Your answer
What to bring??
Your wisdom, favorite notebook, pen/pencil and a laptop will make your life easier (emailing copy to designers, online research etc.).

Our working space is being donated for the event — Hard to believe, but there are lots of rules and regulations when using an organization’s space so we’re asking designers to bring their own hardware. We will provide large monitors to connect to. I'm sure you're more comfy with your own machine anyway :)

Do you have what it takes? *
Lego my Ego - Egos are lame - Leave ‘em @home
We get it, you’re bad ass. I mean, you’re becoming a FREEThinker after all :) Although, keep in mind that at heart, you are participating because you want to help deserving nonprofits, and so is the rest of your team. Social causes are built on human collaboration.
FREEThinker Code of Conduct *
Your time and talents are very much appreciated by the Ad Club and, more importantly, the non-profits making huge differences in our community. We're so glad you are choosing to be a part of that.
