We're back!

Back in April, I started talking with Wes Contreras, US National Coordinator, about revitalizing the Cam-Pride community. He suggested I hang on until he hired a new ANC Communities. So, now Jer Brown has filled that role, and Wes was good enough to point Jer in my direction for this project.

For those of you who don't know me, my name is Chuck Childers. I've held several positions in the Camarilla, and I'm currently AAMST Settings: Forsaken. I've been a member of the Camarilla since 1995, and I was also a member of the first iteration of Cam-Pride. Outside of the club, I have a job as an IT Manager at a Market Research firm in Portland, OR. I've lived in Portland for just over a year. While I miss living in Seattle terribly, Portland's a beautiful place to live.

Since I have some pretty significant time constraints - both workwise and for the Camarilla - I'd only be able to get the ball rolling and then hand a (hopefully) viable community over to someone else. However, I'm comfortable handling the community liaison duties until the end of the year, at least. Some community activities I'd like to pursue include:

* A LiveJournal community (done!)
* A Cam-Pride email list on official Camarilla mail servers
* Events (daytrips, parties) at regional cons & ICC
* Creation of some identifying spiffage (badges, t-shirts, sum'n)
* Recruitment of volunteers to run the community in my absence

If you have a moment, take a look at the info page for this journal. Please let me know if you'd like any changes. Also, our current LiveJournal customization & style is rather dull. If someone wants to redesign our LJ to better reflect the community, feel free.

Currently, membership in Cam-Pride is moderated, limited to Camarilla members only. Should we open it up? I'm amenable to having an open and welcoming community, but I also realize the convenience (and occasional necessity) of having a safe place to discuss concerns and issues.
