looking forward to the Fall when Meetups are in action and we are helping them diversify their speakers.
