      I agree. Goals would either be taking a stance on these topics and doing something about them (and outlining how) or expaniding on the particulars of the mission statement. Jason, perhaps you can provide an example of a similiar organization's goals with similiar mission statements to get started? Or anyone else for that matter since we have a forum to post them...
      Once we have those, it's time for the next meeting to decide on how we're going organize - democracy? dictatorship? parliament? ;) you know what i mean..
      I think then comes the website as a tool to recruit political and/or nonpolitical heavyweights in the music industry and/or city govn't to facilitate our goals.
      Does this sound like the direction everyone wants to head - or we can also just keep it as an informal grassroots newsgroup/forum as we have it now...

      Are these topics really goals? They seem to be more so areas of research and interest. I think when we were talking about goals it was more so about what the group will be doing on a regular basis, and what direction we are headed in. Should be possibly compare ourselves to similar organizations to refine our goals? There seems to be no point in covering the same types of topics and concerns that other organizations are already working on, right?

      Hi all,

      I know I'm way behind on this but my life has been one bit of
      insanity after another (the blackout didn't help). I promise to get
      on this next week, putting together a list of more specific goals but
      if anyone wants to chime in about them or any others that we've
      forgetten so far, please feel free to.

      Some of them were:

      * Cabaret/Noise laws

      * Affordable Housing for musicians

      * Visa/travel issues

      * Clearinghouse for grants

      * Health insurance for musicians and industry people

      * Working conditions in clubs

      Once we hammer this out, I think we agreed that we can work on
      outreach. Questions? Comments? Thoughts?
