The Promotions Chair is responsible for the promotion of RoboJackets in the Georgia Tech community and beyond.


Responsibilities

The PR Chair will keep current promotional materials up to date, post to social media and the website with status updates and information about events, and plan and organize social events with the Secretary. The PR Chair will also be responsible for branding through clothing, business cards, and recruiting materials.

Materials to Maintain

T-Shirts

T-shirts are created to serve as an item for give aways at events, propaganda, gifts to supporters, and other contacts. They should be ready to be ordered when all the dues are to be paid in Fall (around mid-October).

To make the T-shirts, collect the vector wire frame file of all the robots and create a design.  (Vector files are essential for quality of the picture)

Once completed, they should be uploaded here.

More information can be found here.

Polos

Polos are the corner stone of our appearance at events. They should be ready to be ordered when all the dues are to be paid in Spring (around mid-February).

More information can be found here.

Jackets

Jackets are created to further promote our image.   They are ordered depending on the demand and are paid by the individual.  One suggestion is to alternate between a heavier jacket and a light jacket, perhaps including water resistance.

More information can be found here.

Business Cards

Business Cards are created to promote our club and provide contact information. They should be ordered once all leaders have been elected (around late September).

Once completed, they should be uploaded here.

General PR Material

PR material is regularly updated and created, which includes:

  • Once the new officers are official, the sign outside the shop should be updated with the officer's information, found in the root folder of dropbox.
  • Fliers: Fliers are printed every year for recruitment which promotes our name, what we do, and location.  Fliers should be ready by the first FASET (around mid-June).  When the first General Meeting date is established, the fliers should be updated with that information.
  • Banners and Sponsor banners: Banners should be regularly updated for quallity and to reflect sponsors.
  • Team shirts: Individual teams have taken it upon themselves to create their own competition-themed shirts. Making it a more regular option may be an opportunity for the future.

Feel free to start more fun branding products.

Resume Book

The Resume Book is used to show companies prospective interns from our organization when they visit.  People should be let known that this resource is available, especially during Career Fairs when resumes are updated (mid-September and mid-January).
For convenience, one suggestion is to keep a digital record of everyone and their order in the book should they want to update their resume in the book.

Sponsorship Packet

The Sponsorship Packets is vital for recruiting sponsors. It contains information about the different teams and RoboJackets as a whole. The PR chair will work with the sitting President when creating the packet over the summer.
