When I was the fan panels coordinator for Anime MNext, I used to send
something very similar to all the moderators, with a caution about managing
time and not going over.

hard to find other people to be on the panel with me. :-) What a difference

unable to attend, but if someone were to do a yuri panel there, it'd be

Subject: [Yuricon] Looking for yuri panels at cons I don't know about!
Hi all -
Con time is getting heated, and I know that there are a gazillion cons
I don't know about. If you know of a con that is going to have a yuri
panel - even better, if you are involved in said panel - PLEASE email
me at anilesbocon01@... with the details, so it can be added
to the Events page (http://www.yuricon.org/events)
For instance, a staffer at Kumoricon (Portland, OR Sept 2-4, 2006)
emailed to say that they are going to be doing one this year. How cool
is that? That'll be going up asap.
If you go to a con that does not have a yuri panel, *now* is a great
time to email the panels programming chair and ask if you can run one.
Most every con is "by fans for fans" and it takes nothing beyond
having a mouth to run a panel. Really. (A brain helps...but it's not a
requirement. lol) Don't email them to ask "how come you don't have
one?" because the answer is, almost 100% of the time - "Because no one
asked for/volunteered to run one." Running a yuri panel is a great way
to celebrate yuri and to meet great new folks.
So spread the word, hand out Yuricon flyers...because at Yuricon we
*do* recruit. LOL

I think Chris Davies (I'm not absolutely sure about Chris) at Anime
North. I'd heard of yuri and shoujo-ai at that point, and you all did
about three panels total on yuri, shoujoai and "what is a lemon?" And
I attended them all. I was commenting to to someone this weekend that
it was 5 years ago, and couldn't believe it's been that long. And
I've been around this list ever since. I'm not sure if I was among
the first 100 members, but if I wasn't, I joined shortly after 100 was
hit. It's been a wild ride.
