Will you please bring some Proz signage to display at the table? Not sure how big this place is, it would be helpful in case new people show up.

Look for the giant neon flashing Pro.Z sign when you come in.

It hits the spot Apr 9, 2006

Nice place for a powwow. Lots of goodies, except for cake. They have ice cream. Cool place, nice setting. Oh yes, the attendees were Allison and myself. Proposed next powwow is at 10:30 a.m. Sat. May 6 at Blackie's, 755 S. Clark (at Polk) 786-1161. If the weather's nice we can sit outside.

Allen and Allison Apr 9, 2006

Thanks for helping to keep this monthly event going. Could you tell us if it seemed worth it to have a meeting with just two people? I am assuming this might happen again in the future if we maintain a monthly open gathering. It might be good to touch base at this point, so we may decide whether or not we need a minimum of confirmed attendants in order to hold the meeting.

ID verification Apr 9, 2006

Also, the organizer of the Powwow can request permission to verify the identities of the attendants, for those who need that. Permission to do that needs to be requested in advance. Here's the relevant info:

6. Will a ProZ.com representative attend?

In some cases, there will be a person empowered to verify identities. Members may have their identities verified by displaying photo ID to the designated representatives.

If you are organizing a powwow, and have had your own identity verified already, you may submit a support request asking for the right to verify the identities of others. You will be asked to confirm that you will only verify the identities of people who you meet in person and who show you photo ID.
