Introducing Your Conference Organizers

While many conferences tend to run nameless and faceless, the Big (D)esign Conference has been a true team effort.  We have many people leading the way to help make a great conference experience for you.  Let me introduce you to the conference organizers:

  • Brian Sullivan (DFW-UPA President) — conference co-chair
  • Ryan Plesko (DFW-UPA Chair) — conference co-chair, webmaster
  • Danielle Arvanitis (DFW-UPA VP) — Big D Trade Show, registration
  • Cone Johnson (DFW-UPA Membership) — Big D tweetups, conference party planner
  • BJ Allen (DFW-UPA Co-Treasurer) — Volunteer Manager, registration
  • Lara Becker (DFW-UPA Co-Treasurer) — Conference Finances, registration
  • Justin Stasio (DFW-UPA Secretary) — Volunteer Coordinator, Big D tweetups
  • Candy Bernhardt (IxDA Dallas) – (Free))style Coordinator
  • Stephen Anderson (Refresh Dallas) — Conference planning, support
  • Jeremy Johnson (Refresh Dallas) — Conference planning, scheduling

These conference organizers have been meeting regularly.  We even met on a rainy afternoon on Saturday (5/2) to go over some conference plans for three hours in Grapevine, Texas.  We have had support from many other folks, too.  A special thank you to Lou Capone and Paul Sherman for their advice and support, as we have planned this conference.
