volunteer Google Apps admin, with the following responsibilities:
1. Administer FSP mailing groups like Doers, Organizers, etc.
Responsible for adding and removing group members.
2. Manage FSP mail accounts. Back accounts up when they are retired.
Create new accounts as needed.
3. Provide general Gmail and GApps support, e.g. password resets,
assistance in using the tools, etc.
In addition, there are a number of small projects waiting in the queue:
1. Guide the transition of FSP mailing groups to Google (already in
2. Clean up and repurpose unused email accounts.
3. Drive adoption of GMail and Google Apps as the standard platform
for FSP business
All you need is a can-do attitude, and an interest in technology. No
prior experience required - you'll work with teammates experienced in
Google Apps. This is a great opportunity to get experience (you can put
on your resume) with the new "Business Operating System" that's taking
over the world.Report lists new pro-liberty NH laws
Are you a policy wonk or aspiring statistician? If so, you will love the
2011 New Hampshire Liberty Related Bills Report
<http://freestateblogs.net/node/12690> . The Report lists the 2011
pro-liberty related bills that are now law in NH. While the FSP does not
get involved in politics, some people that moved to NH as part of the
FSP are involved in politics. Some of those people were the authors and
primary sponsors of some of the pro-liberty bills listed in the Report.
The FSP monthly sign-up statistics are available
Check out the monthly sign-up statistics
<http://freestateproject.org/about/membership/signup_stats> broken down
by the various ways people learn about the FSP. The top reason given so
far this year by new FSP participants is John Stossel. The March 24th
edition <http://www.youtube.com/embed/evraJp70CUs> of Stossel's self
titled TV show on Fox Business covered the FSP. Thank you John Stossel
for being the number one recruit for the FSP so far this year.

Action of the Month
Ask three people you know to become a Friend of the Free State Project
<https://freestateproject.org/join> . A Friend is someone that likes the
idea of the FSP. If someone signs up as a Friend, it just means that
they like the FSP. There is no commitment for a Friend to move to NH or
do anything else.
Some of you may be scared by the idea of asking someone you know to
announce that they support your cause, but the reward is more than worth
it. You likely know people right now that support liberty. Maybe they
have wanted to be a Friend of the FSP for a long time but they were
waiting for you to mention it to them. Maybe they didn't know they had
the option of just becoming a Friend and not a full-fledged Participant.
Give the people you know that option.
Go ahead. Take a chance. Spread the word. Get someone else excited about
the FSP and signed up to receive the FSP News, this newsletter, by
becoming a Friend of the FSP. Feel free to make suggestions or comments
on the FSP Forum

<http://freestateproject.org/> The Free State Project is an effort to
recruit 20,000 liberty-loving people to move to New Hampshire. We are
looking for neighborly, productive, tolerant folks from all walks of
life, of all ages, creeds, and colors who agree to the political
philosophy expressed in our Statement of Intent, that government exists
at most to protect people's rights, and should neither provide for
people nor punish them for activities that interfere with no one else.

The Free State Project (FSP) is an effort to recruit 20,000 pro-liberty
activists to move to New Hampshire, where they will exert the fullest
practical effort toward the creation of a society in which the maximum
role of government is the protection of life, liberty and property. The
work of creating and sustaining such a society in New Hampshire is the
job of residents, including project participants, not the Free State
The FSP does not endorse any specific changes to government or
strategies to achieve them. The FSP does not take positions on issues,
candidates, legislation, places to move within New Hampshire, tactics or
methods of action. The one stipulation the FSP does make is that people
who promote violence, racial hatred, or bigotry are not welcome.
Reporting by the FSP on participant activity or NH events on the
website, in the newsletter, or in any other place does not represent
support or endorsement and may not portray the diversity of opinions and
activities that exists among participants.
