List of projects
Our last working session of the Summit gave each person an opportunity to state what s/he would do with the information and inspiration s/he received at the event. The result is listed below: both specific projects people committed to putting together and a general offering of skills. Many of the people listed below also volunteered to help with others' projects.

The Pagan movement has three main avenues for interfacing: festivals, publications, and the Internet. We are committed to using all these resources to develop better organizations which more effectively meet the needs of our people.
