I think this sounds great.

I think one or two outside speakers would be great and just like we
had a bit of budget for this for DC14, we could totally budget it
for 2015 to have some people speak.

Just to clarify: the raffle at LCA takes about 1–2 minutes at the
end of the announcements. It's also not a sponsored/commercial
activity. It's just a bit of fun and usually very exciting to
everyone, if the selection of prizes is good.

I hope you'll attend at least once to see, and if only because you
might be able to suggest improvements.

Absolutely. Allison's suggestion that all announcements should also
be available online as well is important. In fact, we should just
create a wiki page or so during the orga meeting and then "present"
it at the plenary session.
