Selecting a team

Organizing a CSTS event is a big responsibility and a lot of work, which goes a lot smoother with someone to help you.

First off, make sure you find a second person to help you. This person should be registered as a "second in command" and acts as a backup contact. If we can’t get hold of you, then we can make sure you are OK by asking them.

Next, find a crew. To put on a successful event (without it taking over your life and stressing you out) you need some help. We recommend a minimum of three people to spread the work around. So, how do you find these helpful people?

Ask your friends and family. Check out the web for local Browncoat groups. Ask for help on Firefly/Serenity message boards and online communities. You’d be surprised at how easy it can be to find a crew once people know you’re looking.

Once you’ve got your crew together, find a time to meet. If possible, a face to face meeting is best. This should be in a relaxed environment, so that you can all get to know each other. If there are many people willing to help you out, utilize them.

The more people you have on board to help, the easier it will be for you as an organizer, and the better your event will end up being, if only because you are less stressed.

Yes, this is one of the real musts. Crew is everything. Know your talent. Find your artists, musicians, writers, speakers, etc. I'm a huge fan of finding your own, locally grown talent and giving them a chance to shine, create and contribute.

I was lucky to have a large committee and to also have people who weren't part of the formal organizing committee but still had talents to lend. A volunteer, not part of the committee, made that lovely banner below for us. The more committee members, the harder it can be to decide something but the wider pool of talent you have to draw from.
