  • Please check-in each day of WordCamp KC. This helps us get an accurate attendance each day and plan for next year
  • Just give your name to check-in
  • Please sit toward the front of the room at your WordCamp KC session. This shows respect for the speaker – remember, they’re volunteering their time and expertise for free – and it leaves the back of the room open for late-comers to not disturb the ongoing session

  • Please check-in at each WordCamp KC party… especially if you want free food and/or drink!
