Last year, the leader’s meeting was mainly to receive feedback on the event that had just happened as well as to see if we wanted to continue having the conference.
It is time to start thinking in longer terms, and to give schools a longer period of time to plan their own conferences as well as fundraise. Thus, if your team is interested in hosting conference please come to the meeting with a proposal and plan for what you want to do do. Take into consideration funding, fundraising, and how much your school would be willing to provide.
This year, we should select the next two hosts so that one of the schools will have two years to plan, a great advantage in securing funds.
Please leave comments with your suggestions for what to cover during this meeting. Some questions may be how do we create a cohesive east coast identity or foster more interaction between groups?
