Getting Help With Family Reunion Tasks

Wearing Lots of Hats?
Well I guess it's official. I am now recognized as a writer, author, artist and yes, musician.
Titles are one thing, but I actually love what I do. Still if someone were to ask; Mark, how you do it? It would be much easier to just show them the finished product.

I'm the kind of guy who likes to do it all myself. Admittedly that means taking full responsibility for all tasks and assignments. If you don't mind being the fall guy or love the sheer delight of complete exhaustion I highly recommend it. Still even I have to ask for help now and then.

When you're getting close to deadlines getting needed support can seem almost impossible. That said, when winding down the final action items on your reunion task list consider getting support from other family members as soon as possible.

Getting Reunion Task Help
It's important to get help when planning a large family reunion. If attendees are 15 or more don't attempt to plan and manage it all yourself. Your  first step is to put the word out and get volunteers and ideas from the family. Sometimes to get help you do have to barter. People need to know what's in it for them. So put together a list of the benefits of the event and throw in an appreciation gift of some sort if you need to.

Next form a reunion planning group or committee. Then get rock solid guidance from an experienced family reunion planner, join a family reunion workshop or get your hands on a reunion planning workshop text book. How do you go about select a good event planning book? Consider the authors profile.
