WordCamp Chicago is in 2 weeks, and they need your help! The organizers are looking for additional sponsors so that they’ll have enough money to cover the budget. Even when everything is done by volunteers, big WordCamps cost a pretty penny. They’re looking for more volunteers, too. :)
Of course, they also want more people to buy tickets! This is the biggest WordCamp scheduled in the midwest for awhile, so if you’re from a central state, why not take a weekend trip to Chicago and check it out? Maybe it will inspire you to start a WordPress meetup in your own town, and organize your own WordCamp someday!
