Europe or US before you’ll be familiar with the Get Involved table – it’s a central location (an actual physical table) where attendees can find out more information about contributing to WordPress. The table is staffed by community volunteers, and we aim to have it staffed by at least one person (but preferably more) from the start of registration to the end of the final session on each day of the WordCamp, not including Contributor Day Contributor Days are standalone days, frequently held before or after WordCamps but they can also happen at any time. They are events where people get together to work on various areas of https://make.wordpress.org/ There are many teams that people can participate in, each with a different focus. https://2017.us.wordcamp.org/contributor-day/ https://make.wordpress.org/support/handbook/getting-started/getting-started-at-a-contributor-day/..
People working at the Get Involved table simply need to be able to explain how WordPress contributions work and help people find a good fit in the project for their particular set of skills.
What we’re looking for here is for community members to sign up for volunteer shifts at the Get Involved tables for WordCamp Europe 2019 in Berlin. We have split up the two conference days up into 1-hour shifts to make things easier and it would be great to have a selection of people from across the project (not just the Community team) involved here.
The schedule and sign-up sheet is here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1PAts7eeSKYcBgI-NmLMWBj70_utBFjwq5uVXPTxieWE/edit?usp=sharing – simply add your name to the white blocks in the “Community Volunteers” columns for any shifts that you would like to take. Note that there are 2 tabs in the sheet – one for each day. You can reference the event schedule to make sure you don’t miss any sessions that you particularly want to attend.

- Will you be at WCUS WordCamp US. The US flagship WordCamp event.? Are you interested in helping staff this table? Andrea and/or I will be there most of the time, but I’d like to rotate in some replacements, especially anyone who’s interested in having one at their WordCamps in the future, or anyone who actively gives advice to WC organizers (deputies Community Deputies are a team of people all over the world who review WordCamp and Meetup applications, interview lead organizers, and generally keep things moving at WordCamp Central. Find more about deputies in our Community Deputy Handbook., formers orgs who are active in #events channel on slack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform https://slack.com/. The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at https://make.wordpress.org/chat/. or in org forums).
- I’ve updated the banner that describes the teams since last year, and ordered extras. I’d like to have these shipped between WCs like we do with the camera kits, and would like to get a few volunteers willing to help with keeping track of where the banners are/making sure they get sent to the appropriate next event in the region. Anyone interested?
- I’d like to get some postcards printed in place of/in addition to the flyers I have made in the past. Any designers want to volunteer to help put those together?
