I'm supporting a proposal to create a new Q&A website for anyone running or interested in running a user group or technical community to connect and discuss the business of running a user group or technical community..
It's built on the same software as stackoverflow.com, a hugely popular site where over seven million programmers help each other with difficult programming problems. On Stack Overflow the audience votes for the best answer, so the answer you want is usually right at the top, not on page five.
I'm hoping that a site for anyone running or interested in running a user group or technical community to connect and discuss the business of running a user group or technical community. would have the same kind of network effect and turn into an amazing resource.
The proposal process is going on here:

Community Leadership Town Hall - Tulsa
November 11th, 2010 – Jay Smith
In many towns and cities across the country the town hall is the center of the community. The town hall is where the local governments keep offices, serves as the main base for the Mayor, and is where citizens of the community come to work with the official representatives to share issues, ideas, and solutions that can make their community better.
The Community Leadership Town Hall brings this concept to community leaders in your area. The evening will be filled with discussions about issues, ideas, and solutions regarding creating, maintaining, and growing user groups and technical communities. This will be a highly interactive night where everyone will have a chance to suggest a topic and voice their opinion.
Bring your questions, ideas, issues, and willingness to share to the Community Leadership Town Hall - Tulsa.
If you are a current or aspiring community leader please join us for the Tulsa TechFest pre-event on November 11th, 2010 from 7 – 10 PM.
