      • Last week my to do list saw a lot of community mediation and I’m glad to say that mostly really positive conversations have been coming from that.
      • Contract review and discussions were a bit of time last week as well.
      • Attended WordCamp Omaha as a speaker and a volunteer and was delighted to see such an enthusiastic community taking hold there.

    Call for Asia/Pacific region meetup organizers to make video relay 

    Hello everyone!
    WordCamp Denpasar accepted my talk about organizing local meetups! So I’m planning to make video relay of local meetup in Asia/Pacific region.

    This is my session description:

    Organizing Meetup in your city

    As you know WordPress is global, but I’d like to focus on Asia/Pacific region in this video because Europe and US communities already have a great online presence.

    The video requires:
    1. Get together with all attendee (except who don’t want to show their faces).
    2. Say something all together. For example “We love WordPress” or “Hello from *city name*”.
    3. Smartphone is enough.
    4. I expect 3-10 second length.
    5. Send me until 14 November by Slack mayuko or email to hello atmark mayuko.me.

    If you have any question please ask me. I also wrote blog post about it:

      Hosted the first Summerville Area meetup with @YayCheryl as part of the WordPress Charleston User Group on Monday night (after a week’s delay due to Hurricane Matthew)! We had a good crowd of about 20 people out of the 30+ that RSVP’d. Everyone seemed to have a great time connecting and talking about plans for future meetups! Working on planning November now with hopefully a speaker this time! 🙂

      • WP Baixada Rio is a new meetup group at Rio de Janeiro state, I’m mentoring (talking everyday with the organizers) and help to add them adding an Existing Meetup.com Group to WordPress profile
      • WP Rio is an existing meetup group since 2011 that I helped to create and it was added to WordPress profile on meetup.com too
      • Talking with some guys from Niterio, Rio de Janeiro, maybe they’ll start the third meetup group in Rio de Janeiro state but it’s not confirmed yet.

      Thanks @courtneypk for helping on it!

      WC Cincinnati Checkin

      They are doing well, they have a few concerns about ticket sales. Suggestions are welcome!

      ### Concerns about Ticket sales

      • tickets: over 100 tickets sold, about 50/50 attendees to coupons
      • communications for tickets: tapped all local networks, blogger meetups, ux meetups, all major colleges

      ### suggestions

      • localized facebook
      • bit.ly to tack links
      • find the minimum number of tickets to sell to break even

      ### noted items from our call
      – singage approved and going to print
      – when you order shirts you can use averages to make your order
      – speaker slides are being asked for
      – walk though has been done twice
      – name badge order is set to go
      – signage is good to go
      – communicate with speakers has been consistent
      – are current getting numbers for speaker dinner

        RE: ticket sales – If they have yet to ask speakers to share/blog/tweet about their involvement that would help boost ticket sales a bit.

    • Jenny 4:23 pm on October 3, 2016 Permalink | Log in to Reply

      tshirts – take sizes from ticket sales as a question.

      100 people is a good amount of people! – What was their aim?

      • WC Omaha Check-in: We are right at a month away from WordCamp Omaha and have been meeting weekly with the lead organizer. We’ve had a little trouble getting local sponsorship to surface, but the schedule is settled and the team has some marketing plans to put in effect soon.
      • I also reconnected with some of our deputies that we haven’t heard from in a while to see how we could help move things forward for them.
      • Getting ready for our community chat this week!

      Finally back to deputy duties 🎉

      • Vetted 4 applications
      • Scheduled orientation call for Friday together with @_dorsvenabili
      • Checked-in with WordCamp Athens, Geneva and Stockholm: they are about 6 weeks away from their WordCamps and doing great! We are doing chats instead of call cause everyone is super busy.
