Make sure you have the basics covered, have you:

  • Found an awesome group of volunteers to help you on the run up and during the jam

  • Discussed and agreed on the scope (number of participants & duration) of the event

  • Developed a plan to run the event with or without sponsorship

  • Distributed the responsibilities between your volunteer staff

  • Found a suitable venue for your jam

  • Submitted your jam to the GGJ website, had a conversation with your RO, and been given access to the GGJ organisers Slack channel

  • Sent a message to your RO, and said hello to the community on Slack
