We know not everyone was in attendance today and we really want to keep you all updated! However, I am running on very little sleep and haven’t finished compiling the information so more thorough updates from the first general assembly will be available tomorrow. If you were there today, it’d be a big help if you could send me a summary of what you saw and what was said. For those who weren’t there, we basically had an open forum where many attendees took turns giving their thoughts, opinions and encouragements to the crowd. We also discussed forming committees, and the description of the committees can be found at the blog (http://occupyreno.wordpress.org). If you didn’t get a chance to sign the signup sheet, please email us with the committee you’d like to be in (firstname.lastname@example.org – put COMMITTEE in the subject line). We are going to add additional committees in the near future but let’s stick with those for now.
Local media was also in attendance today, including KUNR, KOLO 8, KRNV 4, RGJ, RN&R and independent media outlets. We tried to livestream but our laptop overheated and our power was shut off but the livestream will for sure be up at this weekend’s meeting. The next meeting is planned for this Saturday at 1 p.m. at the Underground. Directions, info and the agenda for that meeting will be sent out soon.
Sorry this is brief but I hope it gives you an idea of what happened today. Thanks to all who came, and to those who didn’t/couldn’t, thank you for your continued support and passion and we hope to see you soon!
