The "All About Car Shows" Series:
People Behind the Scene

by Tonza Borden

Now that you have picked a leader and have a plan of action, you can proceed to forming committees.

People Behind The Scene

When the car show visitors see your extravagant event, they won’t see all the hard work performed by the people behind the scene. On the day of the show, these worker bees will be at their assigned post in the midst of fun and festivities. However, getting to this point is no easy task. To have a car show extravaganza—not your ordinary event, you will need extraordinary people.

A Few Good People

They are a select group of men and women who will work on the committees. These individual groups will be the nucleus of executing a successful event. They must be people who like and respect each other to work as a team. A car show extravaganza requires individual stamina, flexibility and cooperation because each committee will be responsible for a component of the event on a time-line.

Equal Opportunity

Each person within the committee will have specific tasks to perform. No one person wants to feel burdened with an unequal share of responsibility. And, everyone wants to have fun, of course. So, list the tasks, ask for volunteer team captains and workers. Then, determine who has special or creative skills that can be used to enhance assignments. People who volunteer usually participate at a higher level than those drafted or made to feel obligated.

When it is all said and done, it is the people behind the scene of your successful event that will make you proud.
