I've updated the People of Color Working Group page. But I was looking through my emails, it appears that a Julian ( emailed here) is also forming a POC group.

So is there a way you can introduce yourselves and see how you want to be represented, either as one group or as 2 different POC groups. If you decide on 2 different POC groups, you might want to consider points of distinction so people are not confused. Preferably a neutral distinction, like meeting times, etc.

Anyhow I leave it to you, let me know what you think.

    Hi Hanalei,
    I've just created the POC Working Group page.

    Please send me the info:

    meeting times/locations
    discussion list info


    Also I'm not sure if Calendar events are being added by a few people
    or all the groups? Can someone on this list answer that? I noticed
    LaurenD and mbralow adding most events.

        Hi POC!
        I'm a POC as well and am glad you all are working on this. We
        need to
        get more POC folks down here in a big way. I'm copying this
        email to the
        the Internet Working Group. I believe they are in the process of
        re-organizing the website so I'm not sure how soon your info
        will go up.
        Please make sure that you keep the info desks up to date with
        you are planning and doing.

            Hello, Info Desk!

            The POC Working group is new and we've just registered for
        the blog
            and haven't yet received the requested password to post our
            to the Google calendar. We'd also like to post our working
        "about" page, including some contacts. What is the process in order
            to get this done?

            We'd appreciate any guidance you can provide in expediting
        this process!
