We have had a terrific response to the Aquaponics Conference survey (thank you to all who replied!!) and are now 95% sure that it is a "go"! Over 100 of you have responded either "absolutely" or "yes" when asked if you would attend, and another 62 responded "maybe"!
Our next step is to create a website around the event, and a possible future organization that can perpetuate the event and initiatives that will hopefully come out of it. Here is my question for all of you...
What is your idea for a slogan or tag line for this new website? We need something short and punchy, that will signify promoting aquaponics.Give it your best shot!!
That's all I got.
Aquaponics: Sustainable Food for the Future!
Aquaponics – bringing sea-world home
Aquaponics: A full life
An idea for the next convention: Have an contest on the conventions website for t-shirt designs, those who win could get "awards" that don't cost the association. Like a free event or a an invite to the convention. The t-shirts would be sold while the convention is in progress and profits put to upkeep costs and some charity.
As there are already those within the association that make t-shirts, they might lead this contest and/or have continued sales for these designs.
I for one would love to have an t-shirt with the associations logos when I'm preaching the good word (of aquaponics).
T-Shirts yes great idea.
And I would go for big brimmed hats since I wear those out protecting myself from the sun.
How bout fish cleaning aprons?
Whole range of very useful products that people would buy to support the association.
