WCKTM 2017: The Organizing Team is Finalized

With mere 3 months remaining for WordCamp Kathmandu 2017, the preparations are going on in full swing. Earlier this morning, the organizing team was finalized in what was the first Organizers’ meeting for WCKTM 2017. DevotePress was present during the meeting when the organizers for each section of WordCamp Kathmandu 2017 were finalized.

Who are the Organizers?

Organizers are what make each WordCamp unique. Organizing a WordCamp is a volunteer labor (a lot of labor!) of love for WordPress and the local WordPress community. Each organizer earns untold karma points on their path to WordPress nirvana. No specific skills or backgrounds are required to become an organizer, though events tend to be most successful when responsibility is shared among several co-organizers.

The following people were selected as ‘Wranglers’ for the various aspects of organizing and managing the WordCamp.

  1. Lead Organizer and Sponsor WranglerYam Bahadur Chhetri
  2. Speaker WranglerUtsav Singh Rathour, Biplab Subedi
  3. Venue WranglerSurendra Shrestha
  4. Budget & Finance WranglerSweta Shrestha
  5. Volunteer WranglerSachet Gurung
  6. Print WranglerRakesh Lawaju
  7. Media & Internet WranglerSuvash Khadka and Arjun Singh Thakuri

  9. Website WranglerBezil Shrestha
  10. Community Wrangler Roshan Bhattarai
  11. Design WranglerPravash Karki, Raj Kumar Tamang
  12. Audio and Video WranglerShiva Shanker Bhatta

There are a lot more than the dozen jobs above to be taken care of in WordCamp Kathmandu 2017. Now that the organizing team has been officially decided, the groundwork and provisions for the next WordCamp to become successful are well under way. We are hopeful for WordCamp Kathmandu 2017 to be one of the best WordCamps ever organized in the country.
