Community Team Meetings

The Community Team meets on the first and third Thursdays of every month at 11:00 UTC and 20:00 UTC in the #community-team channel on Slack. These meetings usually run for about an hour.

Hosting the Community Team Chat

Any deputy can host the Community Team Chats! The format generally goes like this:

  1. Mark the start of the meeting with a greeting.
  2. Ask deputies to check in by telling us what they’re working on, how things are going, if they have anything blocking their progress, and how other deputies can help.
  3. Refer to the agenda that is posted on Make/Community a few days before the chat, post the relevant links, and allow for discussion.
  4. Highlight any open P2 posts that are in need of feedback, and/or posts that deputies should be aware of.
  5. If there is time, open discussion on other topics that may come up.
  6. Close the meeting.

It is generally a good practice to try to keep the conversation moving in the interest of time. If heated debates start to happen and/or a discussion goes on too long, guide folks to post/comment on the P2 for further discussion.

You are welcome to use the below script for Community Team chats if you’d like!

We’re kicking off our Community Team Chat now! We have these meetings at both 11:00 UTC and 20:00. Same agenda, same discussions, just different people! 🙂
React to this message with your flags so we can see where you’re all from!

For anyone who is joining for the first time (whether active or observing), this is a meeting where community deputies discuss issues that have come up, WordCamps/meetups they are working on, and generally keeping up to date on what is going on in this corner of the WordPress project.

Most contributors on this team are volunteers, but we do have a handful of people who are sponsored to do this work. Ask questions as you have them, but remember we are family-friendly around here.

Reminder: we discuss issues during the chats, but we make decisions on the community blog.

Today’s agenda is here:

First on the agenda is the usual *Deputy Check-in*. What are you working on, and how’s it going? Do you have any blockers that your teammates can help you with?

Let’s move on to the next item on our agenda:
