Events Organization: Best & Worst Practices[edit]

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

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


  • 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..)


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?

Specific requirements[edit]
