    1313The obstacles to increasing participation include:
    1414
    15  * Communications: ultimately, lack of attendance is a political problem - we have to continue working on communicating the importance of technology in the left's strategy for change. This plan does not directly address this obstacle.
    16  * Cost of travel: Our current meetings take place in-person in New York and Mexico City. While these cities contain the greatest number of MF/PL members, they still only account for a tiny fraction of our total membership. Travel and lodging is expensive, and committing to two days of meetings is a lot.
    17  * Poor experience of online participation. Up to now, our meetings have been designed as in-person meetings with an option to participate remotely. However, remote participation has always been an after thought and has never been properly integrated into our agenda and meeting plans.
