I'm interested in being a local host; what support will I receive?
Your Jam is your Jam, and you are free to shape it as you like - but there is no need to reinvent the wheel. There is a wide community of experienced hosts who are happy to help you, and who have built up a library of tools, documents and datafiles which you can adapt to your Jam. They are also happy to give advice and experience.
Hosts share ideas, advice and tools on a closed online platform called the Basecamp. We recommend that each Jam have at least one person (two or more is better) on the Basecamp.
The community of Jammers has also produced an Organisers' Handbook which is a great resource for Hosts. It will help you set up a Jam, and make sure your Jam feels like rock and roll. Ask for a copy!
