hey folks! :) I'm from BayLISA.. just wanted to pipe up on this.. you have
a name.. the name has history. Unless everyone really hates the name, I'd
suggest keep it. We here at BayLISA have gone back and forth with
thinking "but really we should change the name". Also you will not
be all those crazy long acronyms.. but also the crazy long acronym +
tgfkass (the group formerly known as seattle sage..) .. ooh. bad acronym.
I'd suggest... affiliate with LOPSA.. affiliate with us folks down here in
California, BayLISA, affiliate with any other groups local in your area
that have similar interests..
Define what you are, what you want, and where you are going though as the
website isn't very clear. Do you just need help with speakers? Do you
want more people showing up at meetings? Do you want a bigger subscribers
list? Do you want more technical discussions?
I've sent some Mirapoint folks your way who will be happy to present
technical talks about email and probably host a pizza bash as well. Any
other companies that decide they want to reach out to groups I'll forward
on your contact details as well (just used the coordinator address as I
wasn't sure who to forward them on to). USENIX has a speakers repository
that you can contact ellie at usenix.org or anne at usenix.org to get
information about possible speakers in your area. BayLISA is happy to
help out with anything we can as well.. (lots of the words happy here.
sorry. I'm essentially a happy person :)
At any rate.. Hello! Nice to meet all you lovely folks! and please do let
me know if you need any help with anything.
(Speaking as BayLISA individual, and personally)
