NWroots 2011: Tell us how we did!

On behalf of the NPI team and the NWroots Fel­low­ship, I’d like to thank all of our read­ers and sup­port­ers who came to NWroots 2011 on Sat­ur­day. We were very pleased with how the event turned out, and grate­ful that so many folks were will­ing to give up a sun­ny sum­mer Sat­ur­day to par­tic­i­pate.

If you were one of the folks who attend­ed, please take a moment to fill out our sur­vey and tell us about your expe­ri­ence.

We’d like to get your impres­sions on what worked as well as what did­n’t work, so we can improve next year’s event. The ques­tions are pret­ty open-end­ed, so you can zero in on what­ev­er you’d like to com­ment on.

A num­ber of jour­nal­ists and activists have writ­ten blog posts about NWroots 2011. Here’s a roundup of the ones that we know about:

Sev­er­al of the above posts describe NWroots as a North­west Pro­gres­sive Insti­tute con­fer­ence. While NPI did orga­nize NWroots in the past, we became a co-orga­niz­er this year with the for­ma­tion of the NWroots Fel­low­ship. The Fel­low­ship, with Robert Sar­gent at the helm, real­ly took the lead in putting the 2011 con­fer­ence togeth­er.

In fact, if Robert had­n’t stepped for­ward to orga­nize it in Decem­ber 2010, NWroots 2011 could not and would not have hap­pened.

So, read­ers, if you went to NWroots, be sure to thank Robert if you have a chance. He put in many, many hours and deserves our grat­i­tude for a job well done.
