[Lote4 tickets] Create and send the weekly community newsletter

I will design and send the community newsletter during x no of weeks ahead of Lote4.

Lote4 is a community event gathering individuals from across the globe: active members on Edgeryders, newcomers doing work on Stewardship, but also state level actors, politicians and policy makers. A series of newsletters are intended to keep everyone who is part of the conference updated: they include news on Lote4 speakers, case studies of collaboration, and conference preparations which are under way, as well as internal coordination: which tasks are most urgent and who needs help with what.

  • Value of task: 33% of the \#lote4 ticket (per newsletter sent)

How to complete this task?

Tell us in a comment you are taking this on, ideally starting the current week. Noemi will get in touch with you to give you access to the mailchimp list. Compose the newsletter and don’t forget to get in touch with the team coordinators to collect news from each and include them in the newsletter. Keep an eye on the Lote4 group to pick up on the latest that’s happening.

Send the newsletter no later than Friday evening/ Saturday morning each week.

Steps to get your Lote4 ticket

  1. By completing this task.

  2. Go to MakerFox.com and register there with the same username as the one you have here on Edgeryders. Now go ahead and order your Lote4 ticket.

  3. Wait to receive your ticket! Community members at Edgeryders will check how many tasks you’ve performed and it they add up to the value of a ticket, they’ll make sure to send it to you.

Still on for this?

Hi @Dorotea, yesterday you mentioned you’re up for helping with this…?

I created a new list in our Mailchimp account called “Lote4 community” - everyone who joined a team or claimed a task - circa 40 Edgeryders so far. You know your way in, remember last year Auli set up beautiful template which we could use again? and if you need help just check the advice in the task text.

I’ve also assigned 33% of the ticket to 1 newsletter, meaning about 5 hrs of work (1 lote ticket should be about 2 days of work). If it takes more let me know… we’re trying to improve the system and be as fair as possible with everyone putting in work time.

yes :slight_smile:

Call for participation: How to propose a session/ attaching visuals made by Pacheca, trying to remix some from here.

Next week’s newsletter:

Post #2. Day plan in Matera, trips and a chance to experience the unMonastery (coming up soon)

What do you think? missing anything? ping me tomorrow if you have a half hour…
