SPE: Northwest Regional Conference 2014
Event Coordinator – Intern
I researched past conferences and analyzed their successes and things that could be improved upon. I presented to potential donors and stakeholders which directly resulted in the funding for two keynote speakers: Rodney Graham & Jess T. Dugan.
Over the course of the planning process, I was the lead on communications with Graham and Dugan and also facilitated their travel and lodging. I played a large role in the shipment and hanging of 18 photographs that are part of Dugan’s series, Transendence II.
I helped to develop the schedule for the conference and found locations for the anticipated size of each lecture. Working with the university staff to coordinate technology, I also filtered through applications of photographers hoping to present.
