Good suggestion, I will attempt to do so.
Are you thinking we're going to be heavily NA weighted for the next bit?
Maybe to even things out we could look into funding something in europe
some time in 2015.

The quantity of events also may be a concern.  I haven't yet looked up
what our income and expenses were for last year, but I'm going to guess
something on the order of $10,000 give or take a few thousand either
direction.  So, using that WAG, $2-5k for 3 or 4 events a year seems
within reason.

Yeah, we're definitely a bit NA weighted for the next short period. They have already decided that LGM in 2016 will be in London, so it's good for us to just be aware of that. There's part of me that wonders if LGM 2015 could tie into the possible Boston hackfest given the close relative proximity geographically and IMHO it being a good idea to limit the number of events we have (at least at this stage and with the current size of our dev community). I'm definitely not opposed to the Boston event being a completely separate event, we just might have an opportunity to get a few more people there with LGM tied in.

Okay.  Can we count on you to be the event coordinator for this one, to
be the point of contact for attendees and to collect expense info and so
on?  If so, I can take care of writing up the referendum and run it by
you in the next day or two.

Yes, I will be the event coordinator on this one. Thank you for offering to write up the referendum.
