LITA Camp Package Task Force


Create a LITA Camp "package" that can be used by an organization or group that wants to host their own LITA Camp event. The package should include:

Overview and guide to desired LITA Camp outcomes

  • How to run un-conference sessions (lightning talks, speed geeks, etc.)
  • Venue logistics (size of meeting space needed, food, computers/projectors, white boards, etc.)
  • Booking speakers - maybe a resource guide to locating appropriate LITA folks
  • Setting up and maintaining the online component that can be replicated for each camp.
  • Marketing/publicity; establishing the LITA Camp brand
  • LITA contacts
  • Identify potential LITA members to act as keynote speakers and try to match those speakers with possible locations for future LITA Camps.
  • Create a cadre of Camp leaders, possibly start with Task Force members who have learned the processes for the facilitation of camps.  Again try to match locations with leaders geographic locations.

The LITA Office will:

  • Set pricing and licencing model(s)
  • Identify organizations or groups that will want to host the LITA Camp
