Who will be 'lead' member, to contact everyone and make sure we have enough people?

From EGA sign up list, these people are available for moving on Saturday 24th

Notes on Workshopology

  • Campaign perks: each "Workshop Leader" is responsible of the team planning, budget (costs and pricing), materials, participants.
  • Needs to communicate with coordination team before mid-July.
  • So far, response from the future "workshopology board":
    • Oceane Patiny, Luc Patiny, Olivier Emery, Gustavo Santamaria, Rachel Aronoff, Roger Erismann, Vanessa Lorenzo, Sam Sulaimanov.
    • Needs to be broken down by topic.
    • Best would be to have 2 workshops a month for the 6 months of the winter (November-April) -> 12 dates (each workshop can happen twice -> 6 workshops.
