(Upcoming events or special points they want people to bring up at the booth) Rewards for volunteering Open Floor Fan Expo Our members are on the fence about if going to the con is worth the time and money. Suggested for future years to partner up with an event or panel to attract and engage people in alternatives then a booth Game Day Event Maybe having mini events across the city/ surrounding areas We worry about the lack of number of volunteers Unless we can make partnerships where they will run the event for us. Highlighting different local events that are raising money for it. (maybe not 24hrs) Other Outreach Have some of our members reach out to other communities to target different audiences Social media hashtag? (#extralifeto or something that focuses sickkids and local gamers) Get it trending might bring traffic to our twitter account. Few new locations for events and socials to look into. If anyone has ideas please do some research and send us an email or post on the forums. Staying Connected Google does give out free space and emails to non profit groups Tara is going to look into what sickkids has and how we can get involved. Hoodies/ t-shirts We are doing another order of clothes We will be posting a link to an order form Pick up will only be local within a certain time period. Sickkids Looking into if we can send postcards, postcards or a booth in the hospital Sickkids Activators going to look into if we can team up with someone or get involved in some way Next Month's Meeting: June 26th 2017 Location: Raiders Esport Center RSVP: here

Whats best practice for getting ANYTHING printed from the Guild Toolkit & Multimedia Kit? we have like one pull up 24 by 48 banner and no idea where it came from. I see all these other booths at events and have all kinds of signage and I WANT THAT! we had a great meeting this past week and everyone is back from ELU and on fire and I want to keep it going. Feel free to dm here, tweet, or how ever you want to reach me! Any and all insight to help improve our guild, our numbers, our approach or anything will be accepted with open arms! Thanks! Bobby
