Day 1: Day of Shecurity Registration Opens
Wow, literally, just.... wow! We had an amazing day today as registration opened! As of the last time I checked, we are almost at capacity in less than 24 hours! I don't think anyone expected such an amazing turnout but we're collectively all happy that you've chosen to join us for what we believe will be an amazing event. There were a number of things I wanted to mention after the first day of registration because there were a few hiccups:
- T-Shirt Sizes: For those of you who either did not or were not able to supply a t-shirt size, we will be contacting you to correct that. Everyone attending WILL get a t-shirt.
- The Wait List IS NOT Purgatory: As I'm typing this, registrations are still coming in strong. Therefore, if you do not make the 200 attendee cutoff and are put on the wait list, fear not! Our wait list is exactly that: a WAIT list. Please refer to our Event Day policy for additional details on how we are handling the wait list. Additionally, the best way for you to find out about Day of Shecurity 2019 is by registering this year!
- The Start Time WILL Shift By an Hour: So I need to beg your forgiveness upfront. Being a former East Coaster, I'm used to starting work/events early. Unfortunately, I'm continually reminded that "early" in California is not the same as "early" in Philadelphia. Therefore, we will be shifting the start time from 7:30AM to 8:30AM. All other slot times and positions will remain exactly the same. Please bear with us while we apply these changes across several sites and documents. They should all be made by the end of the week.
- Slack Invites Will Go Out Every Night at 11PM: I will be sending these out tonight at around 11PM. If for some reason, you do not get an invite, please ping us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to ask us! Thank you so much for making the first day of registration so exciting. On behalf of the entire Day of Shecurity Core Team, we thank you and welcome you to the beginning of something truly epic. Together, we CAN make a difference.
