Agenda:

App – Pretty well set here - Tory encouraged everyone to be active in app.

Lightning Talks – About 90 submissions so far; Carrie will coordinate distributing to small group to identify top 30; email to go out to all attendees letting them know they can vote for top five in app; three sessions of 30 min with five sessions each (thurs, fri, sat). 

Trivia Night – all set here, definitely team trivia. should there be a prize for winning team and if so what?

First Timer Game - Tory said might want to quickly review just to see if we want to include any late-breaking items like Portal. Prize will be free registration for next conference. 

Community Service – [i didn't get great notes on this, wasn't organized at beginning of call sorry - maybe someone can add]

Mind/Body -

  • Run/Walk – Kathleen volunteered to lead a walk, something about local arrangements (see above for reason for sketchy notes  here ;) ...)
  • Meditation room – all set, will be called Zen Room. agreement that as long as programming clearly posted no chance of confusion with quiet room.
  • Quiet room – all set have furniture in the works
  • Desk Yoga – going to be in Zen Room space. 
  • Art Lounge – Saira will organize bringing items, like yarn, markers etc (Thanks!) - send coloring book pages from your libraries, if you have them, direct to her. If your library wants it branded or whatever make sure PDF you send her includes that. Have visitors to space enter names and will do a drawing for $50 Amazon gift card.
