– last time we listed the many cities, we should survey them to see what is most effective. maybe visit the larger cities and invite the smaller cities to come, or send folks out from the larger cities to train the smaller cities in facilitation etc
– if there is a lot of interest, build up a caravan of vehicles (and maybe bicycles)

Survey for other cities:
infrastructure – how big they are, how often they meet, do they have GA’s & working groups, police/legal situation
goals – what would you like to see develop
what can we help with or bring (to facilitate moving towards their goals)
contacts in that city; is there somewhere nearby we can stay while there

survey for our NYC working groups (request for reports from our working groups to compile and bring to share with other
