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.

If you have questions about this event - especially the PLANNING STAGES, please contact Eleanor Thorne at 919-649-5057, or Pamela St. Peter at  919-645-2522.

Hi there! Now I know more about your REBC. Thanks for nudging me. I've been reading about the Bar issue but geeze, my feeling is, get over it. Who cares? ;-)

Do I really have a choice in this?  You know I will be there and will help however I can.  Now I have read up about the BAR issue - you're kidding, right?

Eleanor - could you use some "virtual" help? I'd love to get involved, and a drive to Raleigh to attend the event is definitely doable.

Great post Eleanor!  We sure do WANT A LARGE GROUP OF PLANNERS!!   This is so un-conventional but does work!  It works because many minds coming together bring great energy!  Look forward to meeting everyone Tuesday!

Hi, I am so glad I stopped by as I will definitely plan on attending.  Please keep us posted!  Even though you are not that far I have never been to Raleigh and can't wait!
