Announcing a new Meetup for IgniteATL!

What: IgniteATL 2!!!

When: Monday, April 19,[masked]:30 PM

Price: $5.00 per person

Georgia Aquarium
225 Baker St NW
Atlanta, GA 30313

Hello Igniters! The first gathering of IgniteATL 2010 is here!

Put April 19th @ 6:30pm on your calendar and prepare for a fun and informative evening at the Georgia Aquarium's Oceans Ballroom!

The focus of this email (other than convincing you to roll out and bring your friends) is to help us find some stellar storytellers! We don't care if it's about the 'Joint Strike Fighter' program (we'll have that) or the future of distributed corporate brainstorming (we'll have that) or even how to escape from a wet paper bag (hopefully we won't be desperate enough to have that). Competence isn't a prerequisite - just passion! (Bear in mind this is a dictatorship and if you're only passionate about escaping from wet paper bags you'll likely be vetoed.) wink

Remember, the presentations will consist of 20 slides which will scroll automatically every 15 seconds. Each speaker will have 5 minutes to present his or her story. Click this link to get a feel for an Ignite event.

Spread the word! It's going to be an exciting evening with a fantastic opportunity to learn from and network with some of Atlanta's brightest. (We're allowed to make this audacious claim since by virtue of signing up for IgniteATL we either already consider ourselves enlightened or else we wish to be - either way, who is going to argue with us?!) smile

Your options are threefold: 1) Do the brilliant thing and choose to attend 2) Potentially irreparably harm your currently fragile and uninspired mental state by choosing to decline or 3) Ignore this email altogether and prepare yourself for a spamming frenzy the likes of which hasn't been seen since the release of the little blue pill.

The GA Aquarium's Oceans Ballroom will provide an excellent atmosphere to enjoy light snacks and drinks (drinks and parking will be paid for out of your pocket, not ours). The event entry fee will be $5.00 per person.

If you'd like to volunteer please drop us a line and we'll try to find a way to use your talents/skills! Immediate needs? We need a webdesigner to give the IgniteATL website a Heidi-Montag-caliber overhaul! We also need a powerpoint/design guru to coordinate our presentations and give our event some continuity and flare. Let us know if you have some mad skills you're willing to contribute!

We're also seeking sponsors! If your organization would like to get your brand in front of hundreds of knowledge-hungry world-changers-in-the-making drop us a line and we'll pass along our 'Sponsorship Opportunity' document for your consideration. We'll be recording the entire event so your sponsorship investment will continue to produce well into the future via embedded logos shown on Youtube, Ignite WorldWide, Meetup, etc.

We'll be sending out regular updates leading up to the event! Get ready to Ignite!!!
