The key to holding a successful club function, trip or activity is PROMOTION. The club committee needs to identify an effective means of communication with club members and the greater university population.
Posters can be placed on noticeboards (indoor and outdoor) around Building U and up in the MONSU Peninsula Student Lounge to help promote upcoming activities. Posters on noticeboards can be put up with tacks.
Posters need to include the following information:
- Type of event i.e. Annual ball, trip
- When, where and if tickets are being presold
Please remember posters must be authorised at the MONSU Service Desk and must include acknowledgment of MONSU Peninsula’s support i.e. include the MONSU Peninsula Logo.
Please refer to the MONSU Peninsula Poster Policy for further information.
Word of Mouth
Word of mouth is the most effective form of communication on campus. The idea is to have as many people as possible spreading the word about upcoming events by telling their friends and classmates about it. To facilitate word of mouth communication, the committee should make an effort to know as many club members as possible, and have committee members from all year levels and various faculties.
Email & Direct Mail Outs
Email and direct mail outs to members of newsletters, flyers etc. is an effective means of communicating what club events are coming up. It is important that the committee maintain a membership database that is up to date, including new members.
Visible activities on campus
Visible activities on campus attract attention and provide an opportunity to pass information onto members and others about upcoming events. Activities can range from setting up an information table or organising a BBQ.
No, this is not as violent as it sounds! Lecture bashing involves someone getting up at the beginning or end of a lecture and telling everyone in the lecture about an upcoming event. This works quite well, if nothing else it gets people talking, which is what you want. It is a good idea to contact the lecturer for permission beforehand!!
