First, I am not sure what happened with [Wikimedia Cascadia], but there
were a number of emails that were delayed until this evening including
yours. Forgive us therefore for not responding to you sooner.
Second, others will need to weigh in, but in MHO, I think that the best
means would be to have someone come to us _and_ sessions at WikiConf. I
think that between edit-a-thons that have been held in Portland, OR,
interest in doing edit-a-thons in the Seattle area, & professors at
University of Washington who have had students edit Wikipedia as part of
the class, I think that there would be more effective to have you come from
DC than to have a few of us come from Seattle.
Third, I think that having sessions at WikiConf USA is an excellent idea
that would benefit us nationally. From what I hear, it is likely that
2015's WikiConf USA may well be a follow-on to Wiki Education Foundation's
efforts. If this is true, I think that training in best practices of
workshop facilitation would be a natural fit.

I've been talking to Pine for the last couple of days about training some
of you in the best practices of workshop facilitation. We've been
discussing several options for this, including coming to you all, having
some of you come to DC for one of our formal sessions, or attending
sessions at WikiConf USA. Who would be interested and what format do you
think would work for you?
