I’ve had many people asking me when planning for WordCamp STL 2016 was going to start lately. Well, I’m excited to say it officially kicks off right now! The first step in getting a WordCamp up and running is getting the organizing team together. If you are interested in helping us make #WCSTL16 awesome, fill out the form below and we will be in touch. As in the past, we plan on having weekly organizer Google Hangouts and asking that organizers do their best to attend one of the two monthly STL WordPress meetups so we can have some face-to-face discussions.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to me via email or twitter. For more information about the organizing team, you can checkout WordCamp Central’s page on the topic.
You must be a member of the site to fill out an organizer response.
We’ve had two great partners for the last few years that have graciously hosted our meetups. Lab1500 and Integrity have hosted our General and Developer meetups respectively in the past, but will not be going forward. Both locations have shifting priorities and we wish them the best in their future endeavors. We want to take a moment and thank them both for being gracious and giving us the space to meet – with no cost – for as long as they have.
Starting with our General meetup next Wednesday, October 21 we’ll be meeting at a new location. The Cambridge Innovation Center (CIC) will be our new host for the foreseeable future. They’re located a little further West than Lab1500 and their space is gorgeous. Parking is street-level with no meters!
Moving forward our Developer meetup that has been meeting at Integrity will now be merging with our WordPress West meetup at OPO Startups in St. Charles. This means that our dev meetup is now happening on the 4th Monday of the month and at a new location much farther West than it has been in the past. The next meetup is scheduled for Monday, October 26th.
We know that changes like this have an impact on our community and attendance to our events. We hope you can continue to join us monthly to learn about WordPress and all it can offer. If you have any feedback or suggestions, please get in touch. If you would like to host another WordPress meetup, please contact us!
