Starting a new Chapter: FAQs
Local Devenings events are run by passionate volunteer hosts and their teams. We work closely with every host, so there is a formal application process to start an official chapter in your city.
Devenings offers an opportunity to bring together your local developer community, connect what’s going on in your city with the broader dev world, and join a network of talented organizers that spans across Pakistan.
Are there any costs/fees associated with running a chapter?
Chapters usually cover their event costs primarily through local sponsors. There are no application fees, upfront fees or ongoing fees to headquarters. All local sponsorship money stays with the chapter. Our chapters help sustain headquarters by participating in HQ’s partnership initiatives from time to time.
Do hosts sign a license agreement?
Each host signs a license agreement in order to represent the Devenings brand and agrees that all content created as a result of a Devenings event is property of Devenings. The license agreement lasts for 12 months and is renewable.
Can there be co-hosts?
Yes. We require ONE point of contact for each chapter who serves as the face of that location but we ask that you nominate a co-host to support you behind the scenes. This way if illness, travel, or any number of life’s surprises prevents you from hosting one month, you have a solid back up. You’re free to organize your team as you see fit, but only one person can be the official host.
Can my company or group apply to be a host?
No. Devenings’ chapters are licensed to individuals. In many instances, a host’s company supports their employee (e.g.committing to long-term sponsorship/resources). But at the end of the day our official relationship is with the individual, and if that person leaves his/her current company, the chapter would remain with that person.
Can there be more than one Devenings chapter per city?
No. We stick with one per city.
Can I reach out to potential sponsors, venues or speakers before applying?
Yes. Committed sponsors, venues and speakers is a great way to strengthen your application. However, please be clear and explain that you do not officially represent Devenings and are applying for a license to start a chapter.
