Have you got in touch with the people running NADWCON2017 to help you publicise? They might have some sort of mailing list... http://nadwcon2017.org

There's also the entirely separate group North American Discworld Connection - https://www.facebook.com/NADWCon/

I might, but the intention isn't to have a convention style event, and its expectations, more a meet-up for NA denizens of the Emporium and similar sites.
