CAMA 2012 Parameters

Admittedly, it has taken a while to get things where I want them this particular CAMA year. There have been a number of things that have prohibited me from really putting forth the full effort I had planned on presenting for this years program. However, the good thing about strategic work is that you generally have an idea months in advance and just allow it to simmer for a while until the time is right to deliver a completed product. In the case of the parameters for the 2012 Christian Acappella Music Awards, much of the heavy lifting was done long ago on various evenings when a thought would come to me and I would do some jotting. In that it’s now September, the show is starting to come together the way it was initially envisioned, save for the production company whom we have yet to decide on. But, with essentially 14 months to go, we’re pretty much where we want to be from a program/weekend management standpoint. And so, I’ve decided to go ahead and present the parameters for the show in whole.

Good Times //
