For around 13 years, my wife has been part of a conference for middle school
girls here in Houston called "Expanding Your Horizons".
Last year she was the chairperson, so I asked her for some information on how
that conference was organized. I doubt we'll be able to use exactly their
structure, but this might gve us some ideas on where we will need help.
They organized a set of committees to cover the major pieces of work on the
conference. Here's a list of the committees that they used.
- Might include our sponsorship search.
- Big committee, included venue, food, signs, A/V, etc.
- Goodies and bags
- Handled speakers and such
* External Relations/Communications
We might want to organize a bit differently, but we probably need to cover a
similar range of issues.
