Recruitment Opportunities

Recommended Posts

I figured i might as well create a thread where people can post places or events where we might be able to recruit people.

 

I'll start listing things later.

Awesome Idea.  We also have a running spreadsheet in our dropbox.  We can add them to there as well.

I did some looking around on Meetup today and found the following

 

Here is one at Nordonia Library this Saturday. I plan on trying to at least stop out there. Probably play some games.

and here is one for BOGA that we all keep talking about. It's next meeting is April 23rd at noon.

Dave and I were also talking about trying to get a booth at IRok (the concert series in Cuyahoga Falls), however we've been having trouble tracking down any sort of contact information. I figured I'd post it on the forums in case someone has a contact there.

Sounds pretty awesome, and it looks like they do a ton for local charities, so they may be interested in having us there.

I don't have a contact there, but here is the vendor registration form.  You might be able to start there.  Do you guys what to contact them?  Or do you want Whitney @LifeSalubrity or I to ask them.

I also planned on stopping at the malted meeple this week to ask them about putting up or next meeting on their meetup. I figured it would help get the word out. Do we have a particular way that the description should read?

Let me think about that.  Since this is a "Social meeting" it doesn't really have to be too extensive.

I just figured since it's more of a social event, it may come across as a more approachable situation.

I submitted a request on their vendor request form this evening and listed my work contact info.  I will let you know as soon as I hear from them!

 

FYI--Some Akron/Canton event venues we can keep an eye on:

I figured I would revive this and maybe we can turn it into a list of upcoming events so people can get things on their schedule.
