Hosting a Future Jam.
Interested in hosting a Jam? In the early days of the Jamboree,
finding a Jam host was often an effort. For the last few years, there have
more volunteers than Jams, which is not a bad thing!
Planning must start significantly
in advance of the event.
To help ensure the selection is open, fair and available to everyone, the
following table will be available on the website. As situations can change
over time, it likely will be best not to project more than about 4 years in
advance. The following have volunteered as Jamboree hosts. After
each Jam in October, another year will be added to the table... if a year is
blank that means it is open to potential hosts.
Jam 2013 - Mike
Goldsmith (San Antonio)
Jam 2014 - Mae Neihouse
& Nikki Simpson (co-hosts, Houston)
Jam 2015 - Bea
Imken & Lissa Bengtson (co-hosts, San Antonio)
- Cheryl Rogers (Houston)
Using feedback from some past Jam coordinators, some general guidelines are being drafted to help
potential hosts. Hopefully, the draft will be available in a couple of
months to be sent to Texas teachers for their input.
If you are interested in hosting a
Jamboree and would like your name included on the list, please send a note to
Charles Archer (email@example.com).
Questions, suggestions, and comments are welcome
