I've been a reporter, press release writer and book reviewer, all on a small scale. I love to write, maintain a blog, and am detail-oriented. I have backgrounds in history, Poli. Sci. And education. I prefer to work on a team. Most of the typos you see in my posts are the result of Auto-correct. I promise I'm more meticulous than that!

I have worked for a newspaper as a beat reporter on internship and I've done some minor public relations work including the development of nursing program brochures for a non-profit. I am pretty much obsessed with learning how TV Radio and other mediums are used for propaganda. I have a degree in both Political Science and Journalism. In general, I can probably contribute by establishing a strong message that is simple and powerful (IE think Frank Luntz) and can help establish a powerful "brand" that could be easily recognizable to the masses.
As part of a team of critical thinkers, anything is possible.

Great. How do go about this? Communicate among ourselves - or through an open thread?
Who is to come up with our immediate priorities?

I'd suggest that all groups get together in whatever way makes them most comfortable - here in the forum in your WorkGroup forum, an online Skype meeting, email, whatever. Figure out your strengths and weaknesses amongst yourselves. Assign people to specific areas, or work on them all together.

One of you will have to be the Workgroup facilitator, responsible for running meetings in a fair and democratic fashion. Someone will have to take minutes, too (I would suggest not the facilitator, as he/she will be busy enough!) if it's a voice meeting.

All Workgroups must report back to the general populace once a week. I should make a forum section for that. What does everyone think of having votes of confidence from the general populace on each workgroup once a week after the reports? Basically a "yeah the PR group sounds like they're headed in the right direction" or "whoa, hey, these guys are clueless" sort of thing.

Assume that we have a deadline of getting people to Philly or an online convention by July 4. Work backward from there and create a timeline of activity?

I would REALLY REALLY stress that we shouldn't worry about timelines until we fully identify our mission and our group. That's up to everyone.

To Molly: agree with working in a separate forum and deliver once a week. But I would like our mission and immediate priorities to be defined/confirmed by the steering committee. We could come up with a draft of the same if preferred.

To the group: I cannot be the facilitator and if you want me on the phone that will by Skype as I am in Korea right now. But you can definitely count on me to do my daily work. I would propose to work by email for now.
