Help plan next year's LibrePlanet conference by joining the LP2014 planning committee!
LibrePlanet is an annual conference of the Free Software Foundation, drawing about 250 developers, lawyers, and computer users from around the country and the world. One of the greatest strengths of the free software movement is its robust sense of community, and we rely heavily on the support of volunteers to help plan the conference and get the word out, both online and through word of mouth.
The volunteer committee will meet monthly to plan the logistics of next year's conference, such as advising on the program, assisting with outreach efforts, helping plan social events, and putting to use whatever skills you would like to share.
There are several perks to volunteering. Volunteers will be able to attend LibrePlanet 2014 for free, will be publicly recognized, and will be making a significant contribution to making this conference even bigger and better than the last.
The first meeting will be in the FSF office (51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA) on Monday, October 21, 2013 at 6:30pm (22:30 UTC), but there are many opportunities to get involved for those outside the Boston-area. Remote participants can attend the meeting by joining #libreplanet on Freenode at 6:30pm (22:30 UTC).
