Call for Speakers

Drupal GovCon brings together people from all over the country who use, develop, design, and support the Drupal platform with a focus in government. Although there is a focus on government, there is also a heavy representation of attendees from the private, non-profit, and education sectors as well.

Drupal GovCon is the heartbeat of the DC Drupal community. We come together for three days every year, to learn, improve, and innovate as a community. Drupal GovCon will feature a full schedule of educational, contribution, and networking opportunities.

We are starting speaker notifications (9/22). 

They go out in waves and will go out through mid next week with all speakers to be notified of final status no later than Friday of next week. 

Speaker Notification Process:

  1. Multiple sessions ranked high. 
  2. Sessions ranked high. 
  3. 2nd group of high ranks
  4. Alternates

With nearly 70 sessions to be selected, it takes our team of volunteers time to notify speakers while also coordinating the schedule.
