Here are some supplies that programming needs:

  • Milk and cookies, if Jane Yolen is doing Bedtime Stories
  • A projector and laptop computer for artist slideshows
  • A walkie-talkie or other means of contact for at-the-con emergencies. A cell phone may work for this purpose.
  • Table tents, those stand-up cards with people's names on them to make it clear at panels who's who. Ideally, the front of a table tent should include the person's name in very big, easy-to-read script and the name of the panel in slightly smaller script. The back should ideally include the name of the panel, who's on it (as a cheat-sheet for when you forget your fellow panelists' names) and a schedule.
  • Badge labels, little sticky labels that have every programming participants' schedules (and names) printed on them. This is a very nice thing to have, if you possibly can. These can either be directly affixed to people's badges during the registration packet stuffing process, or left for participants to affix however they want in the Green Room. Which course you take is essentially a political question.
