Facilitation: Maristela, Kelsa and Mary will work on framing the dialogue and facilitating it
Convenor: Regina will look into a space at DePaul, if that doesn't work out Jerry will look into a union space

This meeting will be hosted by Ted at the Chicago Humanists space, where those who have already been involved in the Chicago Social Forum process will come together. In this meeting we will take at look at Open Space Technology and report back on our outreach calls, and hopefully take a look at a draft brochure.
