Planning an event

We are always interested in ideas for new events. It could be a presentation night on a particular topic, or a new kind of event altogether. Many of our current events were first proposed by members.

To start planning an event:

  1. Join us in the #organizing channel in our Slack workspace. Start a conversation along the lines of ā€œIā€™m thinking about XYZ,ā€ and get a discussion going about what shape the event could take.

  2. Find a leader to pair with in the planning process. They can help think of all the things to consider, find other people to brainstorm with, and then get the event officially listed on Jon, Emily, James, or Ned are good possibilities.

  3. Stay active in the discussions that happen in Slack. We plan collaboratively. Others will have helpful ideas or tips to make the event successful.
