Since we’ve started distributing the Meetup annual survey in 2014, we haven’t seen a very high response rate. We could do much more than improve the questions on the survey.

Update: Contributor Orientation Tool
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. Europe 2019 organising team presented new tool that we’ve been developing to help new contributors select the make team they wish to contribute to – Contributor Orientation Tool. The tool was built as a prototype. As WordCamp Europe 2020 organising team is back to work, we are continuing our work on Contributor Orientation Tool as well.

Proposal Update: Speaker Feedback Tool
We recently posted a proposal for a speaker feedback tool to be baked into WordCamp sites. The proposal included some ideas and mockups, with a call for feedback, suggestions and questions. Based on the feedback from that post, we have some more refined mockups to share. In addition to that, we are looking for input on the data storage method.
