Another way to contribute to CarpentryCon @ Home is by becoming a Regional Session Host. Because CarpentryCon @ Home sessions will be delivered remotely, we are looking for local community members to help host CarpentryCon @ Home sessions slated to take place at specific times. Here is a breakdown of timezones we have bundled up.
Introducing speakers at the start of their session in the online event
Recording the session after introducing the speaker(s)
Skimming through questions raised during the presentation and decide which ones to prioritise for the time slotted for Q&A
Preparing a set of summaries for the last 5 minutes of the call, explaining
where attendees can continue with discussions after the virtual session
what attendees can expect in the coming days i.e. - recording of the call will be released, for example, an invitation to collaborate on a post-session blog post or survey, etc
making sure the Code of Conduct is being followed during the online session.
The CarpentryCon @ Home Task Force will offer an orientation to regional hosts before the event begins.

To volunteer as a regional host, sign up here Google Doc signup; the timezones are organised in sheets. The task force will be in touch in late June to organise orientation sessions for the hosts and answer questions.
