    2016 - A Look Ahead and Upcoming Events

    As we draw closer to the start of 2016, we're already hard at work lining up events for the year. Some of the events we know so far are: Arisia (Jan) Boskone (Feb) Anime Boston (Mar) PAX East (Apr) Northeast Comic Con (Jun) I've also reached out the following cons to see if we can get a presence: MASSive Con (Jun) Walker Stalker Boston (Jul) TotalCon (Feb) So with that being out there, we should start looking to strengthen our forces. We need new blood. We have a great core of people working in the guild, however those core people need help. Can everyone take some time and look at your fellow extra life friends, maybe approach them about coming to our meetings, volunteering for some events. You all know your extra life friends, and you probably know which of them would be passionate about EL. Lets start networking those people into the guild. On top of the efforts to strengthen our team, we will be going through some leadership changes this year. More to come on that in the next few weeks. These changes are good, and we hope that some new leadership experience/insight will re-energize the group. Please, take some time, engage on here your thoughts of how we can strengthen and grow this team. Any incentives to keep guildies going, or efforts to retain guildies. Let hear it.. Lastly, THANK YOU again for everything and everyone that made 2015 a success. Let's do it all again in 2016 and do it bigger and better!!

    Wizard World ComiCon Pittsburgh

    until
    We will be recruiting at Pittsburgh Comicon! Details are not completely ironed out yet, so watch this space for updates to this opportunity! Update from guild president: "Bad news. We will not have a table at Wizard World Comic Con Pittsburgh this year. Apparently due to the national partnership they're working on with Extra Life, and with Pittsburgh being a new Wizard World show, there were a lot of delays in getting things finalized. We were going to be part of the Gaming Center, as they have done for other Extra Life guilds, but because of issues with planning on Wizard World's part, the Gaming Center was cancelled for the Pittsburgh show. And even though I submitted our fan group application back in April (!) and have been handed off between 5+ different people (!!) since then, all of whom were excited to have us, there is now no room available in the non-gaming areas because they didn't plan on us having to be there. I'm working on maybe at least getting us some badges and seeing if we can hand out flyers and do sign-ups in common areas, even if we're not allowed to set up a table. Will keep you all posted with what I find out."

    Upcomming Event Ideas - Tell Us!!

    Folks. Got a local event or a convention in your area that you think we should have a presence at? Tell us about it. Its not possible for the leadership to know about every con and event out there. So this is your time, your chance to suggest places and events for us to try and get a presence at. Tag @stodd.ELBoston and @Chi and let us know.
  24. Howdy all! In two weeks, we'll have booths at the SL Gaming Con and at the YouTube convention in Orem, CVX Live. If you're interested in manning the booth with some other Extra Lifers to try and talk to passerbys about what Extra Life does, and encouraging them to sign up, participate, and fundraise, then check out the Google Doc sign ups below! The Docs have all the info but I'll reiterate - if there is only one slot you can (and want to) volunteer during and it is taken, please email me and we will rearrange. If there is time you can (and want to) volunteer during that doesn't fit exactly into a shift, please email me and we will accommodate. If you can't make it to either event, that is 100% okay! There will be more opportunities throughout the fall SL Gaming Con: https://docs.google.com/…/12g7WaDUDCZaU9D1qG1zi6qM9j7…/edit… CVX Live: https://docs.google.com/…/1mtjvbEQ7YxlHhoNWQHpNiGWyU9…/edit… Thanks again! EDIT: Apologies - I should also explain that we have complimentary badges, 3 for Gaming Con and 2 for CVX Live. So you will not need to buy tickets to Gaming Con/CVX Live if you wanted to kind of see the hubbub and also donate your time. We would need the exhibitor badges back after your shift so other volunteers could use them.Thanks!
