Hey all! With Pinter slowly creeping up on us, I thought it’d be best to get a head start on the planning for the Pinny Pals Community West panel to keep the hype alive. I know it’s super early, but hey, early birds… get places on the panel.
We want to keep the tradition of community-driven panels about our shared hobby going by combining both new ideas, while also doing a gentle nod to some tried and true Pinny Pals Community staples (think Pinny Pals etiquette, how much it costs, when the Community Meetups are, displays, etc).
First, we have to choose a panel leader who will choose the main topic of the panel and will (with the assistance of others) have final say on who is on the panel. Similar to choosing the panel leader, anyone who wants to be on the panel can submit their idea of what they want to present on, why they think they'll do a good job and how it fits in with the main topic of the panel.
The panel leader, with the input of others in a sort of committee-type setting, will choose the panelists based on their submissions. After that point it's up to the leader and the panelists to decide upon a theme, get their submission in by the deadline, and create and execute their presentation at PAX West.
Because this is just an interest thread, we at this time would like to gauge the community’s interest and involvement.
Things also to note:
- You may be asked to submit an audio or a visual file (think Youtube video) recording of yourself, explaining your topic or position on the panel.
- You may be asked to submit an additional written proposal for your topic or position on the panel.
- Know that the ultimate submission for your position or idea will be at the beginning of June, as everyone needs time to select the panelists, have them work on the slides, and collect themselves for submission for the panel at West.
- Please advised that because this is group effort, you must be fully on board to give a solid chunk of your time towards this and that you are 100% sure you will be attendance at PAX West and the Pinny Pals Panel.
Best of luck to everyone. Let's hear your ideas!
