Each Event Manager is usually in charge of a number of groups, and their job is to:

  • Assess and approve new host applications.

  • Provide support and answer questions from hosts.

  • Assist hosts to choose event themes, plan, and schedule dates.

  • Make sure each event has everything in place before it goes live.

  • Resolve scheduling issues between hosts.

  • Troubleshoot technical issues.

  • Promote each event to group members.

  • Answer questions from group members.

  • Develop a sense of community among group members.

  • Ask for feedback on potential event ideas from members.

    Please note that event managers are unable to provide support via Phone or Zoom due to the number of groups they manage. They are also unable to meet in person as they are based all around the world!

  • Host often are events held?
    Hosts are encouraged to run at least one event every 3 months.

    Apart from that there is flexibility to run events whenever you like, however weekend mornings at 10am are usually preferred as that is when most people are available.

    The maximum events a group runs is usually one per week, however it depends on the number of group members and demand which can also be seasonal. The usual cadence is one event every 2 weeks.

    For groups with multiple hosts, the organiser will assist with scheduling to avoid conflicts and to make sure the right number of events are being run for the level of demand.
