Second call asking for hosting proposals for the second OpenStack Operators
mid-cycle meetup of 2017 which will be in August and is currently planned
for somewhere in North America. All offers should be for two successive
business days (i.e fall with Monday-Friday).

To submit a proposal please just cut and paste the standard boilerplate
text in this etherpad and then fill in your answers:


More information on these meetings in general is given here :



This call is for a host for an event in August 2017. If a location and date
range could be found which allows attendees to attend a related event
before or after that is helpful for attendees to get the most out of their
travel budget. For example, open source and/or cloud and/or linux


Given our desire to rotate venues to balance travel fairly, this event
would be in North America
(The prior meet up of 2017 looks likely to be in Europe or APAC).


As host your organization(s) should book and help organize the venue, which
should meet the guidelines (e.g. having wifi, presentation facilities), see
How_Ops_Meetups_are_planned. Ideally any venue proposed would have one
large room (up to 120 people) and several smaller rooms (20-40 people).

Some hosts have been able to provide lunch and even breakfast but that is
not a requirement. Other organizations may underwrite an evening event
after day 1 (the host is not expected to).

Please note that we are currently seeking expressions of interest only, no
booking should be made until after the proposal is accepted (see below).


We (the team) meet regularly in an open publicized process (see

Proposals to host received in the above linked Etherpad will be considered
and collaborated on. If there are more than one for a particular meet up,
the proposals are voted on and the most popular suitable proposal is
accepted. Full meeting minutes and minutes are published at the end of each

If you have more questions: I will be happy to answer questions relating to
the process for hosting one of these events or you can simply join us on
IRC (#openstack-operators on chat.freenode.net)!

Thanks for reading
