The conference team met for the second time today - we're down to a two hour meeting time. We've ironed out the logo, the schedule of events (lots of variety, some interesting potential connections), and who will have what jobs. We've now got a team of 6, with more to come once the school year starts and things get busier. Hats off to our conference chair, Matt Weschler. 

With the website up and running (if not at its own domain yet), we're reading to start reaching out to speakers and sponsors. If you're interested in being a sponsor, we'd love to talk to you - send Becky an email at rlg74 at If, on the other hand, you've got a project you'd like to present, or are part of an organization that works on sustainability issues that those in other rustbelt cities might be interested in, take a look at our call for speakers.
