VIDEO CHAT SUPPORT TOMORROW, Tuesday 1/28 Yes, that's right: Tomorrow from 3:00-3:30 PM EST, there will be a video chat in which NN staff will answer your questions about submitting proposals for panels, trainings, and screenings. Here's the latest from Nolan Treadway, Logistics and Political Director for Netroots Nation:
We're doing it on google hangout and the link is here:If you can't make this hangout session tomorrow, there will be another one on Wednesday, Feb. 5. The link for the second hangout can be found here.
You should be able to watch it regardless of having a login but I believe you'll need to have a google+ account to ask a question.
SPECIAL NN14 REGISTRATION PROMO through Feb. 15 to support local scholarships
If you have not yet registered for NN14, here is a great opportunity to get a good rate and to do good, too. This is the word from Carolyn Dulchinos, NN development associate:
For every person who registers at the current activist or org rate now thru February 15, we'll set aside $50 of the registration fee for the scholarship program.The goal is to boost the scholarship fund to permit more local activists to attend, something I think we can all support. So don't wait--register here now!
LOCAL PANEL PLANNING STILL ONGOING through Feb. 9, for those who live in greater Metro Detroit and are interested in collaborating on panel/training proposals. I am trying now to set up meetings in Ann Arbor, Detroit, East Lansing, and perhaps Oakland County between now and the 9th, which is ten days before the proposals are due. If you want to get involved, if you have a great topic and/or great speakers to suggest, please send me a Kosmail. I'll meet/talk/email with individuals, too, so not to worry if you can't make a specific date or time.
NEW DKOS GROUP TO ORGANIZE SUPPORT FOR DETROIT VA HOSPITAL RESIDENTS with plans to continue for later NNs. Last year, several DK quilters organized a contribution of quilts, teddy bears, and cards to veterans in the Palo Alto VA Hospital. This year, a similar but larger project is planned. Please see the profile of this group, the DK VA Hospital Service Project, for more information, and Kosmail Sara R to join it.
These four are the first of many more to come as NN14 approaches. Mark the dates--July 17-20, 2014--and see what you can do to get here. It will be a memorable event, the best NN yet!
