Thanks for all the positive support and comments. It looks like the end of July in Oregon works the best for most people.
I will craft the outcomes document and send to NEH and LC for approval, which will allow us to support your travel.
I hope to have dates nailed down and a registration form up by the end of the week.

Subject: ChronAm users meeting?
I am querying about interest in an in-person chronam developers meeting. We have some funds that NEH may allow us to use to sponsor such an event. The outcomes would be an agreed direction to support a state-level version of the chronam software and ideally in a format that could be run on AWS for institutions without internal support.
Please respond to me directly, if you would be interested in participating in such a meeting, any particular outcomes that you would like to see, and if you would prefer a meeting in July in Oregon or coupled with the NDNP meeting in September in DC.
If there is sufficient interest, we will set up a collaborative document to confirm outcomes and work on logistics.
