Creating Change 2014 Begins...
Starting at 12 noon CST, the members of the Houston Host Committee and our 600 volunteers (another record) will be gathering at the Hilton Americas until 6 PM today to undergo mandatory training.
We are prepping to welcome the anticipated record 4000 people headed to H-town by plane, train, bus and automobile for Creating Change 2014.
We'll have our choice of a one hour session that happens between 12-6 today and I'm looking forward to it. As one of the co-chairs of the Racial Diversity Committee, I have an additional supervisory suite training session I'll be attending on Wednesday afternoon at 5:30 PM.
And yes people, you knew with Creating Change being inside Loop 610 until February 2 that not only was I not going to miss this 26th annual conference happening in my hometown, but I will be taking part in several panel discussions and events throughout this weekend.
Even Kate Clinton is excited about coming to the Lone Star State's largest city..
But it's just another sign that what we've been planning for nearly a year in terms of Creating Change Houston style is really about to happen. Our January 29 conference start date is rapidly approaching and as we get closer to that date we as a host committee get more excited by the nanosecond.
But one thing we are breathing a major sigh of relief about is the deep freeze that whacked H-town happened on last Thursday and Friday and not this week.
