Welcome and updates:

Welcome to those who just joined our list. If you have any questions
or concerns, please let us know. Just reply to this mailing.

Our highly-successful Diva Las Vegas 2021 event concluded about three
weeks ago, and we're now in the follow-up phase.

Preliminary plans for Diva Las Vegas 2022 will be announced in December.
. . . . .

Thanks to those who have confirmed their attendance, submitted photos,
volunteered to assist, rated our vendors, etc.

Our confirmed attendance for DLV 2021 as of this writing is a total of
151 individuals, which is our highest attendance since 2014.

The percentage of new attendees this year was the highest it has ever
been.

We've also had the greatest response to our Call For Volunteers (this is
still open, see below) in many years.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Photos of DLV 2021:

As soon as we get our attendance finalized, we'll be sending out links
to the DLV 2021 photo staging area to all who attended.

This will give you, those who attended, to preview the photos before
they are placed for public viewing, and everyone gets a reasonable
number of "No Way!" removal requests for any photos in which they
appear.
. . . . .

Meanwhile, our Call For Photos continues.

We're asking those who attended and took photos to please submit them
for our collection. The Call For Photos is open now and will remain
open through the month of December.

We are fortunate to have the largest and most complete collection of
photos of any of the major TG events, reflecting all of our first 23
years!

There are several ways you can submit the photos:

1. Re-visit your Attendee Information Portal. (This is the link
that you received shortly after you registered.) You will now see
the "Upload Photos" option.

We have a new drag-and-drop uploader this year, plus you can also use
the older uploader if you prefer it.

2. E-mail. Simply attach your photos (any reasonable number to one or
more messages) and e-mail to: dlv@divalas.vegas

3. FTP. If you wish to use this method, write in and we'll give you the
login credentials.

4. Snailmail. You can send prints, a CD/DVD, a USB stick, or whatever.
If you want to do this, write in, we'll send you the snailmail address.
. . . . .

If you have any difficulty submitting your photos, or if you just need
some coaching in order to do it, write to: tech@divalas.vegas (or just
reply to this mailing) and we will help you get your photos submitted.
. . . . .

Big thanks to all who have submitted photos of our 2021 event!

DLV 2021 survey closes shortly:

If you attended DLV 2021, we want your feedback, both good and bad!

If you attended ("participation, however slight") :) and have not yet
taken our 2021 follow-up survey, please do so, as it closes November 30.

You can take the survey here:

https://divalas.vegas/2021survey.html

If you have already taken the survey but wish to add additional comments
and suggestions, please go to the above URL, leave all of the check
boxes blank, scroll down to the comment areas, and submit an additional
comment-only survey response.

We will be posting the results of the survey shortly after December 1.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

DLV mailing list updates:

During December we will be updating our master DLV mailing list.

Many of you, particularly those who have not attended in a while,
will receive a notice to renew your Diva Las Vegas mailing list
subscription.

If you receive this and you DO wish to continue to receive our mailings,
simply reply to it and state, briefly, words to the effect of "Keep me
on the list" or something to that effect.

Please watch for this during the month of December.

Dates for Diva Las Vegas 2022:

Ever since 1997, our annual Diva Las Vegas event has occurred in the
spring.

Holding the event in the spring has never been a policy "in stone" and
the setting of the dates has always been done year to year.

During this year's event, one frequent question and topic of discussion
was along the line of if we would "revert" to holding our next annual
event in the spring, or would we "re-home" things to have our 2022 event
occur approximately one year after our 2021 event.

This decision will be made, of course, by the volunteers of voting
status, but input from all is most welcome.

There are two specific questions on this topic in this year's follow-up
survey. (See survey item above.) However, additional comments on the
timeframe of the 2022 event may be made by either revisiting the survey
link above and entering comments at the end, by posting comments in the
DLV Discussion Forum, or by simply replying to this mailing.

The decision on spring or fall will most likely be known during the
month of December, and a general mailing will be sent out when the dates
of the 2022 event have been officially proposed.

Volunteers:

Our Call For Volunteers remains open.

Thanks to all who have answered the call so far!

All of those great times you just had were made possible because
somebody stepped forward and made those activities happen!

Planning and organization of DLV is done mostly on line via e-mail.
It's interactive and participatory. Volunteers form what we call the
DLVORG group.

We will be starting up the 2021-2020 volunteer group shortly.

The DLVORG group is not at all closed or exclusive. With very rare
exception, it's open to anybody who expresses interest in helping out
with DLV.

DLVORG people participate at the decision-making level, the organizing
and planning level, and at the nuts-and-bolts level.

All of the activities that happened at DLV 2021 were "adopted" by one or
more of our volunteers, who took the necessary steps to make them
happen.

If you want to do your part to make a great thing even better, to give
back what DLV has given to you, and help to run an event that has
literally changed lives, please step forward!

(Those of you who filled out the volunteer form as part of the DLV
follow-up survey do not need to take any more action.)

To volunteer, please do one of the following:

Visit the URL:

https://divalas.vegas/dlvvol1.html

Fill out the screen and check a few things, click SUBMIT, and you're on
your way!

Alternatively, simply send a brief e-mail message to dlvorg@divalas.vegas
and state you wish to volunteer. (Or, just reply to this mailing and
state that you wish to volunteer.)
