Parsons Corporation
Speaker: Pam Wiedenbeck
“Tree Frog Night” 2019 Rose Parade float
No registration required!

Panda-Monium was the winner of the Bob Hope Humor Trophy at the Rose Parade earlier this year.

We will discuss the milestone management and application of 2018 lessons learned necessary to get an all-volunteer float into the Tournament of Roses Parade.

We will discuss how even a simplified float does not necessarily mean a project without drama.
