The Bottom Line Needs Reporters
The Bottom Line is looking for reporters. I would like to find anyone who is interested in taking notes for the Bottom Line, at NY events like the PRG workshop, the Old-timers workshop, and Share-A-Day, etc. This will greatly expand our coverage of NY events.
Some ideas for note taking can include:
1. Names of the presenters
2. Title of their workshops
3. Notes on speakers & group feedback, if possible
4. Quotes of DA wisdom gleaned from workshop participants
5. Workshop handout materials
All or part of this along with personal DA thoughts of the workshop would be wonderfully welcome by the Bottom Line. & Would give us the chance to share some of the wisdom from NY workshops with those who missed them. One person need not cover the whole event, just one meeting. Thanks.
