We need a few good men (and women!)

Our April submission deadline has come and gone and now we have to sort through all the ideas in the old Inbox and narrow them down to a short list of four who’ll then be invited to pitch their idea at our ONE-YEAR ANNIVERSARY AWESOME EXTRAVAGANZA on Thursday, April 26 at Endeavor Arts & Events Space. Look for our announcement of April’s set of Top4 Finalists and Honourable Mentions around April 20.

In the meantime, Team Awesome Calgary’s growing fast and there’s so much we’d like to do in Year Two to try to expose as many Awesome Ideas as we can.

As such, we’re looking to grow the team! We’ve got a few Trustee spots opening up soon and we can always use a few more volunteers to help out at Pitch Nights or with the day-to-day stuff behind the scenes.

If you’ve been looking for an opportunity to join Awesome Foundation – Calgary as a Trustee or a Volunteer, or if you just want to learn more about what AF-Calgary does, come to our Meet & Greet this Sunday, April 15 at 10 a.m. at Melrose Cafe & Bar at 730 – 17 Avenue SW (Note the location change. With all the interest lately, we had to find a bigger venue).

  • What: AF-Calgary Meet & Greet
  • Where: Melrose Cafe & Bar (730 – 17 Ave SW)
  • When: Sunday, April 15 at 10 a.m.

Here you’ll be able to meet some of the AF-Calgary Trustees of Awesome as well as members from our support team of volunteers where you can learn about some of their experiences as a part of Team Awesome Calgary or what they could specifically use some help with.

A list of what we could use some immediate help with is on the right-hand sidebar of this website, but it’s not inclusive. This organization has evolved organically driven by people’s individual motivated interests and unique skill sets, so if you feel like you have something to contribute that’s not on the list or can be clearly defined, come visit us anyway! We’re open to all sorts of Awesome ideas and skills, especially the ones we haven’t thought of yet!

If you can’t make it to meet the team this Sunday, feel free to join us at April’s Thousand Dollar Thursday on Thursday, April 26 at Endeavor Arts & Event Space. Doors open at 6 p.m.

Finally, we’re currently accepting submissions for the May 2012 prize. If you have an Awesome Idea that you’d like to submit to AF-Calgary for consideration, fill out this handy-dandy web form. The deadline for submissions for May is Thursday, May 10, 2012 at 11:59 p.m.

Hope to see you out this Sunday, and if not, on Thursday, April 26!
