If you answered both of those questions with a 'yes', then please let me know if you'd be interested in volunteering some time to work on Potlatch. It's a terrific convention, which raises a lot of money for scholarships to Clarion West. Working on a convention is, I suspect, a lot of fun, and a great way to meet other people with similar sf-nal interests. If you're a writer or artist in the field, it may be particularly helpful for networking. Also, and again, it should be a lot of fun. :-) If you're interested, drop me a note, and I'll forward your name and e-mail to the fabulous Debbie Notkin, who will contact you with more details.
