Event Planning Committee

Starting April 2013, we plan to hold 1, 2, and/or 3 events each month at Morgan Lake. Events include clean up days and activities in honor of a National, environment-related "Day" (i.e. National Get Outdoors Day in June). To effectively and efficiently organize these events, an Event Planning Committee will be formed. Responsibilities include:
  1. Recruit event participants and vendors
  2. Brainstorm activities and games
  3. Brainstorm potential sponsors
  4. Brainstorm potential media outlets that may want to cover the event
  5. Determine materials needed for event (i.e. how many tables are needed, etc.)
  6. Flyer design
  7. Hand-out design
  8. Event promotion through social media and hanging paper flyers.
