From Alan Clayton – Chair.
1) We now gave 6 core project teams with nominations for “team coordinator”. Right now the ‘team coordinator” needs simply to contact the other names in the group and arrange to meet for a coffee/beer/cocktail/other, and write a 300 word intro to the 1st project this group is going to undertake. We hope each coordinator will make their presentation on 25th at the initial public meeting.
I will do my best to keep an overview of how all this progresses. If you have other nominations or want to contribute and are not on the list, just shout !! (or better still just go ahead and reach out – emails above). I’m sure it’ll be chaotic, but if everyone contributes a little, amazing things will start to happen.

2) We now plan a PUBLIC MEETING for Jan 25th – see invitation text below – and please share…
Also please click on Future Kinsale facebook page and invite others – this is important.
And finally please check out the linked blog where coordinators can update the community with progress and news of their projects.
3) ASAP and no later than JAN 6th – each group needs to prepare a 3 minute “pitch” to share details of 1st project in your area of focus. The 3 min need to answer the questions..1) Why this project ? 2) What is the project exactly ? and 3) What are the benefits to the community ?
Please send this text back to me by Jan 6th, so we can publish them and edit them together for Jan 25th.
Easy right !!
GOOD LUCK TO US ALL IN 2019
