GOSH 2022 - Core Team Potential Volunteers

Hi! Andy from the new Gosh Community Council here! We are scrambling fast as the council to address a lot of our challenges as a new council to get decisions made, and funding structures created! And of course one of the targets most near and dear to our hearts is THE NEXT GOSH GLOBAL GATHERING!

In order to put on a GOSH 2022 Global Gathering, we will need to assemble a Core Organizing team that will be in charge of organizing the Logistics, Programming, Local partnerships, Fundraising, Sponsorships, Communications, Participant Selection, and event facilitation! The general plan would be to get started organizing now to put on a Global event sometime in August-December 2022.

**** Right now we simply want to informally survey who in the community might have the availability to help join the core organizing team. If you think you would be able to help with this project, please add your name to the form below****

Some additional points:

  • Diversity of participants is what makes GOSH events special, and we strive to have the core organizing committee reflect this. We will have an emphasis on organizers ensuring underrepresented groups have a place in organizing this large event, with an intentional mix of of international and gender balanced participation. This is why there are also optional questions on this survey about demographic information (adapted from http://open-demographics.com/ )

  • These positions are unpaid. The core organizing team is an entirely volunteer service.

  • This, in no way, should be thought of as a direct sign up sheet for organizing this event, we are simply gauging the availability of people in our community.

  • Also note that Covid-19 has the potential to shut down or drastically alter any plans we try to make

Thanks for your help!

If you are potentially interested in joining the core team, please add your name to this form!

A common question could be: “But WHERE will GOSH 2022 happen?”

That’s a great question! and the answer is, WE DON’T KNOW! It’s up to you all! In putting together this working group, we are also looking for a regional host! So that’s part of this search as well!
