Subject: Green Festival: Updates & Next Meeting Aug. 25 for Mass Transit & MarketingGreetings Los Angeles Host Committee,Thanks to everyone who turned out for our recent meeting at Akasha restaurant in Culver City! For those of you who couldn't join us, I introduced our new Regional Marketing Director Daniela Meltzer and we received some great ideas for programming and promotions. Daniela sits on the board of Amazon Watch and is a native Angeleno as well a Colombian-American. We're very excited to have her direct our Los Angeles Green Festival marketing efforts!Several people requested that I send an email to share with friends, colleagues and your extended community so they can learn about the Green Festival and discover how they'd like to get involved. This involvement includes exhibitors, helping with outreach, speaking on a panel, volunteering, becoming a nonprofit ally and attending the festival itself.Attached please find a document to read and share with others. There's a lot of information as well as ways to get in touch with our team. I'm attaching a PDF as well as a Word document so you can add a personal introduction if you want. Please let me know if you have any questions!NEXT HOST COMMITTEE MEETINGOur next meeting will focus on two areas: Mass Transit (to determine how to make it easier for low-income or car-free folks to get to the Convention Center) and Marketing (it's time to build our street teams!).Thursday, August 257-9 pmLos Feliz districtRSVP: laurie@...OTHER UPDATES- Mark your calendars for a Host Committee meeting on Monday, September 12 when we'll be joined by Green America's Division Director Denise Hamler, visiting from Washington DC. Details to come....Lastly, big thanks to Akasha and her team for a wonderful meeting space and refreshments last Saturday! And thanks to all of you for joining the cause and helping make Green Festival possible. It is a pleasure getting to know you all!In service,Laurie
