not so. As a leader/leaders, you can expect to have both your personal and 
professional life to be put on hold for some time before, during and after the 
conference. This means, if you are employed, your employer has to support you 
and give you time off. If self employed, you have to give yourself time off. And 
please remember, volunteers are volunteers - many of them are unreliable and 
vanish just when needed. At that time you will need to step into the breach. 
The advantage of tying up with an institution - ideally an engineering college 
- is that if the college management is involved, most of the infrastructure 
stuff just happens, which is a huge load of your mind. In this respect, we 
could think of approaching Christ University in Bangalore - the management is 
highly supportive of such ventures and there are some dedicated staff members 
who could do a lot.
