We're currently up to 20 members. Not bad, but less than I'd hoped. Spread the word. I'll zap a msg to general-ooc.
I haven't heard from Jer Brown, US ANC Communities, since setting up the community and getting his okay to start things up. I also didn't see anything from Communities on this month's US NC report (Camarilla communities fall under the US NC). I'll follow up. I also need to check to see what additional resources we can get, such as website, etc.
I've sent a request through (hopefully) proper channels to get a Cam-Pride email list set up on the Camarilla servers.
I've contacted the OOC Programming Lead at ICC to check whether we could get some space for a meet & greet.
Scott sent a msg to Sodom-by-Night, the non-Cam-sorta'-Cam YahooGroup precursor to Cam-Pride, letting them know that we're setting up shop again. Thanks, Scott! Also, Daniel mentioned another previous Cam-Pride Yahoogroup that I haven't been able to locate.
The following conventions are coming up: NERE (Portland, 8/25-28), NWRE (Portland, 9/8-11), and ICC (Phoenix, 10/27-30). I plan to attend the latter two, so come up and say, "hi!" (I look like the LJ User Picture, only not quite so blue.) Currently, the only Cam-Pride plans I'd really like to push through are the Meet & Greet at ICC. If folks want to hold some other events or activities, whether it be at these conventions or not, let me know and I'll do what I can to help out. Some ideas that have been tossed out are parties, daytrips outside of con-space, raffles, t-shirts (if we get a logo, I'll ask WW if we can take advantage of their discount t-shirt rates), and badges.
I'll be sending something like this out to the group (and eventually the list) a few days before the 1st, then send a formalized report with your feedback to Jer Brown, ANC Communities, on the 1st. So, if you have any advice, suggestions, questions: please let me know.
