Step 1: Is Coordinating a Seminar Right for You?
In order to be a successful coordinator, you should
- Enjoy working with people.
- Be willing to speak in front of a group.
- Be organized.
- Be able to remain calm when things don’t go as expected.
- Have a basic understanding of electronic devices.
- Have a cell phone you can bring to the seminar.
- Have readily available email access to have instructions sent to you before the seminar date.
Step 2: Coordinator Overview
By coordinating a HalfMoon Education Inc. seminar, you will receive a reduction in your seminar tuition, and you will be able to earn your continuing education credit. Serving as the coordinator requires you to arrive an hour before the seminar start time. The person who serves as coordinator must stay for up to one hour after the seminar. Coordinating a seminar is not difficult; however, it involves some public speaking, and it is very important for the success of each seminar. Once you make the commitment, HalfMoon Education Inc., the events instructors, and your fellow attendees will be counting on you.
Tuition (non-refundable) must be paid in full, by credit card, prior to being selected as the seminar coordinator. Coordinator positions are filled on a first come, first serve basis.
