A few weeks ago, I authored a council agenda item that requested the City Manager to apply for a license (free of charge) to host a TED-XLongBeach.
Last week, I hosted the first planning committee meeting at City Hall. About 20 attended and what is amazing is that many had already started to take ownership at making this a fantastic event. A facebook page: TedxLongBeach had been set up as well as a website:www.tedxlongbeach.com.
We are currently working on a venue in November of this year -- Center Theater near the Terrace Theater or CSULB Carpenter Center.
If you are interested in participating, please contact my council office and speak with Josh Butler at: 562 570-6932.
