As many of you know, Brett Hendrickson and I (Brandi Denison) unsuccessfully proposed a permanent group last year. Winds have shifted and we are being encouraged to resubmit the proposal this year.
You can help. If you wrote a letter of support last year, could you update it for this year? If you didn't write a letter last year, would you write one now?
The letter is brief and would simply indicate your interest in the establishment of this as a group. It would be useful if you could talk about how the group provides you with something unique, unmatched by other groups. Additionally, it would be useful if you indicated that it makes more sense to have this group meet nationally than regionally.
Please email this letter to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for this letter is this Friday (11/29). If you have any questions, concerns, or ideas for the future of the group, please contact us!
