Do you have what it takes?

If you would like to fill in the gaps and help organise a new region, or reboot one that may have slowed down, then please reply to this email and let us know. It is helpful if you have some experience in our community either as a speaker or other influence, but this is not a requirement. What we are looking for is individuals who have the time and motivation to organise a meeting every other month and engage with our speaker community to get them out to your area.

What are asking you to commit to for 2018?

  • Minimum 2, maximum 3 leaders per region
  • Minimum 5 meetings per year
  • 1 vendor night per year
  • Pre-set your dates at the beginning of the year (these can change based on speaker availability)
  • Organise your events, with speaker details, at least 5 weeks before the event (for newsletter coverage)
  • Spend a couple of hours per week in the community site forums asking or answering questions
  • Promote the user group and it’s events on social media
We know that 5 or 6 events a year and a vendor night is a big ask on time and money, which is why we now require a minimum of two leaders per region so that you can split the effort and we also realise that there is a cost implication and many leaders fund the events themselves. If you are not in a position to fund all the events (through a local supporter) then we have some money available to assist you, hence the vendor nights. This is their “only” payback for assisting with some funding for events.

I’m game, what do I do

If you would like to fill in the gaps and help organise a new region, or reboot one that may have slowed down, then please get in touch with Mark Stokes via the forums.
