Interested in becoming an Event Organizer for Nerd Fun?

Hello everyone on the Nerd Fun mailing list!

I'm going to have to take a brief hiatus from planning events for Nerd Fun - Boston, probably for the month of May. I really need to focus on getting a new Software Quality Assurance job before the next round of layoffs at my company. Have an idea on an event you want to do? Write to Heather the organizer of Nerd Fun to get Event Organizer permissions so you can then post it to the calendar.

It's pretty simple being an event organizer. You just find an event you want to go on, decide where to meet up before the event, then post it on the calendar. No nametag needed, though it is a good idea to print out and casually hold up a MEETUP sign in a central location before the event.

Looking for event ideas?
