To Have a PoWeR Seminar in Your City
1. Find an AIDS Services
Organization (ASO) that is willing to sponsor the seminar.
(The ASO will help to promote the event to their clients.)
2. Give us at least 2
months notice and we will help you to find funding through unrestricted grants
to pay for the event's expenses.
3. Find a location.
This can be a community-sponsored room, a hotel ballroom, or other public location
where the seminar can take place.
4. Send us copies of
any local gay/lesbian/HIV/community publications or magazines so that we can
see if we can place ads, and if we can get them to publish an article that promotes
the event. (An article can typically double attendance numbers.)
6. We are happy to create
our own flyers, as we usually do a better job than the ASO.
Details we need to
make promotional fliers or ads:
a. Name of ASO we are working with
b. Address of the event location
d. Time when the doors open
e. Time when food is served (If we can get the funding, a dinner or light
meal will be served)
f. Time when lecture starts (our lectures can be 1 to 2 hours long)
g. RSVP contact name and phone number
h. Email address for ASO, or contact at ASO
While Michael and Nelson
lecture together sometimes, for budgeting purposes most lectures are done with
one or the other person. For large events in major cities where there is sufficient
funding we try to lecture together.
Nelson Vergel at: firstname.lastname@example.org (Nelson
can also lecture in Spanish.) Read Nelson's

Find out about the
new Survivor's Seminar. Nelson generally does
this lecture alone, but for larger venues or bigger cities, Michael will lecture
with Nelson and specifically detail hormones and nutrition.
