MIMIC THIS! When you get invited to events 3000 miles away (or 20 of them just across town), use COPY & PASTE with the really interesting events to seed your own community's plans for similar events. Why start from scratch.... Beg, borrow and mimic! More....
How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
Just becoming aware of it through a friend
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
Community stability and individual development is dependent on cooperation and a 'mutual handshake' relationship with the environment. It just makes sense.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement? What can YOU teach us? What can your GROUP teach us?
I am well versed in online applications, mobile technology, social media, blogging, advanced web copy formatting and online marketing techniques.
Online marketing has been a gold mine for community projects and orgs. It's allowed it to move from special interests supported by the affluent, to something that anyone can participate in. Amazing times!

Suggestions you have for improving our Registration questions. Getting to know you better.
Looks good so far, but you should lead with the questions about what the person in question can offer to the group. It's a minor point, but it can get people engaged enough to complete the questionnaire.

On the local scene, does Columbus (or some broader geographic area) have a Transition-supporting website, or blog, or listserv, or Facebook, or Meetup? If so, it would be spot on for all our members if you would consider including a link to Columbus in our registry of organizations, localities, companies, products, services, Twitterers, Facebooks, Meetups, etc. supporting Transition and Sustainability. Here's the page to create the link -- http://transitioninaction.com/groups/group/new. I'll be glad to help launch and build your link. Do you want to do it?
