The Events department held its monthly  meeting where the following items were discussed.


Main topic of discussion was around the  new rules to allow Virtual user groups, the rules have been drafted,  Joomla user group rules for submission will be updated on the Joomla documentation website. Joomla user groups who already meet in person, can hold meetings online, some of them started with online streaming of their meetings about 3 years ago.

  • Creating a new section on the JUG directory, to list Joomla! virtual user groups. 

  • Sending out a newsletter to inform and encourage the user groups to organize online meetups.


Some of the scheduled JoomlaDays have been cancelled due to the COVID-19 crisis, we really hope that the situation will get better soon, stay safe!


Next meeting will take place on April  22 2020 at 18:00 pm UTC on Google meet.
