Staffing Your Convention, Management Level

Friday Dec 06   01:30 PM to 03:25 PM (1 hour 55 minutes)
Fiesta I-II Streaming Room
You cannot run a convention without a management layer but how do we try to make a working organization out of the different types of people who are available? There are balancing considerations when staffing your convention not to mention the mixing of local people, experienced people and political appointees (and many times those are all different people!). Can you recognize a 'diamond in the rough' - discovering and taking a chance on new people and where best would they fit in? What do you do when the hiring leaves weak spots in your organization and can you support the area in other ways? 

This workshop will deal with the considerations and planning that goes into staffing your upper management positions.
