[Perform-talk] National Performing Arts agenda 2014

Good morning Jordy and everyone,

    Also if you're going to patch in to the hotel sound system you'll need 
to clear that with Mrs. Jernigan too. I can tell you from having delt with 
her in the past she prefers that the group wanting their events recorded or 
streamed use their own sound system and a high-quality one at that. Patching 
in to a hotel sound system can be an expensive business around $80.00 per 
room per day for example. Using your own sound system also gives you 
complete control over its operation and functioning. A number of events that 
occurred at several past national conventions were recorded by me and now 
grace our national Web site and several affiliate Web sites as well. We're 
planning to be in Orlando next year. Depending on the condition of my sound 
system, how many affiliates want their events recorded or streamed etc will 
determine if I can fit the Performing Arts Division in or not. All the best.

Peter Donahue
