How To Get Everyone Involved In Family Reunion Planning

A family reunion planner carries the torch handed on by the previous generation. Accept this opportunity with dignity and grace, for it is an honor and a great trust is bestowed. 

That means picking up where they left off. Some former reunions planners keep detailed notes regarding prior family reunion planning, organizing, and management. Consulting their notes, journal, and contacts can get you off to a good start.

Getting everyone involved can be a challenge. As my book, Fimark's Family Reunion Planner explains, be fully inclusive of members in your immediate household, siblings, cousins, parents, aunts, and uncles as well as extended family. 

Send out a survey with some suggestions regarding the reunion theme, itinerary, and associated activities. Ask for more feedback and openly commend those who contributed.

That said, plan activities everyone will enjoy. Above all, once everyone is on board form a family reunion committee and solidifying plans and activities as soon as possible.
