BHF Leadership Conference

  • Jul 30, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Okay, "Leadership Conference" may be a stretch, but...

If you're a Buford Highway Foodies event organizer or (really, really) want to become a Buford Highway Foodies event organizer, we'd love for you to attend this event if you can.  First we'll eat some ribs, corn on the cob, and french fries.  If you're so inclined, bring a bottle of wine or some beer!

When we're done stuffing ourselves, we'll go through an outline of goals, concerns, and practices to help guide our little club, keep it fresh and fun, etc. and to help organizers plan events with the greatest of ease.

David will have a laptop connected to the TV, so that we can go over the various Meetup.com tools for taking attendance, creating events in draft, and manipulating RSVP dates to various ends, among other things.

We'll brainstorm event ideas, and we'll map out the rest of 2013 and get some projects on the calendar.

I apologize to the members who wanted to attend this and have other plans.  We had more folks who could make Tuesday, than Wednesday.  I'll record the computer session for you, and we'll take notes on the discussions for you.

If you want to cook with David, arrive at 6:00 PM.  We'll put you to work!  :D

RSVPs will close on Friday, allowing David to shop on Saturday.  See you there!

    I can work anywhere. Perhaps I will sleep somewhere in Buford Highway instead of going back there everyday (almost). 4 events in one week :)

    Uggh. I have a closing that has been pushed forward a week and half- which translates to working late the next several days. I'm really sorry, y'all, but I won't be able to make it.

    Just got a new dog on Sunday and have to build walking the dog after work back into my schedule. I probably won't be able to make it until 7pm. Sorry, I wish I could help with the prep.

    I deleted Atlanta Food Trucks Park event from the draft after they asked for $150 fee to reserve 2 tables (20-24 people).

      I don't personally like Ledet as well, but they may be better able to accommodate our numbers.

      July 28, 2013

    • Valerie A.

      I've never been to Ledet, so since you & Geoffrey like Desta better, let's do it! There are plenty of members who weren't there the first time, so they can have a go at this next one.
