A group of local meetup, training and sprint organisers met for a Birds of a Feather session in Hobart to discuss how things have been working at a grassroots level and things we can consider to move things forward.

We ran a Bird's of a Feather session (BoF) during DrupalSouth Hobart that was attended by event organisers to discuss what’s been working well, pain points and ideas to enhance future conferences.

One of the first topics discussed was the concept that the volunteer event team should be focusing on higher level strategic issues like format, speaker selection, diversity and attendee and sponsor engagement. These are the critical things that drive a great experience at the conference, and to be honest, the fun things to be involved in as volunteers.

At DrupalSouth Hobart we ran the first ever Birds of a Feather (BoF) for Sponsors and Business Leaders. Attended by most of the sponsors present at the conference, the goal was to get feedback on the current sponsorship model and how this might be improved to better meet the needs of our commercial supporters. 

It was also an opportunity to openly discuss various issues being tackled by Drupal services companies and how these might be addressed by DrupalSouth as an independent member-funded organisation.
