Join us for an evening with TEDxSalem!

By Laura Fosmire, July 23, 2015

So you’ve been reading the blog, seeing our posts on social media, our names and faces in the pages of the local newspaper. We’re a pretty cool group of people, led by two individuals who are fearless in their devotion to making Salem better, who love to share our excitement about an awesome event.

Wouldn’t it be fun to hang out with us? Grab a beer? Maybe get a sneak peek at what TEDx is all about?

Well. It’s your lucky day.

Mark it on your calendars now: Tuesday, August 25 at 6:00 p.m., we will be at Venti’s Cafe + Taphouse in South Salem for “An evening with TEDxSalem.”

Please come and join us! A portion of the evening’s sales will go toward planning the best possible TEDxSalem event, which is, of course, scheduled for Oct. 3.

Not only will you have the chance to grab some food and some beer, hang out with old friends and new friends and meet the organizers behind TEDxSalem; we’ll also have local speakers giving mini-TED talks in the spirit of TEDxSalem!

Care to be one of those speakers? We’re still accepting applications! You can apply online here, but you’d better hurry. Applications won’t be accepted after August 1.

There’s no admission. The fundraising part of the evening comes from food and beverage sales.

Questions? Want to brag to your Facebook friends that you’ll be attending an awesome event? Mark yourself down as “going!” on the Facebook event page for the evening.

We can’t wait to see you there!
