The Innovate LIVE interns held their last preparation meeting tonight! This group consists of Mary Baldwin students in all four years doing a variety of majors.
The interns are divided into three groups – Social Media, Logistics, and Public Art Project.
The Social Media team will be tweeting and instagramming under #innovatelive. Follow the hashtag for live updates and pictures of events over the weekend. Also, watch for new blog posts over the next few days and after the conference! We will be featuring many of the Innovate LIVE speakers, local business owners and their thoughts on the conference, and more details on the interns’ activities.
The Logistics Team has been collecting materials for the Innovate LIVE welcome packets. They are also working with the Staunton Downtown Development association to make sure everyone knows the correct locations for the weekend. During the conference, they will be in charge of running sign-up tables.
Lastly, check out the walls of the American Hotel on Saturday to see the AMAZING piece that the Public Art Team is working hard on!
All of the Innovate LIVE interns are so excited for the upcoming weekend! “We’ve got such an awesome group of people who’ve been working so hard to make this possible,” says Betsey Suchanic ’16, Innovate Live Intern Coordinator. “We already have such wonderful energy flowing. We simply can’t wait for everyone to get here and begin taking part in the conference.”
If you have any questions or need directions during the weekend, look for one of the interns – we will all be wearing matching Mary Baldwin t-shirts. We are really looking forward to working with all of you!
