When you love your community, you want to see it grow and become stronger. And if you are also lucky enough to have a little extra time and enthusiasm? Well, then it might be time to run an event. Many FOSS projects have been down this path, so you won't need to start from scratch. This talk will cover:

* Setting the scope for your event
* How to find folks to work with
* Creating a plan for success
* Making sure attendees have a great time

Once you have a solid plan in place, running a community event can be very rewarding. Attendees will walk away with a checklist and a strategy for finding the resources they'll need to put on an inspiring community event.
