- Essential Tips for Organizing Conferences & Events
by Alison Robinson, Sally Brown, Phil Race, Fiona Louise Campbell
Learning how to organize a conference or event is something that is best achieved by doing it. However, the problem is that getting an event wrong is a very public affair!
Many conferences and training events are organized by individuals who have little experience of doing so. Some have the task thrust upon them without being offered adequate training, and have little idea of the time, experience and care needed to plan and manage events effectively -- leading to dissatisfied delegates and costly mistakes.
The authors of this book draw upon their extensive experience of organizing numerous events around the world, and have compiled an engaging, accessible, step-by-step guide to planning a conference or event, addressing all the traps and pitfalls so you don't have to.
It is packed with practical tips, guidelines, case studies, action checklists and useful sample material and covers all the key areas involved in organizing an event, including: managing, planning, contingency planning, targeting, costing and budgeting, administeration, assuring quality of content, evaluating, disseminating and ensuring continuity.
Whether you are a newcomer to organizing conferences or events or a seasoned professional wanting to brush up on your skills, this book will be an invaluable resource.

- Look at Christian Home School Co-op Groups, A
by William F. Denman PhD
Bill and his wife, Donna, home schooled their children, one of which was special needs, for over sixteen years and were involved in a Christian home school co-op for several of those years. This book takes a brief look at Christian home school co-op groups, although not originally intended to look just at Christian co-op groups. It is based on a two-part survey, the first part specifically about various aspects of the co-op itself. The second part of the survey was to find out information about the home schooling families that were involved in the co-op movement itself. The results were surprising in some respects, while not so surprising in others. Home schooling families not involved in a co-op, Christian or otherwise, as well as those families that are already involved will find this short book of interest and are all encouraged to pass as much information along to others after they read this material.
