First Planning Meeting
July 28, 2009
2:00pm to 3:00pm
Cary's Barnes and Noble (directions here)
Goals for this first planning meeting include: We expect to determine exactly when the "unconference" will be held,although we are concentrating on the First Friday in November. We also will decide who is going to "tie" down the location, work on sponsors, set up website, manage the PR and Twitter, round up "Thought Leaders," create a contact system for the planners, establish meeting times and distribute information about the event that can be taken to local offices.
WE WANT A LARGE GROUP OF PLANNERS... this is a departure from other Barcamps that had as few as 4 to 5 people doing the planning with a host of volunteers on the day of the event. Our HOPE is that by including many people, we will grow a grassroots interest in the event. Our Goal is 300 people in attendance.
There is a high level conversation as to wheather the name of the event should change. If you would like to get more information about that conversation, please click here.
