The easiest way to have the Community Team or Community Contributor badges assigned to you is for you to request them (the system doesn’t allow us to add the badge to your profile until you submit a request). To make this request please go the Community Team or Community Contributor pages and request membership for the group.

If the WordCamp Organizer and WordCamp Speaker badges disappear from your profile, you can try the following:

1) Remove your WordPress.org username from the Speaker (or Organizer) profile, save it
2) Add your username back in and save again
3) Your badge should re-appear like magic

Thank you to Courtney P.K. for the temporary workaround. This is a known bug and can be tracked on meta.
