Mia is in charge!
PolarTrek teachers are definitely interested, too
Kristina can help coordinate
Random emails work, too
Instructions would be really handy for people
FAQ list would be good
have APECS members let USAPECS know
Jim will work on getting something together
Twitter advertising helpful. Twitter event less helpful.

Possibly remind people that local events are a good thing. Have one event and then send it out and encourage others to do the same?
Boulder might be a good place to start since there is already a large polar contingent there.

Alice will send out emails starting in early January. We need a new co-chair to replace Alice!
