    SANDWICH BOARDS — Excellent idea Dave. I don’t know if I’d want the job, but sandwich boards do work. They stand out and draw attention. Look for a volunteer personality that also knows how to draw attention and you’ll have a winning combination!

    FLYERS — Yes, they should be inexpensive if not free. Today’s desktop tech makes it so. In addition, many speakers will send you a professionally poroduced flyer or poster to promote their date. All you have to do is get it copied and plastered all over campus. (NO LITTERING PLEASE!). Dave, do you share anything with the student leaders that you train to help them promnote your training dates in advance?

    Rick, this is excellent stuff! Two other thoughts: 1) One of my most successful student groups used a sandwich board to promote their organization. One member would walk around campus wearing it and a couple of other members would follow along handing out flyers. This got a lot of attention and was different. The other is on flyers. They don’t have to be super expensive. With programs like Publisher, you can make great looking flyers, use pictures, and you can print them in your dorm room inexpensively. Buy a ream of pastel or other color paper for $5-6 and you can do something that really stands out.
