Family Reunion Planning
OK, WHO'S IN CHARGE HERE?
The chairperson & Subcommittee Chairs
Just as with planning a wedding, planning a family reunion can be challenging. The best way to manage everything from travel to food to activities is by assembling a reunion planning committee headed by a chairperson.
You will need someone who can stay super organized and who has enough time, energy & eagerness to do it. This person will be responsible for breaking down tasks & responsibilities into specific subcommittees and organizing other family members to be in charge of those subcommittees.

Chairperson & Subcommittee Chairs
The reunion chairperson is the COO (Chief Organizing Officer) for the entire planning stage of the event. They are the head go-to person for everything. the person selected to do this vital job must be extremely organized, with enough tine & willingness to dedicate to the task. The type & number of subcommittees needed will rely mostly on how many people are anticipated to be coming. If there are 50 or less, you may be able to combine 2 or more tasks in a subcommittee. If more than this, you will probably have to have more subcommittees, each with a more specific sets of tasks.
A family reunion input survey, as previously mentions, can help give you a good idea of how many people might be willing to volunteer in the planning & what they might be willing to contribute to the cause. Click here for more info of Chairpersons Responsibilities.
