5. Rick will contact John Abbe regarding possible web site for conference and Rick will begin developing a wiki-style site
6. Lisa has begun developing a flyer for the conference and will send it to the group for feedback by Sat Mar 25. Jane agreed to take the flyer, even if it's in draft, to the Northeast Leaderful gathering and ask people to consider attending and/or to share the info with their respective communities.
7. Kit visited Mills College-she's waiting for a revised contract to know if there's a request for support re needing money upfront. Rick and Kit will partner on coming up with a detailed budget and recommendations regarding scholarships and report back to the group Apr 18.
8. Kit asked if people would help to identify someone who would enjoy supporting the conference, either by underwriting the event, or by contributing for scholarships. Rick was going to check with his company. Kit will mention this again at future meetings. Current budget includes cost of venue, materials, Gina's fee and some take away item, like a t-shirt
9. Rick agreed to contact Sandy Heierbach at the National Coalition for Dialogue and Deliberation, an organization Miki Kashtan is connected with, regarding organizine a conference using all volunteers, and how best to disseminate learnings from an event to a broader network.
10. Kit asked for ideas re how to share what happens at the conference. Other open space events she's been to has been to have used scribes in the various groups to record major discussion points and key learnings that were put on computers there at the conference, that a compilation of the learnings from the gathering was made during the event itself. Wondered about doing that and what other ideas there are... Rick suggested contact journalism schools to get scribes Kit wondered about having video cams at the event, using participatory video to record Kit will ask Gina and Matthew Bloom (a local open space facilitator) for ideas. Discussed possibly using some money from the event to have someone work before, during and after to think through and operationalize ideas for sharing. Kit hopes for a creative mix of photos, written accounts, audio and video recordings of the event on a website.
