Are you interested in attending?
Are you interested in being part of the organizing team?
Lets start by creating a list with the names and emails of people who
are interested in some way. What do you think?
Also, here are two links with some great information on Edcamps:

In discussing this with Mark,
Sahali Secondary might be a better option. Food & accommodation are more easily accessible. Like Mark, I've organized conferences before, so I'm excited by the possibilities for EdCamp!
I agree that a school would be the best place to hold it, and either
South Kamloops or Sahali sound good to me. The edcampfv offered boxed
lunches for $5. Participants indicated whether they wanted one on
their registration form and then paid the day of the camp. The box
consisted of a sandwich, juice box, fruit and cookie, and I believe
quite a few people ordered one.
I prefer the idea of holding it sometime in the Spring, since I think
the roads will be better for driving. I'd love to have people from the
surrounding districts involved! Plus I think there might be some
people from Vancouver interested in coming up. This would also give us
time to talk to and learn from the edcamp43 and edcampdelta
organizers. Does anyone know when Spring Break is this year for #SD73,
and the surrounding districts?
Is anyone planning on attending one of the other edcamps? I'm going
down to edcamp43 on Jan.14th...

I don't know alot about edcamps, but will look over the links posted
here over the christmas break.
I am myself not going to be able to attend the Jan edcamp, but perhaps
anyone who goes can give us a summary and provide some organizational
We should also have more people involved in the planning committee
because I don't have a prep next semester and am not sure how much
time/work I can put in.
Involvement from others outside of your district would be beneficial
as you are hoping to have as good a turn out as possible and the best
way is for people in other district promoting it as well.
You will probably want 1 or two people to set up a twitter account and
to monitor, retweet and promote the event as well as a form for
registration that will collect the info needed. The members of the
EdCamp43 will be happy to help you with any questions you may have.
It would be hugely beneficial for you to see an edcamp in person to
get a solid understanding of some of the structures and organization
needed. EdCamp43 and EdCampDelta are both on the 14th so if you are
able to come down to either one you would probably find that useful.
Vancouver Island is supposed to be doing an Edcamp in March and
Vancouver is doing their edcamp in April. The exact dates should be
on the EdCampBC site, make sure to add yours once you have decided.
I'd like to set up that Twitter account to help us recruit a few more
organizers and get the word out, but would like to ask everyone's
thoughts on our name. Do we want to stick with EdCamp73, or do we want
to change to EdCampKamloops? Most of the EdCamps listed go by the city
(only Coquitlam has the district number). What are your thoughts?
