Kansas LoCo Council
I'd like to suggest that "active" members appoint and/or vote for a five member panel for Kansas LoCo Council for administrative and organizational duties. A panel will help keep administrative, organizational and promotional duties from getting stagnet, while encouraging new members to join. These members should be located actively participating in a local business, family or LUG activities in Kansas.
Getting enough support for a state LoCo for a state that is large and sparse as Kansas can be tough. It's been suggested breaking the state into "regions" and using the regions to organize the LoCo. It's also been suggested to use "regions" or city LoCo's rather than trying to organize by state.
As I see it, there are x regions (correct or add as needed);
- Kansas City
- Junction City
Major Regions (Active)
- North East Kansas
- North Central Kansas
- South Central Kansas
- South Eastern Kansas (?)
- Air LUG
- Others (?)
Are there others? (Great Plains, Blue Hills, Smoky Hills, Grasslands, etc.)
One issue on the table is the KanLoCo logo. There have been several suggested, none voted on, and one unofficially promoted at the last state wide release party.
Re: Kansas LoCo Council
I'd be interested in being a leader in SE Kansas. I'm a friend of the Nebraska contact for the Ubuntu project and they're starting up some interesting projects up there. I could collaborate with them with your permission. For instance, they're setting up a website with links to Nebraska Ubuntu sites and links for support - A unified website. They're also beginning efforts to give people free or cheap computers that come loaded with Ubuntu and offering to go to other people's houses to install Ubuntu for free or cheap. I'd be interested in applying for a leadership position and I could try to start a local group. I got to Pittsburg State University and could even try to set up a local group.
