CITR WORKSHOP SERIES- JUNE EDITION

Authors

THE WORLD OF EVENT PLANNING, STRATEGIZING, MANAGING & FUNDRAISING
Facilitator: Sterling Aurel, AMS UBC, Cystic Fibrosis Canada, Vancouver Chapter
Tuesday, June 26 6:00-8:00PM, Room 42U

In this workshop we will discuss how to create events that participants take ownership of, and how vital that is for the ongoing success of your fundraising efforts. We will briefly touch on marketing efforts, recruiting participants, tracking fundraising goals, setting realistic fundraising expectations. Learn how to effectively get participants to feel like they own the event, the importance of post event follow up, and spend a bit of time going over the strengths and weaknesses of past fundraisers.

SOCIAL MEDIA 101, VERSION 2.0
Facilitator: Vanessa Tam, Native Shoes, Fortune Sound Club, Catalog Gallery
Wednesday, June 27 6:00-8:00PM, Room 42U

An exploration of expanding the CITR brand (and its many facets) through social media- participants will learn the in’s out and out’s of Facebook, Twitter, tumblr, Instagram and more: how to use them, and how to use them effectively. Skills covered will include tweeting, re-posting, the structure of tagging, and how to connect to other users, organizations and groups through the use of tagging.

LIVE/REMOTE BROADCASTS, SOUND & TECH
Facilitator: Andrew Longhurst, CITR
Thursday, June 28 6:00-8:00PM, CITR Lounge

This training session will attempt to familiarize people with the gear and procedures surrounding live broadcasts and live sound. We will look at both portable live broadcast mixers and larger format live music mixers and learn how these interact with microphones and feeds from other boards. We will also look at how to record and broadcast from your laptop via connection to the internet and how to get this signal on the air. The majority of these skills will be transferrable to any live sound or broadcast application, as the gear you will be using is comparable and functionally similar to the majority of that which you would find in any venue/broadcast location.

All workshops are free to CITR members.
