Re: Dinner Meeting Attendence

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Shafat,
Suggestions for presentations that would encourage more attendance: 
	Circulate a list of technical topics that are encountered in a typical design
office including an "others" item (check-off lists help stimulate thought and
are easier to respond to) at the SEAOSC meetings and on-line. These would be
items that the respondents have had trouble with, or that there is a curiosity
as to how other offices handle them. Then take the top 10 most popular items,
and ask for volunteers to share their solutions. For podium-shy engineers and
shorter solutions, panels would be one presentation method where several
volunteers would share the stage.
	Ask around to plan checkers for volunteers to share gripes, horror stories,
humorous stories, words of advice, etc. Again, panel groups may help the non-
ToastMaster types.
