This is what the WordPress open source community is all about and a big part of why WordCamps were started in the first place.

Meet the WordCamp Asheville Organizers
WordCamp Asheville is an extension of the local Asheville WordPress Meetup group. After attending WordCamp Atlanta in 2013, several of the Meetup group’s attendees came together as a local planning committee and decided that Western North Carolina needed their own event. After much hard work and a lot of help, WordCamp Asheville was born.
