KBOO Board Endorsements
During June's KBOO Board Meeting. The Board of Directors at KBOO decided to endorse the following:

Pacific NW Social Forum9/26-9/28 in Portland, OR

KBOO Wish List

We would love to have 12-24 conference chairs. Stackable is the important word. It's more important than wheels, and you can't have both. Gotta be comfy for those long meetings, meaning a fabric seat, not a hard material and we need them to be sturdy. We're tough on our chairs :}
To Donate email Bruce Silverman or call 503.231.8032.
