PDD Director: Callie Graves

PDD Management Design

PDD is managed using email, Microsoft Project, and Google drive documentation. The director leads a a weekly dial-in meeting with the team leads to discuss the past week's events, next week's tasks, address any issues or concerns, and confirm that we are on track for the project as a whole.

Quality Assurance

To assure the event is quality, attendees are asked to fill out a post event survey and are welcome to submit soft feedback. The soft feedback falls outside of the survey and is reaction based. It can be submitted through a personal contact via phone, email, or in person; soft feedback can also be submitted via the PDD Help online form. The director and team leads assess the previous year's feedback and utilize it to improve PDD for the current year. 

Incident Management

Assistance with any aspect of PDD (attendees, general questions, facility, speakers, sponsors, food, etc.) can be requested by the filling out the PDD help online form or using the email address below. Both options create a record of the request and allow questions to be easily tracked and routed to the appropriate party.
