about The CannaVention Objectives Our Objectives.

- CannaVention Objectives - establishing meetings and meet-ups on a regular basis</b>, ongoing discussions and resource networking.

<p align= You are receiving this email because you previously indicated to Dan Koozer on the dpfor list that you would be interested in helping to organize/coordinate/volunteer for the first ever Oregon Cannavention, a convention for cannabis activists and other interested parties, AND you have a demonstrated track record of being responsible, accountable, and showing good integrity & the ability to work cooperatively with others.

I have volunteered myself and our organization - Institute for Cannabis Therapeutics -- to take the lead in hosting/sponsoring/coordinating this event. I have previous professional experience organizing & coordinating conferences, specifically the Peaceful Settlements conferences which were hosted by Boise State University and Unversity of Alaska at Fairbanks, where the state-wide community participated in a variety of break-out sessions and learned how to implement conflict management/dispute resolution practices. (I've worked on many other conferences as well)

The people receiving this email are INVITATION ONLY to be on the CANNAVENTION ORGANIZING COMMITTEE. All other interested parties will be contacted once we have an idea or plan to move forward with. If you know of someone specific who has integrity, is able to cooperate in a synergistic manner and is willing to take on responsibility and be accountable for those responsibilities, please send me their name and email address with a copy to Dan Koozer. If you know of someone who would like to help/volunteer, we will keep that list also and contact them later.

I suggested to Dan Koozer that we first have a conference call within the next week to discuss our ideas with each other and recommend next steps.

For a starting point, I have offered the following ideas that may be built upon, but I am anxious to hear what your ideas are, and I will put together an agenda for our conference call given the ideas you send me. Unless you have another suggestion, I use www.freeconferencecall.com and will provide a phone number and PIN# once we have the date and time set for the call.

Steps to take:

1. Conference call to discuss ideas. WHAT GOALS SHOULD THIS CONFERENCE ATTEMPT TO ACHIEVE?

2. Create specific teams and enlist TEAM CAPTAINS for specific project areas: PROGRAM DESIGN TEAM(who will be keynote speaker, what kind of break out sessions/topics of interest, possible mini-dispute resolution training for everyone, breaks & lunch, etc), MARKETING & SPONSORSHIP TEAM (includes creating graphic design for flyers, conference agenda, etc, calling all MMJ orgs to see if they want to co-sponsor &/or have a booth (lets keep prices as low as possible for maximum participation), LOGISTICS TEAM (locking in the location, dates, time, and all equipment services, food services, and other details), EVENT TEAM (Volunteer coordinator for the actual day of event), REGISTRATION TEAM, LEGISLATION TEAM (what are the various sources for upcoming cannabis legislation - like Todd's OMCRA and other) and other team ideas you have

3. Have an in-person meeting in Eugene for Team Captains and other interested parties this Nov/Dec

4. Select a date in Early/Mid Spring for the actual CANNAVENTION (unless you all think a different time of year would be better)

5. Each team has set goals and timeline , with follow=through and contingency plans

So - please respond and let me know if you are interested in being on the CANNAVENTION ORGANIZING COMMITTEE, and if so, what is the best time for the conference call between Tues evening (11/9) through out the week/week end to Tues (11/16).

Thanks to all of you for your interest and dedication to our community. Feel free to call me anytime: 541-690-7276 best, christine mcgarvin

Depending on the size of attedies we could use my building I certainly have the space. Iva Cunningham Alternative Medical Choices 503-288-5579

And more as you, the people, make it happen.
