I spoke with the CoM VP of Marketing!! YIPPEE! We had a wonderful conversation about different aspects of the potential convention. The both of us were full of enthusiasm, and truly she seemed to love the idea. She is going to discuss it in a meeting this week, and respond to me hopefully before the end of the week.

Through her encouragement, we have a few questions we would like answered in order to better organize our thoughts on who would be interested in joining the convention. Please take a moment and answer some questions, and please feel free to discuss ideas that you may have that are not mentioned.

1. Would you be able to attend in the US.
2. What would you like to see out of a convention held by your peers.
3. When would it be ideal for you to participate (ie next summer, this winter etc)
4. Would you be interested in sharing rooms in order to save money?
5. LOCATION! We have narrowed it down to Vegas or Chicago, would either of these places interest you?
6. How long? IE weekend, 1 day, 2 days, 3 days...week???


That is all the questions for now.....if we think of more, we will be adding them. But please, keep this positive note. There are many of us working on this, and would love to have some great positive feed back! This could be an incredible opportunity! Please let us know any other ideas you may have that could make this happen!

*EDITED TO ADD*
Please come join our group! Show support, share ideas, we truly DO want to make this happen. The more people involved, the more chance we have!

Oh i like the idea of a breast feeding specialist! and also if she can help with women who somehow feel inadequate for not being able to breast feed, what the best solution and formula for them could be.

1. only in US. All I can afford. Don't have a passport anymore.
2. Convention - to me they include samples from companies [new lines of things for ppl to test] as in bottles/cups/diapers/baby foods etc. the "stuff" that makes our lives easier. then there's the information. lactation consultant awesome. maybe someone dealing with depression after birth - like a self help motivational, maybe even a spice it up with your spouse motivational. feel like a woman, not a mothering machine. potty training maybe? just pick things women struggle with as a mom and need help with. there's a shitload of things
3. this winter, i will still be nursing and stinker hasn't taken a bottle yet and...it's bam, right here's winter. no time for me to make sure i can save and get there by the time it's set and honestly, we need more prep than two months. i actually think next FALL is a better time. like late summer so it's not ungodly hot anywhere.
5 - ok. i've already been called dibs on. lol. Yes, sharing to save money always a good thing. although....i'm expecting to see that coffee pot!
6. three days to a week if it's all of com. women can come and go whenever they can fit it in their schedules but make a majority of it and main, big speakers ont he weekend since it's likely that's when most can get there.

It would just be so inspiring and awesome to see so many moms from different walks of life who are all going through or have gone through the same things!

#1. Yes
#2. I would like to see a guest speakers on parenting, perhaps one on nutrition and meal prep, someone to talk about pets and kids, a nurse to talk about healthcare.

#3. I'm good anytime so i'd just suggest if it is going to be winter have it in Vegas, if it is going to be summer, have it in Chicago.
#4.. yes.. I call dibs on Amy!
#5, i prefer Chicago, but if it is going to be wintertime, i'd rather it be in Vegas.
#6, i think a long weekend would be good.. so say if doing it in the summertime, try for 4th of July, or Labor Day, if in the Winter try for MLK Day or President's day weekend.

And if you want me to cut and paste this to the other link, i can/will.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

oh - and wherever it's at, advertise locally so tons of local moms can get in on it and maybe start using CoM. :D

That would be awesome Barb, could you cut and paste? It would be great to have it in Lets make it happen! I love the suggestions that you had for the speakers. Some of them we already have in mind, but I love the ones about food and nutrition! Fantastic! Also thinking of having a breastfeeding specialist. We will see!
