Location... location...location Dec 3, 2001

My husband has graciously agreed to allow me to use our home for our little get-together. I would then ask everyone to bring a dish so we can make it a Potluck. I live in Mar Vista (behind Marina Del Rey) and I can fit 15 comfortably (20 squished) in the house (it's a bit too cold to have it in the back yard and I don't have a heat lamp). The other option is if everyone chips in $10-15 I can get the thing "catered". Is this more acceptable than going to a restaurant or coffee shop to everyone?

Please let me know.

Roles, locations, date...? Dec 3, 2001

I live in San Bernardino, but don't mind cimmuting to any of the mentioned locations. I do prefer Pasadena or downtown LA. A potluck in Mar Vista sounds great---it's a great suggestion!---more personable and a lot cozier. If not $15-25 is fine with me. Exactly when would this be? What is a PNS interviewer. I think I may volunteer to be a reporter or an interviewer. Tell me what PNS ism please.

Keeping It Simple Dec 3, 2001

I think the food aspect should get lowest priority. If Julia and her husband are kind enough to offer the home, soft drinks and coffee with cookies will be the least disruptive thing to do. Or people can bring a sandwich. Then we can concentrate on our common professional concerns. Any objections to this keep-it-simple approach?

Ditto simple Dec 3, 2001

I think BYO sandwiches, and otherwise simply coffee and soda are good ideas.
Who will confirm date, place, etc.?

Simplicity is always the best Dec 4, 2001

I agree on the simplicity so we can concentrate on other interests. I will be coming from Oxnard and need to get directions. If you need money for the coffee and cookies, let us know. Thanks for offering your house Julia. Hope to hear about the final details soon. Cristina

For those who can't make it this time Dec 4, 2001

There will be other Powwow's in the next few months in other Southern CA areas (I'm planning one in Orange County in Feb., one in San Diego or San Bernardino in late spring, and so on...). Don't dispair, it will be rolling around your way at some point.

Los Angeles ProZ Powwow Info Dec 7, 2001

Hello everyone,

Here are the final details for our Powwow on the 15th.

Time: 1pm-4pm

Location:
My house
4337 Chase Avenue
Los Angeles, CA 90066 (Mar Vista)

Bring: $5 to cover drinks and snacks (we are not serving a full meal)

Agenda:
1) Introductions
2) Talk about ProZ (I will have their website on my computer and those who don't know much will be shown how to navigate it a bit better)
3) Talk about other issues facing translators today including continuing education and the various local groups that can help with that
(if anyone has any other topics they are dying to talk about let me know, we'll try to add them to the agenda)

RSVP: Please call me at (310) 721-4716 to RSVP no later than Friday the 14th so that I know how much stuff to have.

Sherman and I look forward to seeing you there!

[Directions: from the North take the 405 South to the 90 West. Exit Centinela, make a right. Make a left on Short Avenue and a right on Chase. We are on the left hand side. From the South take the 405 North to the 90 West and follow the rest of the directions. From the East take the 10 West, Exit Bundy south, take Bundy south (it becomes Centinela) to Short Ave., make a right on Short and a right on Chase. Since Chase is on an angle and hard to see, I will put a sign on the corner with the words ProZ on it.]

Need final RSVP's by tomorrow Dec 13, 2001

So far I have only 7 RSVP's and will make sure there are enough snacks for 10 but it would be nice to know who else is thinking of coming. I have the list so that we can do the ID check, I have a camera (not digital - if anyone has a digital one please bring it) so we can do profile pictures for those who want it (if no digital camera is available you will have to wait until I develop the film - I will scan the pics in and send them to those who requested them for approval), and I have DSL and a computer so we can take a little time and look through the various features of the site.

What I cannot do at this point is the Native Speaker Interview. That will have to wait until the next Powwow.

Julia
