Re: Call for volunteers on GUADEC

Hi all,

We have several people contact us to show their interests in building a GUADEC organizing committee.
To build a core and stable committee, the most important things we need but we don't have yet are:
1. Regular IRC meeting
2. Wiki page for GUADEC committee.
3. Road-map and planning schedule

We already have a page for GUADEC : , but we need to create a page for GUADEC committee. We can add below sections to this page:
Introduction about GUADEC
Introduction about GUADEC committee
Committee members
What committee members are working on
Useful Documents
Meeting Minutes

I just update the wiki and create Committee members wiki to build a core team from scratch.  We can add more members once they step in and join us. It would be great if anyone of you can help on building this wiki page for GUADEC committee.

We are calling for more volunteers and help now.

Hi all,

The GNOME Foundation has recently sent out a call for bids for hosting GUADEC 2012 [1]. We are also calling for volunteers to help with organizing GUADEC.  You can help regardless of where you might be located.

We would like to setup both a GUADEC event committee and also a local team of volunteers on the ground at the event location. It would be very much appreciated if people with experience hosting past GUADEC events could get involved and help make this event a success.

Even if the local team changes every GUADEC, there would be value having a core and stable event committee to ensure good planning going forward for GUADEC 2012 and future GUADEC events.
The GUADEC committee can help things on:
  • Manage call for bids, including helping with review selection
  • Build the website infrastructure including a registration system and use it for every GUADEC 
  • Draft call for sponsorship, call for paper documents etc
  • Share Sponsors' contact
  • Have regular meetings (usually IRC) with the local team once the bid is chosen
  • Focus on continually improving the process, including post-event reports.
  • The event committee would help with international sponsorship opportunities while the local team would likely focus more on local sponsorship opportunities.
  • Art design 
  • Other

If you would like to help volunteer and organize GUADEC by being a part of a GNOME event committee, then please step us and let us know. We are open to any suggestions and discussion. We enourage you to use GUADEC-list [2] mail list and #guadec IRC channel at for more discussion.
