PANEL: So You Want to be a Nerd Organizer at Wizard World Chicago
DATE: Saturday, August 22, 2015
TIME: 3:30-4:15pm

Whether you’re starting a podcast, a meet-up group, an online community, a con, a magazine, or a social movement, being a nerdy organizer of any kind means figuring out a lot of logistics. How do you choose who to work with? Where do you get started? How do you implement rules? How do you choose guests? On this panel, nerd con runners, community organizers, editors, and producers will share their experiences and advice about what’s worked, and what hasn’t.
