Regional Crank-In Planning Guide:
Contains what we’ve learned planning conferences and crank-ins, what we wish we had known when we started out, detailed job descriptions for committees, discussion of decisions to be made, checklists, and sample forms.

Small Crank-In Planning Guide:
For one or two day informal events, usually without instructors or vendors. This is the slimmed down version of our full Regional Crank-In Planning Guide.

Crank-In Forms Appendix:
The forms appendix contains a variety of sample forms for both large and small crank-ins.
