Meeting Minutes 11/30/2006

We're discussing David's latest draft for the call for submissions.

In attendance: Aaron Westre, David McWilliams, Scott Watson.

The call is in good shape. We need to send it out soon. What else do we need for the call?

  • Final wording
  • Images
  • Layout

We need to put up posters for the call for submissions and call for participating.

David will revise call and send out tomorrow. I will work on the fineprint and get that to David. We'll also take a crack at laying out the call and posters.
