  • Booking speakers - maybe a resource guide to locating appropriate LITA folks
  • Setting up and maintaining the online component that can be replicated for each camp.
  • Marketing/publicity; establishing the LITA Camp brand
  • LITA contacts
  • Identify potential LITA members to act as keynote speakers and try to match those speakers with possible locations for future LITA Camps.
  • Create a cadre of Camp leaders, possibly start with Task Force members who have learned the processes for the facilitation of camps.¬† Again try to match locations with leaders geographic locations.

The LITA Office will:
