Celebration/Achievements in the Last Week

  • @michelleames — I signed my WCUS organiser agreement yesterday!
  • @yvettesonneveld — Since the schedule has been announced, I am excited to share that I will be speaking at WCLDN.
  • @jenblogs4u — I’m speaking at WordCamp Santa Clarita, a brand new camp with a thriving community!
  • @abhanonstopnewsuk — Lot of work on a number of cards this week just moving them forward, helping those who have asked for assistance, and liaising with community-team on items which they are taking forward too. Well done to everyone involved, a great team effort on all these. As a team, working together, it is great to see what we can achieve and share.

Task Lead Updates

  • @harryjackson1221https://trello.com/c/SdIcVK6q/257-showcase-redesign-organization-and-requirements. We were unable to meet this past Monday, everyone seems to be coming down sick, but we will be attempting to set up another meeting for either this weekend or beginning of the coming week. If anyone wishes to attend for the Showcase Redesign meeting to have input on the organizational needs, and discuss some other important factors. We will set up another doodle in the next day or so to ensure we select the most inclusive meeting time! If you would like to be included, please let us know and we will gladly add you to the DM.

New Business

  • @abhanonstopnewsuk — WordCamp Nordic Contribution Day Marketing Table https://trello.com/c/EBGBbpE0/262-marketing-table-at-wordcamp-nordic-contribution-day. We are putting some items together for this. If you have any other suggestions, please let me know as we need to send the information today.
  • @abhanonstopnewsuk — WordPress Translation Day 4. This month we will be putting together communications and marketing material for this. @maedahbatool will be working with the team from marketing (thanks). If anyone else is interested or in being a local event organizer (note will be published on this in coming weeks) or helping with marketing/ communications please do reply to this thread or chat to @zetaraffix or me.
  • @maedahbatool — I’ll be writing an introductory plus a promotional post featuring the proceedings of Translation day.
  • @abhanonstopnewsuk — We also have a contributor day and a contributor in general post which is to be published soon and being potentially adapted for the handbook. Will share this with you @michelleames. For WCEU perspective, we have an AMA on Contributor Days, from which we are producing Q&As which will also be useful for future WordCamps. This is kindly being promoted at other WordCamps. There might be some collaboration here with yourselves at WCUS https://2019.europe.wordcamp.org/2018/12/17/ask-me-anything-about-contributor-day/
