Meeting Agenda 14:00 16 January 2015
- Review Requirements to be an Co-Organizer:
- Join the organizer meetings. Those on the call are now co-organziers. Co-organizers that consistently don't show up will be slated to be removed. Sean will make an effort to reach out before removal. I have started to do this with mixed results. I will continue removing sponsors and co-organizers not involved.
- If you want to hold an event, then Sean will make you the owner of an event. If you want to create other events, then you must be active in the organizer meetings.
- we held 35 events last year 35 * $500 = $17,500, including one birthday event $55K
- so our target should be $72K total
Overview Sponsorship spots are first come, first served We will need a (1) gold and (1-2) silver sponsor(s) for each event If you provide the venue, food, and beverage, then you are the event gold sponsor If you provide $250, then you are one of the two silver event sponsors. Most of the costs will be to cover the annual OpenStack Birthday party. The Birthday event will be different than above, Year Gold or Sliver sponsors will be listed as sponsors of the Birthday event Other per Birthday event sponsors could be added if we need to cover more costs We will decide during a meeting if the cost estimates need to be adjusted Organizer (Sean) or Treasurer (Dave) will distribute money to cover event costs. Desired to require both Organizer and Treasurer approval to distribute mone, but logistics may not work. Desired to have all sponsors with view access of account (maybe paypal?) Treasurer (Dave) will post to the agenda amounts distributed during monthly meetings Treasurer (Dave) will gather money from sponsors
Costs: year gold 10 * $5K = $50K year silver 10 * $2.5K = $25K event gold (one per event): $500 per event (or provide the venue, food, and beverage) event silver (one to two per event): $250 per event
Benefits: year gold: you get logo on the top of sponsorship page (alpha order) year silver: you get logo on the bottom of sponsorship page (alpha order). you need to gold sponsor one event. Must be scheduled at time of sponsorship. per event sponsorship gold event: name at top of description field silver event: name at top of description field (just below gold event sponsor)
- any other business

- On OpenStack wiki there is a: How to run a user group page written by Sean.

- Collaborate with other events, such as DevOpsDays Mountain View
- “What’s happening in OpenStack” session. Vendors would love to give these updates

- Join the meeting https://vmware.webex.com/vmware/k2/j.php?MTID=t351a446a50958c81fdfb3de7454170c5
- Should we have requirements to be a sponsor?
- Sean's idea: In order to have your logo on the sponsors page, you/your company is required a nominal $1K annual fee OR manage at least one event per year
- Should we have requirements to be an organizer?
- An organizer can create, edit, and delegate events to an Event Host.
- Sean's idea: Organizers should be active. Either you manage one event per year or give up your Organizer designation. New Organizers/Co-Organizers can only be set by a majority vote of the existing Organizers.
- What is the OpenStack Ambassadors group?
- User group leaders from around the world and representing regions like the Western US or Eastern Europe. Sean will explain a bit more and answer any questions.
- Should we have a regular schedule for certain types of events and if so how do we fill them?
