Hello Proz guys,

From what I have heard and read so far, it seeems POW-WOWS are a good thing. I have never attended one, though. The closest one held in this area was in Buenos Aires, and I couldn´t go. Traveling makes it difficult because of the need of time and money.

No POW-WOW has been held in Montevideo yet. I have checked and found out that there are more than 100 Proz members in Uruguay already. The Uruguayan Proz Community has become an important part of Proz. A Pow-wow can be a good way of giving shape and self awarness to this community, I believe.

In order to make up my mind about organizing one, I´d like to know if a speaker and/or a special topic or theme are required. Or can it just be a social gathering? I read the FAQ about this, and the information seems contradictory to me.

Thank you for your help.

No, thanks. Nov 16, 2005

Well, I have read all there is about Pow-wows. I think most of my questions have already been answered.
Unfortunately, I did not get even one single answer or comment or disagree from any Proz staff member.

Thank you anyway, guys. No need now.

Walter

Thank You for This Summary Feb 25, 2009

I have organized the first PowWow I have attended, which will be in Toronto on February 26. I am happy to be able to carry out ID Verification there as well, and Parrot's article was a very good summary on how to do this.
