Here are my GREAT ideas for programming:
1) Try not to reuse the same event ideas over and over. New, innovative events will attract an audience that might have not otherwise attended.
2) Designate specific jobs for people working events so that people are ready and prepared once they get to the event.
3) Giving out door prizes is a great way to encourage people to come to an event.
4) If you see friends at an event you’re working, try not to spend the whole event talking to them. Greet them and say hi, but make sure you focus on the event and the task at hand.
