Honestly, if you think it fits under Code4Lib, then the only thing you need
to consider other than organizing your event is the Code of Conduct:
Basically, you should make participants aware that the Code of Conduct
exists and that participants are expected to follow it. You should also
assign at least 1 male and 1 female to be the initial contact if
participants need to bring anything up. In most events I've been a part of,
we've just designated all the organizers to be possible initial contact
people and it would go from there.
Glad to hear that the interest in regionals is spreading!
Good luck and have fun!
