One of the things I’ve been up to the past year is serving as one of 10 co-organizers of WordCamp Philly 2017, which was October 28 and 29 at the University of the Sciences. We’re winding down for 2017 and looking ahead to next year.
To get started, we’re again offering an opportunity for members of the WordPress community to join the organizing team.
If you’d like to be a WordCamp Philly 2018 co-organizer, apply online before January 1. Along with the application you’ll find information about what to expect in terms of time and activities. You don’t need to be a WordPress expert to get involved in planning a WordCamp. Communication, design, organizational and people skills are just a few of the assets that are more important than knowing code when it comes to planning an event.
Having a large, diverse organizing team brings multiple viewpoints and talents to the effort. WordCamps are a lot of work, so starting early and having a substantial team go a long way toward shaping a successful event.
For 2017 we had many more applicants than we could add to the team. We’ll let you know one way or another if you’re selected — and if not, there will still be opportunities to get involved as a speaker or a volunteer.
If you enjoyed WordCamp Philly 2017 and want to be a part of the team, now’s your chance. Sign up!
