- content creation for the website and social media
- accounting, we need an accountant preferably one with non-profit expertise
- go teachers in schools, and volunteers to get school programs started
- contractor, we are looking at properties and need help estimating the fit out costs
- proposal writers, we’ll be submitting proposals to foundations and grant funding agencies
- marketing and event promotion
RE: Working with young beginners.
It would be interesting to hear what age groups people are working with. The K-12 designation was more to say the topic was working with the local schools and school districts and to distinguish it from collegiate go which is also very active in the DC area.
The Massachusetts Go Association researched doing a group purchase of go clocks from China. The clock they decided on was the LEAP pq9903. They go for about $40 online and with the group purchase we will be able to get them for about $20. The NGC is ordering 65.
