Where would everyone like to meet? I can volunteer my place if everyone is not bored with it.

1) Volunteer needed to source Signage for Community Boards
There are lots of free community noticeboards around, allocated for Not For Profit groups like us to advertise on (think where you might have seen the likes of ads for Teddys bear Picnic ) The catch is that the signs must be professionally signwritten. Here's what Kelly (kb) found out for Akl in our last RNW planning:They are to be made on 5-7mm thick coreflute, and are sized between 1200x1200 or 1100x815, depending on site.
Who wants to volunteer for this job? You will need to find the best quotes so we know how many signages we (TNN Inc) can afford/want to get.
2) Cloth Expo.
The opportunity to sell their products at the Auckland RNW Expo this year was very well received by WAHMs. Unfortunately, it was a late decision and we only had space for 6-7 WAHMs. For 2008, can we go BIG? As in the concept of a P&C show, Dolls show, Quilt & Craft Show - so a MCN expo in the bigger cities like Akl, Wgtn, and Christchurch? This will be a huge undertaking, so a volunteer is needed urgently to contact all the MCN wahms. You will need to write or call the wahms as not all wahms are on this forum on a regular basis. I will let you know in detail the sort of info you will need to give the WAHMs.

sorry i have been absent for a while - it was a computer free week of sun, sand and surf holidays down in the Coromandel for us.
Shyrel, could you check out availability and cost of the New Lynn Centre that Nova mentioned and the Te Atatu Peninsula Community Centre beccahv mentioned? Sat 19th April 10am-2pm sounds like a good decision to me - we normally have a thread dedicated to RNW dates in the country so if one hasn't already been started, i will set it up after this post. Also, I will email/PM Darny to update on the main website.

And yes, we'd charge a fee - the bigger WAHMs expects to pay a fee, and I'd think the smaller WAHMs would consider if our fees aren't exhorbitant
It was tricky as the venue was kinda going to be dependent on the interest from the WAHMs for an expo, but at the same time we needed to book a venue asap. Anyway, i suspect now we are back in the same position we were last year - we're back to having to book a venue first, which means we will only be able to "sell"/offer x limited amount of stalls.

I felt rather responsible for it last year (not saying that I did all the work, not at all, but i did feel like I have to make a lot of the decisions cos we were short on time to allow for democratic voting then felt stressed at the thought that I was coming across as being a dictator!). This year I am committed to be the TNN rep for organising something with the WCC for RNW.
