FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: TEDxMcMinnville Event Coming to McMinnville in January 2019

(MCMINNVILLE, OR) - On January 26, 2019 at Linfield College, there will be a new event meant to encourage dialogue and to highlight ideas. TEDxMcMinnville is officially licensed and ready to bring “ideas worth spreading.” Following in the footsteps of other Oregon cities including  Bend, Portland, Salem, and more, TEDxMcMinnville will be a three quarter day long event with speakers, performers, and opportunities to connect with fellow attendees.

Planning is in the beginning stages for this new event, but already some details are coming together. The event will be hosted at Linfield College and will feature eight live speakers, three videos, and live performances. The x in TEDx indicates that the event is independently organized from the TED brand, but allows event organizers access to resources and more.  

The executive team for TEDxMcMinnville includes Kitri McGuire, Jeff Knapp, Lacey Dykgraaf, Beth Garcia, and Anna Matzinger. Head organizer, Kitri, states “TEDxMcMinnville is an opportunity for us to spark an engaging dialogue in McMinnville. The town is on the edge of something that I think many community members can feel, and how we address and manage change will be a large factor in what McMinnville looks like in the future.”

Opportunities to be engaged vary from attending the event, to volunteering, sponsoring and more. Different levels are available for sponsorship and the executive team is excited to partner with businesses and organizations in the city to create a truly memorable event.
