Our trend has been to focus on our members - the majority of which is
the technical community. This does not mean that things for non-tech
people/groups are a bad thing - but we do have to focus on those people
who fund us (through the conf) - i.e. what they want and what will
service them.

Having the separate face could be useful in some situations, but could,
on the other hand, just create yet another bunch of admin tasks that
need to be done. I'd love comment from industry people about this.

IMHO spending some energy on a roadshow and encouraging people to get
involved would benefit our community (through more work, greater
exposure etc).
