DrupalCamp London is a registered Community Interest Company run by a team of 8 people. For next years event we're looking for people who want to learn how we plan and organise the event who will then be able to take on responsibility for organising the event in future (with our guidance).
How we work
Each of the eight committee members take on responsibility for various aspects of the camp, meeting regularly and communicating updates. For larger decisions a vote is taken with a majority needed to approve the decision (with a minimum 50% needed to vote). Financial decisions need a vote and sign off from the company directors due to liability reasons.
Planing usually starts in September with monthly meetings, converting to weekly in January until the camp weekend.
Six of the committee members are volunteers who donate their time and expertise to organise and run the camp.
For the next camp your main role will be carrying out assigned tasks and learning how the camp is organised/run. Ideally each member of the committee will have an understudy to learn their role, however duties can (and often do) overlap in order to ensure the camp is as successful as the last 7 years and continues to be so. You'll be able to get involved, offer your input and ideas on how the camp is run and help improve it to be even better.
Taking on understudies will be a big change for us, and whilst we complete the transition we will need to learn and adapt how we work.
The role is non-paid, though some expenses may be paid.
- 1hr meetings (via hangout/in person. Monthly until Jan, then weekly until the event)
- Ad hoc time to complete tasks
- Thurs evening before the camp for setup.
- Fri-Sun over the camp 7/8am - 6pm each day.
Depending on the role you take your tasks may differ. Below are a list of some of our combined tasks we undertake when organising the camp. When applying please reference which tasks you would suit your skills/abilities.
- Communicating with attendees (email/Twitter/mailchimp).
- Communicating with potential and confirmed sponsors.
- Communicating with speakers (keynotes, cxo, and session)
- Leading volunteers and organising volunteer duties over the weekend
- Updating and maintaining the website (UX, backend, frontend)
- Creating and updating site content

- Designing materials used for the camp (t-shirts, tote bags, banners, etc)
