The Special Events Committee had its kick-off meeting earlier in July (on an auspicious day 7-7!) and we’ve been rounding out our numbers with a good crew of enthusiastic people ever since. I am really looking forward to working with the sage guidance of Chris, Operations Manager and veterans like Angela. Last year’s captains Kristine and Lauren are also back in force, along with a fresh and fantastic crew of new members that bring with them their professional, social and mega experiences.
Two of our long time Special Events volunteers, Rebecca (Red Carpet Reception captain) and Krysta (Press Launch captain) will be passing on the torch to a new generation of captains this year. You will be hugely missed and thank you so much for your dedication over the years! Our brainstorming has been wildy creative and encouraging as venue-locking deadlines approach and we are looking forward to putting together 10+ kick-ass events for the special 15th anniversary this year.
Welcome to our 2011 Special Events Committee:
