Commenting on PR/Events Blog class instructions:
The cut off is Thursday at midnight. Every week, post what you have done on this list. (Feel free to post more than once or for something that you've done outside of this list.) Rachel and I will be keeping track of who's doing what.

Every Friday starting at 10:45 we will meet in our groups. Come prepared with suggestions for each week. This week, PR will be converging with Events to discuss the launch event planned for December 4th at the food co-op. (I will post confirmation of this date as soon as I get it.)

To Do Lists are due before you go on friday - I need one from PR and one from Events so that I can put it up here.

***Keep in mind, the PR list is a good example of a weekly list. The events list below is over the course of the next month. It would be good to separate that up week per week.***


1. Print Posters (Multiple people can do this)
2. Distribute Posters (Multiple people can do this)
3. Contact Advisor heads of Art Dept.
4. Continue with class announcements, make handout with catalyst email (or poster) (Multiple people can do this)

Print out these posters and get them up around IV, campus, bring to class, post on your feeds etc.
