WordCamp Cape Town 2018 – call for organisers

UPDATE: Thanks to everyone who applied, applications are now closed. 

It’s that time again, (well a bit later than last year, but anyway) where I reach out to our amazing local WordPress community and ask you to help me organise our annual WordCamp in Cape Town.

Last year was an awesome event and, bar a few mistakes in planning on my part, was well received by all who attended. This year I want to take the lessons learned from last year and improve on the event, by taking a step back.

My focus this year will be on a ‘leaner’ event, with more of a focus on WordPress and the attendees and less of a focus on the ‘flashiness’ of the event location or the catering. That is not to say that we don’t want a great event or nice food to eat, but it will not be our primary focus this year.

I want to bring WordCamp Cape Town back to it’s WordPress roots, with my main goal to be a focus on accessibility. I want to make this years event as accessible as possible to anyone from any walk of life, age or background.

As such, I also want to encourage folks from all walks of life to be part of the organising team. If you look at the team photo above you’ll see a trend, and I want to break from that trend this year. Being part of the organising team is a great way to get involved in the local community and I would love to see more diversity in the organising team for 2018.

If this is something that you are keen to be a part of, then please join me by filling in the form on the Organisers page on the WordCamp Cape Town 2018 site.

Thanks
