Outreach Committee Minutes 12/6/2011

Minutes Tuesday, Dec. 6th 2011 6pm

8 people present

At this meeting we began crafting a mission statement for the working group and brainstormed actions to carry out the mission.

The four main goals of the Outreach Working Group (which will be discussed further and perhaps formalized at the next OWG meeting) are:

  1. Outreach to other Occupy Carbondale members (the improvement and development of better internal communication).
  2. Outreach to the Carbondale and SIUC communities.
  3. Outreach to other Southern Illinois communities.
  4. Outreach to the local media.

Ideas were generated and discussed to meet these four goals

Outreach to other Occupy Carbondale members

  • Master contact list (Danielle is working on this; Dan will create password protected page for this on occupycarbondale.org)
  • Phone tree/text tree (Danielle is working on this)
  •  IMC Poster Board and digital document on “How to plan/publicize events.” (Joe is working on this)

Outreach to the Carbondale and SIUC communities.

  • Create informational flier and poster (Rich is working on this)
  • Speaker’s Bureau (Rich, Sarah, Cathy, Sheridan are working on specific tasks to start this)

Outreach to other Southern Illinois communities

  • Speaker’s Bureau (Rich, Sarah, Cathy, Sheridan are working on specific tasks to start this)

Outreach to Media

  • Media contact sheet  (Danielle is working on this; Rich can help with Green Party’s media list if needed; Joe will use this info in the “how to plan event board”; Dan will put this on webpage when gathered)

Other ideas were discussed, but these are the things folks committed to working on

It was agreed that we will meet at this time regularly: Tuesday’s 6pm @ Occupy HQ – all are welcome to attend.
