maybe you should send out a notification? Feb 8, 2011

I think I'm free that day, but I'd like for us to have theme/place.
May I suggest one: "Life long learning in translation: different strategies for updating and expanding our knowledge".

For the notification: last time I sent out notifications to all proz.members that were within 50 miles of Toronto.

That would be good! Feb 8, 2011

Hey Suzanne,

I would love to actually, but the time is a bit late for me, should you change it, I would be pleased to attend.

Toronto Powwow - Feb 25/11 - Location Feb 9, 2011

Since it appears that although La Marche/Movenpick has a great selection of food but has been challenging in terms of seating, I am suggesting that we meet the following location, where we have met several times before:

Bodega Restaurant at 30 Baldwin St, Toronto, Ontario
Less than 5 min walk from St Patrick subway station
Restaurant Phone No.: 416 977 1287

Notifications Feb 11, 2011

I haven't received any e-mail notification yet. Have they been sent out? (in that case something didn't work in the notification system and maybe the automated e-mails should be repeated)

Powwow Notifications to be Resent Feb 17, 2011

I have heard that some Toronto Proz.com members have not received the notification sent out on February 8. I have submitted another support request asking that the notifications be resent.

I did not receive the notification from the last Powwow that was organized either, so there must be a system glitch.

Informal agenda Feb 22, 2011

I agree with Hege: it'd be great if, among other things, we could talk of translators' continuing education and professionalization in Canada.

Hi Olga,

Great idea, we can focus on translators' continuing education.

I will be confirming the numbers with La Bodega today.

Hi, Suzanne. Thanks for organizing the powwow.

Cheers,

February 25, 2011 at 6 PM Feb 25, 2011

Hi Bianca,

The time is 6 PM. The system won't let me change it to 6 PM, it keeps restricting me to 6 AM!

24 hour format? Feb 25, 2011

Maybe the system wants a 24-hour time? When scheduling systems insists on events taking place in the wee hours that’d be my first thought.

Thanks Feb 25, 2011

Thanks, Suzanne!

So this mistake in the email I got yesterday must have been the system's too:

Thank You for Attending the Toronto Powwow Mar 1, 2011

Thank you to everyone who attended the Toronto Powwow on February 25, 2011. We had a great time dining at La Bodega (great restaurant) and discussing continuing education for translators. The Powwow report and pictures will be posted on the Powwow page in a few days.
