B!B!E! Planning Meeting 2022.05.18

From Bike Collectives Wiki



  • Darin
  • Angel
  • Leo
  • Carla
  • Nat


Announce the event on world bicycle day: June 3? Should we try to get someone (else) from Mexico involved in planning/coordinating B!B!E!?

Sending announcements protocol:

  • Nat or Carla can write, or we can do it in collaboration
  • Leo or Nat can translate
  • Angel and Darin can do the wiki, but it would be good for other people to try it. We can take turns taking notes and putting them in the wiki

Carla can take care of correspondence & letting people know. Is fluent in basic Spanish.

  • probably best to send announcements from bikebikeeverywhere@gmail.com
  • thinktank - it really is just a matter of sending emails to thethinktank@lists.bikecollectives.org
  • we also have Buttondown with the big list of organizations and past attendees; to be used only for major announcements (e.g. "We're doing B!B!E! again this year, sign up now!")

Questions/clarification about Volunteer Roles:

  • Fundraising
    • for interp. and language justice
    • we have OpenCollective as a fiscal sponsor now to recieve, hold, and distribute money for B!B!E! in the future
  • Tech support: there are three kinds of it:
    • support before & during the event (how to use Zoom/Discord)
    • managing the websites
    • researching and implementing new tech tools (conference platforms, registration, etc.)

Communications & Outreach:

People Nat knows say the Instagram account not just Tijuana, they were granted access for the duration of the event. Ask Ifny or Godwin for access.

Nat has a lead on who to contact for B!B!CDMX

Nat designed the poster; good for use on social media since people don't often read wall of text w/o images. We could consider posting another version of the flyer with workshop & presenter names later?

Wiki overview: - how to create new pages (by creating a link to a page that doesn麓t exist yet or by searching for it) - using headings (which create a table of contents automatically)

Channels of communication: - wiki - email - instagram

Things To Do

Carla - can you draft messages saying:

  • (ASAP; will send draft tomorrow) we're having another meeting next Wednesday
  • (to be sent on June 3) this is happening, we're having planning meetings, if you麓d like to get involved we'd love to have you

Angel will create a spreadsheet for tracking tasks, or maybe set up Miro, through the bikebikeeverywhere@gmail.com account.
