Any MLC community member can host an event! Here are rough steps you may wish to follow. Events and advertising for them must follow the Code of Conduct.

Before the event[edit]

  • Make a page for your event (on this wiki or anywhere else); feel free to use the MLC logo if helpful
  • Add the event to the MLC calendar. For access: How to add a calendar event
  • Publicize the event via any of several channels:
    • Post about it on Twitter. Link to a page with info about the event, including how people can join and when it will be. You can tag @ml_collective and someone managing our Twitter handle will retweet your tweet.
    • Post in the #events-mlc channel on Discord
    • Post in the relevant geographical channel (those starting with g-, for example, g-nyc) on Discord
    • Advertise via any of your own channels (email lists, Facebook, etc).

Host the event[edit]

  • (optional) Record the event if you want (but first ask permission from people).
  • (optional) Take notes
  • (optional) Report back top 3 things learned

After the event[edit]

  • (optional) Post video recording
  • (optional) Post pictures
  • (optional) Post notes on wiki or elsewhere

MLC funding for events[edit]

If you are hosting an in-person event that costs money, MLC can likely sponsor it! The requirements for MLC to sponsor an event are:

  • Follow the above process
  • The event must be open for all to attend and the invite must be posted somewhere publicly (e.g. we cannot sponsor private lunches for you and two of your friends)
  • MLC will sponsor up to $20 per person who attends the event. After the event, please just send a receipt and list of who attended to our receipts email address (receipts at this domain name)
  • If venue needs to be pre-paid, contact and we will review on a case-by-case basis

Encouraged but not required:

  • Post photos of your event!
  • Take notes, post the notes, post anything you learned in Discord
  • Have fun! (actually this is required)
