+We are very happy and humbled that EmacsConf has been received so well
+by Emacsians all around the world and it's been growing! Last year
+EmacsConf 2020 saw a ~30% increase in number of talks and had more
+than double the participants and viewers compared to EmacsConf 2019,
+and we are hopeful that it keeps on growing and reaching more Emacs
+users and enthusiasts.
+
+As EmacsConf keeps on growing, it would need more volunteers and
+organizers to help make it the awesome conference that it is and make
+it even better each year, and we would love to have your help for
+that!
+
+** Help review EmacsConf proposal submissions

+This year, we are inviting interested community members to help review
+talk proposal submissions as part of the selection committee
+previously consisting only of EmacsConf organizers. If you are
+interested in helping review this year's session proposals, please
+write to one of the [[https://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/emacsconf-org][emacsconf-org]] or [[https://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/emacsconf-org-private][emacsconf-org-private]] mailing
