WordCamp US 2018 – Get Involved Table

As always we are going to have a Get Involved table at 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. Thank you to the wonderful people that volunteered to staff it.

WordCamp Blocks: Round 1 Designs

The first round of designs is here! People offered to help and design is undergoing.

Discussion: Logos in WordCamp Videos

Quite a few people commented, so we reached a decision.

Sponsor logos at the venue (banners, podium, etc.) that are captured on video are fine to leave in and we don’t need to make a rule that organisers must remove banners from the stage.

Speakers are allowed to include their company logo in their slides, but only in an optional opening/closing informational slide and not throughout the presentation. This is fine even if their company is not a sponsor of the event.

Similarly, a speaker can wear clothing with their company logo on it, even if their company is not a sponsor.

No company logos of any kind are to be added in post-production.

Proposed 2019 Global Community Sponsorship Program

The Global Community Sponsorship working group has made a proposal, we gathered some comments and held office hours for companies that were considering becoming global sponsors. The new program and the sponsors have been announced on the Community Blog.

Increase in WordCamp maximum ticket price for 2019

After a thoughtful discussion earlier this year, from 2019 the maximum ticket price for WordCamps will be $25/pp/day: this is the maximum price and organisers can charge less.

Reminder: Over the years we’ve kept allowing costs to rise for events as the economy dictates. This ticket cost is us catching up to what folks are spending. Not an indicator that we should spend more 🙂
