State Of The Map/Planning
There are a lot of decisions and choices to make when planning State of the Map. This page will help to make those more transparent, saving the State of the Map working group time and hopefully providing inspiration to other event organisers.
We have current policies on the following topics:
- Vision (aim of the conference)
- Language guidelines
- Internal communications
- External communications
- Code of conduct
Whilst we work up our planners handbook, you may want to check out FOSS4G's.
Policies in progress
- Ticket purchases - Use the online portal. If you want an invoice to pay via bank transfer there is a 20EUR/10% (whichever is greatest) handling fee to be waived only in exceptional circumstances. The fee covers our admin costs and the foreign exchange fees we incur do to payments being converted in to GBP before entering our account. Exceptional circumstances includes when it is not possible to pay via the online system from your country but does not include idealistic preference not to use our chosen online payment portal.
