Lots of questions, I know. :)
Tricia set up the event in the All Community Leaders group. I can probably set it up as an event here as well, but it will be duplication. (Not sure there's any way to have an event display in multiple locations.) I'll give it a shot. After all, we are in perpetual beta.
It's not appearing in my list of Events anywhere. I have to go into a group to view it. I hadn't seen the posting in the other group. I also received this as an email. Definitely getting the message out. ;) Tricia added it as a discussion. You added it as an announcement, which seems technically more correct. I thought perhaps an announcement with a date would become an event automatically. Your formatting is better than Tricia. Did you do something or is the editor in Announcements prettier than Discussions?
I would like things with dates to be under events. You might forget which group announced something.
Steve S.? Are you here? Know anything about scheduling events from announcements?

This is great info, Ben. Thanks for sharing!
Using Google Docs (or Dropbox) is a great idea. It seems a shame that our new site for collaboration is not able to provide us with a way to share docs. I hope there is a way - a Joomla! module, for example - that we can use to keep things together. (Nothing against G.D. - just the principle.)
I've placed the plan in Google Docs and provided access to it for both of you. Let me know if you're able to access it.

How about ways to accurately measure the success (or failure) of a plan?
Overall success/failure, or specific parts of the plan? Some of it's fairly straightforward--number of Twitter followers, LinkedIn group members, attendees at meetings. Another way to measure is to ask attendees where they heard about the meeting, etc.
Let's hear from some of the group members...
