Schedule Check

Keynote speakers:

  • Christie's suggestions — first on list being contacted

Content Committee:


Closes in 10 days. (23d)

We need to promote more!!

Remind people via mass email. Email can also have year 5 fun, party announcement, sponsorship request.

I've started some notes about this, including some extra things that Melissa wrote that didn't end up in the extension blog post:


At some point, we may be able to determine last year's attendance from raffle tickets that are buried in storage.

There were at most 360 people = 330 attendees who could attend party + 29 tickets.


So far

  • Rentrak - advocate
  • ElevatedCode - friend
  • SEOMoz - ?
  • Puppet - ?

Will promote more at Lunch 2.0 tomorrow.

As of today, 38 people are registered. About the same as last year this time.


Should do:

  • User group outreach, discount codes
  • CFP promotion (window closing soon!)
  • Registration promotion. Printed materials may be helpful here /if/ we have a plan for distributing them.
  • Contact specific classes/teachers about the conference and CFP, plus volunteer opportunities


Did blog post re: CFP extension.

Starting posts on diversity, hiring practices.

Let Melissa know if you have ideas and she'll add them to the editorial calendar.
