A Clan With A Plan: Portland Etsy Team Town Hall Meeting

March 18, 2010 at 3:44 pm 4 comments

Inspired by the excitement surrounding I Heart Art: Portland and anxious to get the Portland Etsy Team back on it’s feet, we will be holding a Town Hall–style meeting for all members of the Portland Etsy Team on April 7th, 2010 at 7:30pm. We’ll be gathering in the Swigert Commons at PNCA (the same place as the I Heart Art: Portland Meet ‘n’ Greet) for a productive and guided discussion that will help us map out our future plans as a team!

The Portland Etsy Team has been a long-standing group of stellar Etsy sellers in a city where DIY culture thrives. Its membership has exploded, and in order to be beneficial to its 650+ members, we need to establish structure, organization, and set very clear goals for what we want to achieve. We want to gather as many members of the team under one roof as possible to maximize our potential!

We want to gauge the expectations of the members at large, both those that have been around since the team’s inception and those that have joined more recently. What support do the team members need from each other? How can the team aid the success of its members? What can we do locally? How can we work with other organizations? And who is going to help us do it?

The answers to all these questions and more are crucial to our ongoing success. But in order to help us guide the evening in an effective way, we’ve put together an online survey for everyone to fill out beforehand. Call it the Portland Etsy Team Census! It won’t take you long, and you’ll be thrilled you contributed! You can access the survey here. All we ask is that you complete it before March 26th. We’d also love it if you could RSVP here for the meeting so we know how many chairs to set up!

You may ask yourself, “Who is putting all this together?” or “Is there someone in charge here?”

We are Isaac (ibwatson), Shannon (rubygirl), Leah (leahpellegrini), Rebecca (slumptown), Cheryl (holdentees), Kirsten (piperewan), and Judi (curlygirlglass). We want to help make the team everything it hopes and dreams for. So help us help you!
