Listen To Your Mother: Indianapolis- The Planning Stage, part one

So it’s been a week, and Judy and I are already making BIG plans. I’m going to chronicle our journey for a a few reasons:

  • When we feel overwhelmed, we can look back and see all that we’ve accomplished
  • I have a bad memory and chances are it will be good to have some notes along the way
  • I am also doing this so that a person toying with the idea of applying to host next year is able to see the process and get the inspiration to make it happen in their city.

So. Task numero uno- Find a venue.

Judy and i have been considering venues since the day we got the email announcing the Indianapolis would be on this year’s roster. There are beautiful performance spaces all over town, and the event coordinators we’ve been in contact with could not be more helpful or friendly.

We keep hearing that all we need are a podium and a microphone, and chairs for the audience.

We are touring our top two spots on Monday. Once we have the location nailed down, you’ll be the next to know the time and place!
