Call for Speakers

We are excited to officially open our call for speakers for WordCamp Omaha 2016!

If you would like to help make WordCamp great, check out what we’re looking for below and then submit your talk ideas. We look forward to hearing from you!

What speakers need to have:

  • A love of WordPress
    It is a conference about WordPress, after all. While we are looking for a wide variety of topics, please make sure your submission is in some way relevant to WordPress.
  • A love of the community
    WordCamps are all about giving back. Our speakers, organizers and volunteers are not compensated for their time or expenses, so it would be best if you want to give back!
  • A love of your topic
    More than that, really… you need passion and experience to really get your point across. Regardless of why you love your chosen topic, we love that you love it!
  • A love of speaking
    We don’t require previous speaking experience … but you will be presenting to a large group of your peers, and will be recorded for WordPress TV.
  • A love of the GPL
    If you distribute WordPress-derivative works, your users should enjoy the same freedoms that WordPress itself provides. In other words, your products should be 100% GPL or compatible.

Overall, we’re looking for a diverse group of WordPress enthusiasts from Omaha and across the country (or even the globe!) who want to share their expertise, experiences and passion.

How to apply

Interested? Fill out the form below.

If you’d like to propose multiple topics, please submit the form multiple times, once for each topic.
