This month we will be holding a discussion around group event management. The group will now be more in line with the official WordPress Chapter. Since our meetup was started in 2010 before the WordPress Chapter program was created we’ve been doing it old school, but that is all changing and we hope that some of you will take advantage of this!
So what is changing?
Any member of the meetup group may now suggest and/ or schedule an event through the WordPress meetup site. When a new event is suggested/ scheduled a message will be sent to all group members telling them of the new event and allowing them to join the event or not.
In the past, only group organizers could schedule events. This was limiting the group to a single event a month on a single day with a single topic. By opening the group and allowing any member to schedule an event we are hoping the availability of events will grow.
More organizers = more events on different days, times and topics! Everyone wins!
We hope that those of you who are excited about education and have a passion for community will jump on board! Scheduling an event does take a little work. However, to help expedite the process we created an FAQ that will hopefully guide you past some of the issue you might encounter.
