Domain management - tech team? Who would like to work on this? (Amy) FYI We have a Syndicate account with Gandi and could work on transferring domains there.



Prospectus / Sponsorship

Prospectus is finalized. Will be sending out pitch for review. Draft pitch: Public link to prospectus? - coming to site soon, along with update removing last year's sponsors. I have a shit ton of example pitch emails that get sent to Mozilla. Is it helpful to see these? Most of them kinda suck. Meaning, we're doing pretty good.


We need to promote more!! Remind people via mass email in about three days. Email can also have year 5 fun, party announcement, sponsorship request.


Shepherd is working on flyers. We need to schedule dates for meeting with volunteers (and possibly have a party) What dimensions are preferred, please?
