Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] POA 2007

OK, PofA mom type here again.

Traditionally PofA tries to move the nationals across the country so it comes near every area at least every 6 years.  2001 was in Tampa (east), 2003 was in Oklahoma (west central), 2005 in Minneapolis (central).  By rights the 2007 should be on the west coast and 2009 on the east, but (since I'm not on the board anymore I don't keep track of these things) I haven't heard about whether or not there have been any bids for a west or east coast fest yet.  

If someone wants to propose a festival they get together a proposal and budget and put together the staff for it (pretty much all volunteers) and then they make a case for it to the national board.  There's no already set-up festival staff, each fest is a different one.  There's a manual to help with the proposal  process, and if anyone here is serious about it I can help them get ahold of a copy of it.  Putting together a national festival is a huge amount of work, and also hugely rewarding.
