One reason we decided not to attend was because of the arrangement last time. Though Alix made it so all attendees were in the front-ish row, we still all weren't seated at the same actual round table. Those who were in the front of the room were clearly in charge, and everyone else were the guests. To feel more welcomed and under less pressure, everyone should sit at the same table, as the title of this event actually suggests. Katherine & I felt like peons and noticed that not many of the suggestions from anyone at the last one of these actually even went into effect. We'd rather not be relegated like that. Dovetailing from Julio's mention of the MAs, their monthly business meeting has everyone sitting at the same, large conglomeration of tables, with everyone looking like equals.
