Event Details

About the Webinar

STC leaders, your community members want to get together. Let’s make it happen. Using tools like Eventbrite, Basecamp, and Google Drive, our speakers have collectively planned nearly 200  STC events and will share their lessons learned with you.

We will discuss everything from how to get ideas for a good event, to setting up the event online, printing out name badges, and finally paying the speaker. Bring your experience and join in the discussion. Bring your questions and get answers from all attendees.

We will be recording the webinar, so feel free to enjoy the presentation knowing that you can see the recording at a later date. If you cannot make the live presentation, please register for the webinar and receive a link to the recording for watching any time.

About the Audience

This presentation is for STC community leaders, past, present, and future. Whether you hope to plan face to face meetings or online webinars, you will learn some tips and tricks (and mistakes NOT to make) from the speakers and attendees.
