Events Organization: Best & Worst Practices[edit]

Name(s) and/or username(s)[edit]

Ellie Young User:EYoung (WMF)
Wikimedia Foundation, Events Manager

Topic[edit]

  • Real world events organization (editathons, meetings, camps, conferences, wiki expeditions)


Type of submission (Please choose one)[edit]

  • Presentation (one-to-many) (I may ask other event organizers in the community who are attending to participate..)


Summary[edit]

With over 30 years in organizing various types of events for the open culture communities, Ellie will share her experiences. Besides the best and worst practices, I will endeavor to share lessons learned in event planning and strategy, and how you can scale/leverage .... I also think WMF would benefit greatly by my listening and discussing events/activities with this important segment of our community. (I will sort this summary/description out a bit more when I have had more time... just now finishing up Wikimania :-)

Expected outcomes[edit]

To help facilitate event planning and organization for community affiliates and members.

Duration (without Q&A)[edit]

20-30 minutes?
