WCUS Contributor Day Leads Needed

Hey all, I hope this is the right way to do this again (It’s how we did it last year). I’m organizing the WordCampWordCamp WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress. They're one of the places where the WordPress community comes together to teach one another what they’ve learned throughout the year and share the joy. Learn more. US contributor dayContributor 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/. and I need someone, or better yet a couple people, who will be attending and able to lead the polyglots group during contributor day. Most of the responsibility is helping facilitate the group on the day of, but there is also some planning to do ahead of time.

I generally try to ask three things of the leads:
1) Please have a plan in place for onboarding new people to your team – whether that’s training them, getting them tools, just explaining what you actually do, etc.
2) Please have a plan in place for existing contributors to be productive, maybe a project/goal.
3) If either of those are completely fleshed out or particularly cool, let me know! The WCUS marketing, content, and social teams would love to talk about them 🙂

Contributor day is the last day of the conference (December 9th) in Nashville, TN
