Looking For WordCamp 2017 Organizers and Volunteers

We are in the midst of planning of our next WordCamp Miami for 2017. WordCamps are non-profit community events run by volunteers and supported by local and nationwide sponsors. It’s primary purposes are to educate the local community on WordPress and related web technologies, and to offer a great networking opportunity with web professionals.

This is our NINTH WordCamp. It’s hard to believe it’s been almost a decade since we started. We have not confirmed dates, but we are aiming for the general time as WordCamp Miami 2016 (which was February 19-21, 2016).

About 850 people attended the last WordCamp. We expect similar numbers for 2017. It takes a lot of work to organize such an event. And that’s where you come in.

We are looking for people to join the WCMIA Organization Team. Not just to help with making this even great and organized, but we want to make sure our team has a unified by DIVERSE voice. Minority voices are vital for any strong organization, especially one that serves South Florida.

Everyone is busy, but if you think you can spare a few hours helping out with organization, we would love to see you become part of the team. We would love to see past WordCamp Miami volunteers step up to help or become part of the organization team, but if you’ve been a frequent or a familiar face to any of our meetups that’s also great.

Right now, we are lacking in organizational help. So please spread the word. Our next meetup is September 1st in Davie (http://www.meetup.com/SF-WordPress-Users/events/233511138/) so please come by if you have any questions.

You can email us at miami@wordcamp.org or send us a note at https://2016.miami.wordcamp.org/contact/.

Thank you! See you soon at our next meetup!
