We would have to find a room to meet and drink and snack in, Giovanni. Trying to crowd in a bar might not work. I don't see why the 'committee' should organize it. Any member who knows Philadelphia well or has a connection to the AAA meetings organizers could launch the thing. Perhaps we could start a Forum discussion group (this one?) nearer the time to discuss how we could make best use of so many members being in the same place at one time. It occurs to me that December is the provisional time the admins gave themselves to try to launch the OAC (half a year). So questions of governance would be appropriate then. But I hope that, rather than indulge in parish pump politics as we have in the last couple of weeks, we might air possible creative collaborations and other developments of the network there. Let us also be mindful of the large number of OAC members who will never attend a meeting of the AAA in their lives. Their voices should be heard too. This suggests maybe an online conference beforehand and possibly afterwards.
