  • Will I earn enough money to cover all of my expenses?
  • Will there be enough participation/ competition for the attendees to have a good time?

While we can't predict the outcome of your event, we can help you get started on the right foot.  Encourage attendees to sign up early!  This is the best way to predict the success of your event with enough time to make adjustments if necessary.  Here's how to do it:

January 31, 2014 by Ann Boss Maycock

staging_lights_2With the excitement of a new season (and possibly a reality check from the weather), you might not realize that it's time to get down to business! And if you haven't started your season yet, it's fast approaching.

We've put together a pre-season checklist to help you prep for a winning season:

3. Set up a membership event- Get this annual pain in the b*tt task out of the way and make it easier for you and your members by accepting online membership renewals.

2. Create a gift certificate event - There's a whole year of holidays and special occasions ahead of us (Valentine's Day is just around the corner).  Give your participants the chance to get a gift they really want!

1. Get your events listed early - Do it NOW!  900,000 people looked at our calendar last year and they're already determining which events they're going to attend this year.

Many attendees are planning for the entire season, both budget wise and time-wise, right now.    And they're coming to our National Calendar (all 900,000 of them) to look for events.  So if your event is not listed, chances are they're choosing an event from another organization.
