Hello Wikimedians of Colorado,
How about getting together to take stock of our activities and plan a few
small things over the next few months?
We can plan to meet in Boulder or somewhere on the Turnpike one of the
evenings during the week of 8/26 (week after next) or week of 9/2 (Labor
Day week.) Let us know what works for you.
Keep it simple.
As simple as possible.
But no simpler. --- A. Einstein
This might be of interest, particularly if you're going to be attending WikiConference North America!

One more FAQ -
* Q: do you have to be attending the conference in order to fill out the form?
* A: nope! Even if you can't come, take the chance to highlight your group!

> If you feel like you are an organized group that does Wikimedia stuff, feel free to fill out the form regardless of formal affiliation :)
> * who should fill out the form?
> Whoever can get the info to me by Nov 1!
> * What if we don't like your poster design?
> You can bring your own poster! These posters won't be fancy so if you want a special design please feel free to make your own. Again, if you are making your own, 11x17 or smaller and deadline to bring the physical poster is Saturday am, the first day of the conference at MIT.
> * where did this idea come from?
> This is inspired by the community village at Wikimania 2019, where Cornelius organized a very nice display of posters from international affiliates
> * what's the point?
> We do a lot of cool stuff across North America, and this is to help all attendees understand the reach and breadth of Wikimedia affiliates across the continent!
