Hey Arya! I am interested to volunteer for the event and I really like to be considered for the same. As I can see, you have closed the volunteer call, it would be great if you gave me a chance. Please reach out to me so that I can send you my details!

We had our first volunteer onboarding call

Minutes of the Meeting

Attendees: Arya, Abhishek, Ashish, Anas, Mangesh, Vikas, Utsavraj, Ruchika

Date: 11th Feb 2024

  • Attending volunteers were given another run-through of all the roles
  • Came to a conclusion that people whose volunteering was mostly online can take care of onground tasks (if they want to) like registration (and possibly city meetup volunteers who are attending)
  • Possibility of 1 or 2 long-form (45min-1hr) talks - Need to confirm with FOSS United Core team regarding the proposal
  • Discussion on a panel topic
  • Emphasis on reach out to female audience
  • Concluded that regarding waste management (for which we didn’t get any volunteers), we can probably rely on someone from the NGO, no need to have someone dedicated from our side
