At our December meeting, we had a very spirited and substantive discussion regarding the formation of committees that would be the "action arm" of LPNOVA. We all had some great ideas but did not reach conclusion on exactly how we should organize themselves. Nobody said this was going to be easy, but hey, I'm just crazy enough to enjoy the challenge. At any rate, until we actually do form these committees, I think there are some things we can be doing right now. The underlying issue that I took from our discussions is that no matter our direction, WE NEED MORE MEMBERS. That being said, I would like to solicit volunteers from our humble ranks to create and maintain an LPNOVA site on the most popular networking sites: MySpace, Facebook, Yahoo! Groups, and LinkedIn. In addition, some of you may already be a member on Bureaucrash, a very popular "small L" libertarian networking site based in DC.
Let us know your thoughts: if you are interested in creating and maintaining a social page on one of these websites as a platform for recruiting new members, please send an email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or reply to this post. We are looking for people who are creative, handy with these types of websites, and dedicated to maintain our page on a regular basis. If you need ideas, you can go to LP.org and follow the links to the LP's social networking sites. Thanks, and I look forward to hearing your ideas!

At the December 15th Meetup we will discuss 2009 plans for LPNOVA. We want everyone to come to the meetup and give their input as to what they think we should do, but it would also be great to get a head start on this VERY IMPORTANT discussion. So, please use this post as a place to leave your thoughts and comments. The more ideas that better, so give us everything you have. Let's get a discussion going!
