Season’s Greetings everyone,
This past Sunday, the embers of Ignite 6 burned on in the minds of our team and a number of attendees who plan to volunteer their time with us for the next round — that’s right! — Ignite Sault Ste Marie 7!
Around the table, great food and conversations were shared. Our guests — seasoned with life experiences of all sorts and fueled by that same openness that inspires all of us who attend Ignite — divulged on topics which ranged from musical preferences to capitalism’s pros versus it’s cons; from the boom of a local farmer’s market to the sights and stories of travel to Southern Ontario, hosting a couch surfer, and of course: what we thought of Ignite and just what it has to offer for the Sault.
We’re close to our goal of doubling team size. To get they, we’re looking for people experienced with marketing and communications, and a project coordinator to guide and support the team in getting things done. A lot of the heavy lifting is already done, it’s a matter of execution on a familiar path. Most of the pieces are already in place. As a team member, you’ll learn effective ways to collaborate and have a lot of fun on the journey.
That said, we want to take the Ignite experience to a whole new level. We want more of Sault Ste. Marie to experience Ignite, through the event and by helping launch other events (Ignite in high schools?). If that excites you, contact us to attend the next meeting in mid January.
Cheers one and all!
~ The Ignite Crew
