U-Con Gaming Convention
I have volunteered to be U-Con's chair once again. While I'm nominally the boss, this organization cannot thrive with out its volunteers. We are partners in bringing U-Con to fruition.
To that end, my theme for this year is 'everyone contributes.' As Con Chair, I want to focus on staff recruiting, retainment, and facilitation. I want others to take initiative on the pieces which interest them. I want each of you to look for things which could be done by the new help we hope to attract. I want to facilitate communication where there are other stakeholders. I want to make efficient use of meeting time by using email to receive status reports and reserving in person meetings for discussion items.
So, even if you haven't worked on U-Con for a while, please let us know what you'd like to do. I can work with you to bound your involvement to something which fits your availability. We can provide tasks or you can define the area on which you'd like to work. My goal is to assist you where I can, facilitate communication with committee members when necessary, and get out of the way.
I look forward to working with my U-Con partners this year.
Chair, U-Con 2009
