Well, there is a demonstrated tendency for that to be the case, at least
on that page, but the mission statement [0] is significantly more
exclusive. Also in reference to your link, there are *other* communities
that could be included. As well, the speakers and volunteers could
probably be more inclusive. My objection is that there are several areas
where the conference could be more inclusive of all communities, but
they are not. I only propose that we try to work on that for next year.
