The Community Team agreed on 12th December 2019 the following guidelines for establishing official Mautic groups within the Community.
All meetups, groups and events agree to abide by the Mautic Code of Conduct at all times.
These are the traditional kind of in-person meetups which are based in a region or a town. They are not to be created on a country-wide basis.
These events (commonly referred to as “meetups”, which can be confusing since people often use the same word to describe the group itself) might take many formats:
Existing groups can be brought into the official Mautic Meetup account by contacting the Community Manager. This will mean that the meetup.com fees will be covered by Acquia.
Official Mautic Meetup groups are also eligible for sponsorship by Acquia as part of their Community Meetup Sponsorship Programme - for example to cover the cost of food for a sprint event or to bring in a speaker who needs travel or accommodation.
These are an online variation of the traditional meetup. There are no restrictions on region, and they can span any geographic area.
These meetups will not have a Meetup group (as these must be physical meetups) however they will have a category created in the Mautic Meetups category on the forums through which members can find information and discuss any relevant issues.
Official online Mautic Meetups agree to the same general guidelines as physical meetups (see above).
Where there is a strong local presence, organizers may wish to create an informal regional event or conference, called a MautiCamp.
These will be regional in nature and organised with support of the Community Team.
There will be an annual MautiCon event which will bring together the international community for a formal conference.
The first such event is being planned for 2020.
It will be organised by the community and will be inviting sponsors to support the event. If you are interested in getting involved please join #mauticon on Slack.
