    Fall 2017 Planning

    • Eboard
      • Please let Breanna know by Friday 4/21 if you would like to be on Eboard for FS17
      • Next year E-board members will be required to miss no more than 2 general meetings and 1 e-board meeting each semester, unless an emergency presents itself.
        • If you can’t commit to the time commitment, general membership may be more suited
    • What is AD|COM’s USP
      • Also known as a unique selling proposition (USP), your USP is a clear statement that describes the benefit of your offer, how you solve your customer’s needs and what distinguishes you from the competition.
      • A tight-knit and friendly group that works toward getting to know its members and making them feel comfortable within professional organizations (as opposed to large clubs where you can get lost in the mix). Ad Com isn’t hyper focused on one major, we are about exploring other majors and allowing members to move up into e-board.
    • How do we increase engagement/membership (both among eboard and general membership?)
      • AOP
        • Let’s look into that – Megan
      • Sparticipation

        • Workshops work well
        • More guest speakers like Rocio
          • Delta Dental
          • Breanna Netvantage
          • Speak on intern job experiences
          • Amanda guest speaker
        • Social media, digital marketing/SEO, Research on companies, mock career fair, Resume/Linkedin, Writing, How to set yourself apart
      • Campaign competition (something we start with first meeting and continue throughout semester? – focus on an element of campaign at each meeting?)
        • Do this with shoes or mock client at the beginning of every meeting throughout semester
        • Great idea!
        • This could be the icebreaker
        • Greg Taucher
      • Mentorship
