Budget and Registration

Registration: 61 people have registered. The conference is not capped at 75 as mentioned earlier. A new type of registration has been added: conference only, no room or board, and a sliding scale for that has been set at $100-$175.

Compassion In Action as a leaderful event

Jane will send out some paragraphs to offer some more detail about what that would mean to the current model of open space facilitated event. We'll discuss it again at the next meeting.

Support for those wanting connection and not getting it

Ideas for supporting people at the conference who aren't feeling connected will be presented at the next meeting using a process discussed after this May 21st meeting:

  • Lisa will send out an email to the Yahoogroups list, to seed a collection of ideas
  • Jane, Lisa, and Meta plan a phone call for May 31 at 4PDT, 5MDT, 6 CDT, 7EDT. If you are interested in that call, please let Jane know.
  • A distilled list will be presented at the June 3 meeting.

How to share what happens?

  • John mentioned software for simultaneous collaborative writing
  • Kit has a form from Gina about scribing what happened, and will/has sent a copy to John for him to post in the Yahoogroups area.
  • Rick will check with Mill College Tech folks to see if we can get wireless access
  • Rick will send out what he's learned about from a non-profit and technology group in San Fran.

Transportation tips

These were mentioned, so they've been added to the FAQ:

  • closest airport: Oakland (OAK)
  • if flying into SFO: take BART (www.bart.gov) to Oakland


Rick missed what was said about the shirts, except that Mary sent Kit the files for the latest logo?

Another group had asked about selling T-shirts with proceeds funding scholarship to their NVC events. There was no objection and even extension to anyone selling -- creating a marketplace.
