It’s Time to Pass the Reins For #EdCampMadWI

Four years ago, I caught a tweet from the incredible Jess Henze wondering if anyone would be interested in bringing an EdCamp to the Madison, WI area.  Figuring I had nothing to lose, I immediately replied yes not knowing what to expect.  Soon Kaye Henrickson and Emily Dittmar joined our team and for the past three years we have been the driving force behind this incredible event.

Now with huge moves (Goodbye Jess, Montana will love you), almost new jobs (Emily spreading her magic in Muskego) and crazy busy lives (how many things can Kaye magically organize?), we are ready to pass the reigns.  This event should not die out, but instead should be taken over by a new team of amazing people that love EdCamp as much as we have.

So leave a comment, tweet us, or email us and let us know if you are interested.  To the lucky people who take over, we will give you the domain, the background info and any support you need.  If you are just curious, you can contact us as well.

I am so thankful to the three women I got to run this with.  We have shared many emails, voxes, Google docs, laughs, and even frustration, but it has never been a chore working with you.  You are why education has a chance to make a difference.  You are true leaders and I am proud to have been a part of this with you.
