Introducing Our Venue Team

In the past, it’s been up to the event lead to book a venue for our spring and fall events. We hoped that event leads would have interesting ideas for venues and it freed up the Board to concentrate on more strategic activities. But we’ve come to realize that finding interesting venues is hard work […]

Edd goes to the Burning Man Global Leadership Conference

In April 2013, the Kindle Arts Society sponsored two of us to attend the Burning Man Global Leadership Conference in  Oakland, California..  It was a great event, with a lot learned, both on a personal level and on an events best practices level.  I can’t stress enough how useful the conference was, the time outside […]

There were minimal differences to how […]

Who the Hell is That??
