Re: [PLUG] Speakers needed?

Good idea!

How about this:

What other info?  I can share/transfer the spreadsheet to whomever would like to administer it (although it takes 2m to setup).

We need a section of the plug website or use another service for suggested spoken topics.

This whole emailing for speakers all the time sounds really dumb to me.  Myself and others have sent emails in the past on topics we're willing to talk about but they get lost in the wave of the mailing list.  If you truly want to have an active lineup for speakers then you need to create a submission queue that members can add their topics to which *stays* around and can be regularly referenced.  PLUG members can optionally vote on topics (anonymously or not)...  And for those rainy days when you feel like you want to email out a "request for speakers" message, don't!  You could just refer to this list of proposed talks by individuals and contact them individually asking if they're willing to talk in the upcoming meeting.  I think doing this would allow you to keep your hair, fewer members will be butthurt from being ignored, and I think this would excite more activity in our organization.

Thoughts on my proposal?
