Meeting 25 – Volunteer Shirts!

Written by angelo on June 4, 2008 – 8:56 am -

During meeting 25, we announced our latest event sponsors (Viddler and Blip.tv), plans for lunch at Damon’s next door to ITT and finalizing plans for the night before (Dinner with organizers and volunteers, visit ITT and setup any last minute tables then hang out at the bar at the Damon’s).

Staff T-shirtWe talked about volunteer and organizer T-shirts, we’re going to go with a blue shirt. Since last weeks meeting, Brian designed a blue shirt with the word ‘staff’ on the front and the PodCamp Ohio logo on the sleeve. We also decided that volunteers and organizers willing to buy their own t-shirt can. If you’re going to be volunteering and don’t have the means to buy your own T-shirt, please contact angelo (angelo [at] podcampohio.com) and we’ll work out getting you a Staff shirt ordered.

We also discussed event bags and possibly not getting them, but since the last meeting Angelo found a vendor who sells branded 9″x12″ at an affordable cost.

The remainder of the meeting we go on a tangent about the Smurfs, the Lost season finale that directly followed this meeting and The Office.

Meeting 24 – Survey Results!

Written by angelo on June 4, 2008 – 8:35 am -

During meeting 24 (Held on May 22), we discussed plans for meeting volunteers the day before PodCamp. This is in addition to the last meetup on Saturday, June 21. We also discussed how we will organize volunteers for the day of the event. We decided to plan on having lunch at Damon’s next door to ITT. We’ve confirmed with Damon’s, they are ok with our music guest playing on the Damon’s patio. We also decided to keep the intro session to 20 minutes that way the event is focused on the sessions. Dave and Busters will only have 100 coupons for us to distribute to PodCamp attendees. If that remains, we will plan on giving out the Dave and Busters coupons at the end of the event.

We also talked about the current results of the sessions survey. As of current, the survey has ‘Strategies for blogging, podcasting and social network marketing’, ‘What NOT To Do. Podcasting and other Social Media Anti-Tips’ and the ‘podcasting 101′ sessions have over 40% interest. We may plan on holding these sessions in the larger rooms. If you would like to help us better plan the sessions, please take a moment and fill out our Sessions Survey.

Last part of the meeting we discussed the past weekends meetup on May 17. Following the meetup we visited ITT and did some video recording of the facilities then hate lunch at the Damon’s next door.
