Meeting times starting from 2021-02-18 and Daylight Savings Time

Community Team Meeting times are changing based on the result of a poll we had some time ago. Both versions of the meetings are going to be held one hour later starting from our next meetings on 2021-02-18 (next week!). The day is not changing, it’s still the first and third Thursdays of every month.

New times for the meetings are:

Asia-Pacific / EMEA friendly meeting: 12:00 UTC
Americas friendly meeting: 21:00 UTC

Changes will be reflected in our blog, deputyProgram Supporter Community Program Supporters (formerly Deputies) are a team of people worldwide who review WordCamp and Meetup applications, interview lead organizers, and keep things moving at WordCamp Central. Find more about program supporters in our Program Supporter Handbook. calendar and calendar tomorrow latest. If you spot a place where old meeting times are told, please let me know in the comments.

Daylight Savings Time planning

DST is here again and some parts of the world are moving their clocks. In previous years, we have moved the meeting times accordingly one hour forward after EU/UK has started the DST on 2021-03-29.

What we should do this year, move the meeting times like we have done in the past or stick with the same UTC times regardless of DST? Please share your opinion in the comments!

Request for Feedback: Community Team Meeting times for 2021

It has been a long time since our Community Team Meetings times have been revised, and we’ve checked the suitability of those from our current team members. As the new year starts, it’s a good time to do the check and see if there’s a need to change the meeting times.

Community Team Meetings are held on the first and third Thursdays of every month. Each meeting happens twice in the same day to cater to different time zones. We plan to keep all this unchanged.

Currently, our meeting times are 11:00 UTC and 20:00 UTC. This is the part we are interested in and looking to change in case some other times prove to be more appropriate for most of the Community Team members.

To vote on the times, please fill this Doodle. Times are shown in your local timezone by default. Make sure to check that Doodle guessed your timezone right. If you want to change the timezone for times shown, use the timezone selector right above the table view.

Please note that the poll is used to vote on times for the rest of the year, regardless it having only one date.

You can vote for multiple times and for both, EMEA / Asia-Pacific and US friendly, meeting times. Team reps will choose the two times that have gotten most votes but do use consideration in order to ensure covering all timezones.

Next two team meetings, on 2021-01-21 and 2021-02-04, will still be held 11:00 UTC and 20:00 UTC. If meeting times are subject to change as a result of this vote, first meeting which will take place at the new time is 2020-02-18.

Please vote before 2021-02-05.
