  • 2020 training day goals discussion
  • 1st Quarter training day activities
  • Where could use help

Focused on getting everyone access to the Google Drive, Slack channel etc. Hard to expand by a lot with current committee size Expanding and changing venues seems a lot to do both at once Also looking for volunteers to join to help plan Goal is to have venue locked down by end of December so we can send the sponsor list in January This allows us us to get all the funding etc. locked down early Want to get more diverse and higher profile speaker Katie's proposal is to plan for a possible larger 2021 event while we plan a similar size/scope 2020 event We would need to scout a new venue before the end of the year in order to change this year The 2020 docs in Google are all set up and ready to go Need to find a new mixer venue as Rock Bottom has closed - would like to keep the mixer somewhere closer to the Training Day venue Please get in contact with Katie if you're interested in helping with or have ideas for Training Day You can suggest ideas without having to fully join the committee as well ! Definitely need help on the committee finding trainers and sponsors if we want to expand from last year Need to finalize date and make sure that there's no other conflict Date seemed to work pretty well this year and avoided BSides etc We think keeping it midweek is fine Katie has 3 potential dates in mind - September 16th, 23rd, 30th
