At last week’s WordPress Louisville meetup, I got the ball rolling on discussion for a WordCamp Louisville 2016. It got more interest than I would’ve guessed, and had several people all express a willingness to help. But no one seemed too interested in being a lead organizer. So I decided I’d wrangle that job, since a lot of people were there and willing to help.
Since then, I’ve worked with WordCamp Central to become the lead organizer of an upcoming WordCamp Louisville. There’s nothing official to announce other than we’re now in pre-planning and it’s my fault if we don’t get beyond that.
There’s been some continued planning in the #WordPress channel of the louisville.io slack team, and we’ve decided to meet in-person next week on Thursday, March 24th at 6pm to start planning stuff we need to figure out early on. These include venues (and backups,) potential sponsors, and divvying up some of the jobs that need to be handled in these next few months. If you love WordPress and want to help, let me know and I’d love to have you join us.
If you’d like to volunteer at, or even just attend, the WordCamp later this year please let me know that too. These early planning meetings would not be necessary for you, but I’ll surely be contacting you closer to the event.
