Hi there, During our group conference calls in December, we asked for volunteers to form a steering committee to share the follow-up work necessary - to research, to find an attorney, to form a group and to get insurance. Many people wrote comments on this blog to join the group and tons of emails flowed in requesting to be added to the group. However, few people volunteered to do any actual work in order to make this idea a reality. Furthermore, others offered to find attorneys etc. but never got back to us... Since over a month's gone by since we all spoke together and folks are still emailing in to express interest in a group or to join it, I thought I'd post here to give one more shout out for volunteers.
We need a steering committe to work together to see if we can move this forward. To volunteer your time, your expertise, some funds, or your contacts in the insurance field or most importantly TO PROVIDE AN ATTORNEY to our group (or perhaps a lead on how we can find the right attorney), please email to the address you've used before: firstname.lastname@example.org
p.s. if you can not contribute to the above request, please hold off on emailing us to inquire on the status of our progress for now. It is very time consuming to answer all the emails flowing in. We spent MANY hours at the end of December helping folks find interim insurance options. No kidding, it was like a second job for weeks... We've since replied to as many emails as possible in January despite work demands etc. but that doesn't move the ball forward and it takes valuable time. So please get in touch to volunteer or provide some resources - we need to share the work or this simply isn't going to happen.
